COGA Event: O Teacher, Where Art Thou? THIS SUNDAY!

11 Feb

After months of preparation, it’s hard to believe that the inaugural COGA Teachers Event is finally upon us!

The event is THIS SUNDAY (17 February) and there are only a few days left to buy your tickets. Don’t miss out on this amazing event – buy your tickets today!

We are please to announce another 2 teachers will be joining us for afternoon tea. Mrs Ruth Perram was a well-loved History teacher, and we welcome one of the ORIGINAL teachers of Cheltenham Girls High School, Mrs Beverley Westwood (nee Hassett). Mrs Westwood was a Science and Maths teacher with the first intake of Cheltenham Girls in 1957, way back when the girls were starting out at Epping Boys High School! We can’t wait to hear their stories!

As an extra special treat, all attendees will be given an exclusive guided tour of the Museum of Ancient Cultures. The Museum is all ours for the afternoon, so you can view the collections at your leisure. Bring the family – they’ll love it!

Tickets are still on sale for a strictly limited time. We accept payment by cheque (made out to Cheltenham Old Girls Association and sent to PO Box 1594, Macquarie Centre NSW 2113) or by Direct Debit / EFT Transfer (BSB: 659000, A/c No.: 668862). If you are paying by EFT, please use your name as a reference and email us (cheltenhamoldgirls@gmail.com) to confirm payment. Tickets are on sale until Wednesday 13 February.

Hope to see you on Sunday 17 February!

COGA Secretary

    I am a ‘very old’ girl, being one of those timid 1st year girls who crossed muddy ground to enter the only wing of the newly built school in 1958. It was raining and I was trying so very hard to keep my beautiful pink uniform clean and dry.
    My father, Mr. Alan Howarth, now deceased, was the first president of the P&C Association.
    I have a copy of the letter Bessie Mitchell wrote to the girls when we were in our final year and she was on an Education mission in Russia. Her words were profound and inspiring. She was a wonderful lady.
    Whilst perusing this website I became a little nostalgic and felt compelled to pass on this little bit of information.
