From the President
The OGA recently welcomed the 2017 graduates as our newest members, at the Year 12 graduation ceremony held in November. We wish them all the best in their life after Santa and look forward to seeing them at OGA events in the future.
It has been another very busy year for the OGA, with our Coordinator, Jacqui Daniels, working flat out three days a week organising programs, reunions, other events, the Mentoring Project, Life Lessons in a Lunchbox, movie night and fun run fundraising events, Mother/daughter High Tea, the OGA Service Program and more.
This year, we have had a steady flow of interns to assist Jacqui and they have been invaluable. Their hard work and commitment has been greatly appreciated by the team. Of course, none of this would be possible without the strong support of the OGA Committee, the College and our members, so a big thank you to everyone involved.
In 2018, the OGA requires your support and is looking for assistance with:
- Mentoring through a range of short and long term program (including events, careers day, life lessons). You will soon be receiving an email with further details about the mentoring opportunities and how you can be part of it.
- Assist in coordinating a roster to serve and cook food on a monthly basis as part of the Feeding the Homeless Program. This will not involve a large amount of work – just coordinating 5/6 people to prepare a lasagne, and approximately 4-6 people to assist serving for 1 ½ hours each month. If you can help, please contact Jacqui on 6330 0279
Save the Date: Monday 19 March at 6.00 pm for our OGA Biannual General Meeting.
As the end of 2017 is rapidly approaching, the OGA would like to wish everyone a very safe and happy Christmas. Special thanks once again to Jacqui, the OGA committee and College staff. Finally, we say a fond farewell to College Principal Ian Elder, on his retirement and sincerely thank him for his support of the OGA and wish him all the best.
Danielle Cattalini, President
