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 our school events such as gatherings, performances, career and sporting events, and other school events.

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 have as many of your peer year (the year you completed/would have completed year 12) group as possible are involved, 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 update your details form.

Ballarat and Queen’s Old Grammarians’ Association

Ballarat Grammar alumni can gain a lifetime membership to the Ballarat and Queen’s Old Grammarian’s Association to continue the strong connection with the school community.

The Association was formed in 1974 shortly after the amalgamation of Queen’s Church of England Girls Grammar School and Ballarat Grammar School to form Ballarat and Queen’s Anglican Grammar School. The BQOGA Committee keeps the vast network of friends, business contacts and mentors connected through a range of events each year.

Our focus:

  • We foster good fellowship among all past students
  • We work to preserve the rich heritage of the School and its predecessors
  • We nominate representatives to the Ballarat Grammar Board and Foundation
  • We support and encourage present students at the School by providing scholarships and bursaries as well as other awards in recognition of outstanding effort or achievement
