The Old Collegiate Girls’ Guild (OCGG) is an association of past pupils of Collegiate Girls’ High School in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
The chief aim is the cultivation of friendship among former pupils of the Collegiate School, and the maintenance of their active interest in the School and its present pupils.
All girls who have left the Junior and Senior Collegiate Schools, provided that they have attended the High School for a period of not less than two years, are eligible for membership. In addition, girls who spent only their Matric Year at Collegiate are also eligible. (For a Membership Application Form, click here…)
The Old Collegiate Girls’ Guild is based in Port Elizabeth, but has Subsidiary Branches in Johannesburg, Cape Town, Durban, East London and St Francis Bay. Branches in the UK and Australia are in the pipeline. (For more information, contact Gaynor Berry at email@example.com)
