The Firbank Old Grammarians’ Association (FOGA) was founded in November 1918 and grew rapidly during the 1920s and 1930s. In an era when few women were part of the workforce, thriving literary, drama and sports clubs contributed to the vitality of the Association. World War II saw many changes, but the spirit remained. Our Old Grammarians cherish friendships made at School and have regular class reunions.
FOGA sponsors the Cameron Scholarship Fund and old Grammarians wishing to donate to this fund, or make a bequest, will be able to do so with tax benefits successfully applied for by the School. (Contact the Advancement Office on 9591 5188).
Firbank Young Graduate Alumni (FYGA) is open to all students who have left Firbank in the past 10 years. If you are interested in joining the FYGA committee or have any suggestions about activities, please email [email protected]
The School has an extensive archival collection dating back to its foundation. The collection is conserved and maintained by an archivist. It includes a collection of past uniforms, school memorabilia, an extensive photographic collection, samples of student work and archival footage. The collection has been catalogued for ease of reference and is utilised in the History curriculum. Since 2006, $6,000 has been donated annually by the Old Grammarians to support the work of the Firbank Archivist. For the last 100 years, the school has been home to thousands of students from Prep to Year 12, and has gone through considerable changes. It is important that these are documented and records retained.
If you have any items of memorabilia that you wish to donate to the collection please contact the FOGA – [email protected]
