Old Sydneian's Office

Old Sydneians live and work all over the world.

For those of you who live near Sydney, the School organises many activities which will help you keep in touch with your friends and former teachers. Reunions are an important part of this; we also support a Big Band for Old Sydneians called Dr V’s Swing Thing, an Old Sydneians’ Orchestra, Cricket Club, Rugby Club and a variety of occasional sporting clubs. Each year the Headmaster travels to Europe and the United States where he meets groups of Old Boys.

If you would like further information about any of this, or if you would like to organise a reunion, please contact Wendy Scotter in the Old Sydneians’ Office at College Street. Her email address is oldsydneians@sydgram.nsw.edu.au

Foundations magazine and The Sydneian provide convenient ways of keeping up with events here. If you are not receiving these, and would like to, please make sure that we have your current address details correct once again by contacting Wendy Scotter at the above address.

The Old Sydneians' Office plays a key role in the life of the School, assisting with fundraising, communications and relations with Old Boys.

Sydney Grammar School Foundation

The Sydney Grammar School Foundation was established in 1979 and is a public company limited by guarantee. Today the Foundation is governed by the elected Trustees of the School. The various associations within the School are represented on the Fundraising Advisory Board which supports the work of the Foundation. A number of funds are managed through the Foundation all of which are tax deductible. These include the Building Fund and the Library Fund.

Sydney Grammar School Foundation Scholarship Fund

The vision of providing an endowment to support scholarships is as old as the School itself. In fact, it was one of the School’s founders, Dr John Woolley, who first envisaged Grammar as a fee paying school supported by an endowment which paid for scholarships. This vision is strongly supported by the Trustees of the School.

Donors wishing to support our means-tested programme are now able to claim a tax deduction.

Old Sydneians' Scholarship Fund

A few years ago, a group of Old Boys from 1948 established the Old Sydneians' Scholarship Fund. The aim is to raise two million dollars - the amount needed to put one means-tested scholar in each of Forms I-VI.

To help us to reach this ambitious target, we are seeking ambassadors from various year groups to assist us in our efforts. If you would like to assist, please contact the Old Sydneians' Office on 9332 5843. Donations are now tax deductible.

Bequests

For those wishing to remember the School through a bequest, the matter of tax deductibility may not be an issue. In a sense a bequest is the ultimate gift, a way of expressing the affection you have for your School. By giving in this way you can enable a talented boy, whose parents cannot afford the fees, a chance to take advantage of all that Sydney Grammar School can offer.

A bequest can take the form of:

  • Stocks and shares
  • Works of art, collections, personal effects such as jewellery
  • A specified amount of money
  • A life insurance policy
  • Life income plan, annuities, or trusts
  • Proportion or whole of an estate
  • A specific bequest of property

For further information on any of the above, please contact the Old Sydneians' Office, on (02) 9332 5843.
