Historic group looks to attract new girls
FORMER pupils of a Wirral school are invited to join them and get involved in a series of activities.
Wirral Grammar School for Girls’ Old Girls Association are still going strong after nearly 80 years.
The group was set up in 1934.
They hold several events throughout the year including a day trip around the region.
Their next meeting will be their annual general meeting which takes place on Thursday, September 5 at Wirral Grammar School for Girls on Heath Road, Bebington from 7.30pm.
Following that is an annual dinner which will be held on Friday, January 10.
Sharon Molyneux went to the school between 1969 to 1977.
She said: “The association started in 1934, shortly after school opened.
“We still have a member the first intake – Betty Lloyd.
“Our treasurer Marjorie Wells was a former pupil and was deputy head at the school, many former girls will remember her.
“The current head Mrs Elaine Cogan is our president, so the association spans a considerable time.
“We have a varied programme of events held throughout the year and we send out regular newsletters giving details about them.
“We also compile a larger booklet every couple of years which we invite old girls to make a contribution about what they have been doing.
“Old girls still have close contact with school, and we take a great interest in all that goes on at present.
“We hope any former pupils who are not already involved will want to come and join us.
“Members can be from any year when they attended the school.
“It would be great to attract new members for the group to continue.”
