About Us


We love keeping in touch with Old Girls and you can email us at oga@cghs.school.nz. You can contact a Christchurch committee member or one of the branches directly using the contact details below.

Each CGHS Old Girls’ Association (OGA) branch is run by a committee of volunteers. These committees, with support from the school, create opportunities and events for Old Girls to network, reminisce and inspire each other and remember the school.

We love bringing old girls together. We liaise regularly with the school and enjoy giving back to the school. However, the OGA operates on a very tight budget and handles its finances with great prudence. You can support the OGA by becoming a financial life member and/or making a donation.

To keep our costs down, almost all our communications with members are by email. If you want to be kept informed, please make sure we have your up-to-date contact details.

Another way to make a difference is to join or help the committee. We would love you to join our friendly group. Please do get in touch!

We are always looking for ideas, suggestions and feedback. So please contact us. It’s as easy as sending an email to oga@cghs.school.nz. Please note that we don’t clear this email address daily. If you need to contact us urgently, please contact a committee member directly.
