For the last 5 years now there has been a valuable network within the Geelong Grammar community to connect every Past Parent anywhere in the world. The Past Parents’ Network makes it possible to keep friendships fresh and alive and retain the great depth of wisdom and experience that resides among the parent group. The Network provides a valuable vehicle to maintain links, share news, follow our children’s lives, occasionally meet face to face and keep in touch with the School Community.
The 2017 Autumn Cocktail event at Sam Hayward's home was attended by over 150 Past Parents. It was so wonderful to see people from Glamorgan days, Queensland, NSW and country Victoria and we look forward to seeing many more at our November function in Kyneton VIC.
The annual Hong Kong cocktail event for 2017 will be held on the 17th of October, at Michael Nock's Art Gallery. This Chapter is growing and bringing many benefits to the GGS families in the region.
The outlook is bright for our Network with many varied activities planned for the future – so if you wish to continue your association with this great institution that is Geelong Grammar School, feel welcome to join our events and spread the word.
For further details contact the Co-Chairs.
