Windsor Girls' School Alumnae
Windsor Girls’ School Alumnae (WGSA) is a friendship group which was founded as Windsor County Girls’ Old Girls Association in 1922, two years after the founding of the School. Its activities then were numerous and the Association was actively involved with the progress of the School. We rebranded as WGSA a few years ago, from Windsor Old Girls’ Association (WOGA). Now, nearly a hundred years on, we continue in our support for Windsor Girls’ School and maintain strong relationships with the school Heads.
We meet at the school socially twice a year, for a tea in spring hosted by the committee, and in September for lunch, which is also our AGM. In the past, celebrations have been held to mark the decades of the school. In September 2021 we celebrated the Centenary of the school with a Centenary Dinner, held at the School (delayed by one year due to Covid restrictions).
We propose to hold a dinner every five years, to allow for more frequent gatherings of the membership. The next one is to be in 2025.
We maintain an archive of historical importance, housed at the School, comprising photographs, press cuttings and other memorabilia donated by ex students. One of our members, Susan Mercer has written a book ‘Girls in Green’, which details the history of our school from 1920 to 2005. Copies are available to purchase from the school.
We have a Committee comprising a Chair, Secretary and Treasurer, plus a small group of committee members. We keep an up to date membership list. Membership is open to every ex-student of the school.
Applications to join WGSA can be made by contacting our Secretary, Natasha Teeder, contact details are below. There is no fee to join, nor any membership fees. You will be asked to provide your contact details, the years you were in attendance, and your surname whilst at school. An annual newsletter is sent out to all members, detailing the activities of the group.
