Old Girls’ Association

The Woodford House Old Girls Association (WHOGA) is an integral link between the history of our school and the present school community, and has a membership of Old Girls across a vast array of year groups.

WHOGA offers lifetime contact with school friends and peers, and helps organise events, reunions and get-togethers throughout the year.  The twice yearly Tempus magazine is sent to Old Girls with stories about current school activities, Old Girls news and notices, and information about upcoming reunions.

We love to hear from Old Girls and encourage you to keep us up to date with life after Woodford House, whether it be your graduation, change of address, marriages and births or any other interesting news.

By joining the WHOGA, you will be part of a fantastic association that will help you stay in touch with friends, build networks, and enjoy the wider Woodford House community in New Zealand and abroad.

Scholarships available

The Woodford House Old Girls’ Association, along with investment from the Endowment Trust, provides scholarships for intending and present students. Any relationship to an Old Girl is an advantage but not essential. WHOGA aims to award these scholarships with the intention of making a financial difference, and by helping maintain strong family connections to Woodford House.  All scholarship applications are due by the end of July each year.

For further information, please contact the Old Girls’ Scholarship Council Secretary – Nicola Kelsy on brian.kelsey@xtra.co.nz or Woodford House Administration on suzanna.elliott@woodford.school.nz.

The Woodford House Foundation is a registered charitable trust and an independent entity. Through the Boards of Proprietors and Trustees, the Foundation has a close association with the School and the Old Girls’ and Parents’ Associations.

The Foundation’s purpose is to take a long term perspective on the future of Woodford. Working alongside the wider Woodford community, the Foundation focuses on providing for Woodford’s on-going prosperity as well as maintaining and upholding the values of the special character of the School.

More specifically, the Foundation endeavours to support Woodford’s major funding needs beyond those derived from traditional sources. The Foundation’s current focus includes a significant commitment to boarding scholarships as well as performing a strategic role in regard to capital intensive building projects.
