Connecting Senior School families of Geelong Grammar School

The relatively newly established Friends of Senior School (FoSS) Committee is dedicated to supporting the families and students in Senior School at Geelong Grammar School. Together with the School, we are working to build a continued sense of belonging and connectedness while building vital community and incredible long-term friendships.

Since 2019, the FoSS Committee has stayed true to the mission statement by carrying out several engagement initiatives. In September 2019 FoSS hosted a hugely successful lunch for all Senior School parents and guardians at The Glasshouse, Olympic Park. This was a wonderful day and we are thrilled to continue with it as our new tradition – a Spring Luncheon held just prior to the Whole School Athletics weekend in September, hopefully, capturing most of our community all over the globe.

A diverse and inclusive group, the FoSS hold regular meetings with the Heads of Senior School and Corio Campus to discuss plans for upcoming activities.
