The Committee of the Abbotsleigh Old Girls’ Union has a meeting on the first Wednesday of each month, during School terms. The meetings are held in the Senior School reception area. All Old Girls of the School are welcome at these meetings.
Two annual networking events are held twice a year in Sydney to allow Old Girls to meet and hear speakers talk on a range of topics. We generally host a dinner as well as a breakfast event.
Past speakers have included Julie White, inaugural CEO of Chief Executive Women, Katie Rigg-Smith (1995) CEO of Media Agency Mindshare Australasia, Dr Meredith Burgmann, former President of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly, Mrs Judith Poole, Headmistress of Abbotsleigh and Sharon Longridge partner at Worklife Wellness.
Suggestions for future speakers are warmly welcomed.
Ladies Golf Day
Golf Day has a history over 60 years and is held annually on the second Friday after the Melbourne Cup. Old Girls, past and current Abbotsleigh mothers, FAbbS and friends of Abbotsleigh all play on this day arranged by the Abbotsleigh Old Girls’ Union. All Old Girls are entered in the Old Girls' individual stableford competition competing for the AOGU Cup and Salver Award. Please contact the Old Girls Relations Manager if you would like to play this year and scroll down to keep a lookout for the Golf Day in the Old Girl events area below.
Card Day has been on the Old Girl calendar for decades and is traditionally held in the first two weeks of May. It is a leisurely day of bridge with old (and new!) friends. Any profit made on the day joins AOGU contributions towards the Kathleen McCredie Scholarship. The event is held in the Grace Cossington Smith Gallery in Vindin House and often coincides with an art exhibition.
