Old Girls Association

Past Events

In 2012 we reformed the committee and have a great group of people committed to bringing energy and new ideas to the Old Girls’ Association. 

The latest edition of the Once Were Easters newsletter is available here (Feb 2015).

Old Girls' Charms






Honouring East school leavers with a charm

“Many of the girls were wearing them at school the next day, as a bracelet charm or necklace. They loved them!!”

This was the report back from Acting Principal Ann Greenaway the day after the OWE’s new limited edition silver charms were awarded to the school leavers at Prizegiving in November 2012.

Designed by girls on the Arts Committee, these charms in the shape of a compass were inspired by the words of the school haka. The plan is to create a different charm and motif for each year, building up a special collection over time.

Charms can be purchased by old girls for a special price through Beverly Upton.
