The Nga Tawa Old Girls’ Association was founded in 1916 with Miss Molly Barker as President and currently has over 3000 active members. Two Old Girl Executive members serve on the Diocesan Board.
The aim of the Association is to provide a link for past pupils to maintain contact with each other and the school and to support its traditions, while moving forward in the 21st Century.
The main activities of the association are
- To support the Old Girls’ Scholarship awarded annually to a Year 13 student
- To offer endowments to daughters and granddaughters of old girls towards their school fees
- To raise money through fundraising and through activities at the school
- To maintain a watching brief on the special character of the school
- To produce an annual newsletter and distribute it to all financial members of the Association
- To assist the school with funds for specific projects, such as the outdoor area and in the Chapel
- To encourage students leaving the school to become continuing members of the school family by joining the Old Girls’ Association
All leavers are offered the opportunity to become Life Members by paying a one-off fee at the conclusion of their days at Nga Tawa.
