The Ballarat and Queen’s Old Grammarians’ Association embraces past students from Queen’s College, Ballarat Grammar School, Queen’s Church of England Girls Grammar School, Church of England Grammar School, and Ballarat and Queen’s Anglican Grammar School.
Our network of more than 11,000 Old Grammarians are spread across the globe. The Old Grammarian community connects you with many opportunities and a network of people across various fields and professions who hold shared values and aspirations.
Reunions and events
Our Old Grammarians are invited to attend our school events such as gatherings, performances, career and sporting events, and other events held throughout the year.
We extend a warm welcome for you to attend your peer year reunions – we hold two-year and five-year reunions, a Gala Reunion (10, 20, 30 & 40 years), and our 50 + Luncheon. Reunions are a great opportunity to reconnect, reminisce and enjoy the company of old friends.
It is our aim to involve as many of your peer year (the year you completed/would have completed year 12) as possible, including those who may have left at other times but identify best with this year group.
To ensure you receive invitations to relevant events, please update your contact details via our alumni update your details form.
