Old Scholars' Association

The Walford family extends far beyond the school gates. All girls leaving school are encouraged to join the Old Scholars' Association which has a thriving membership of Old Scholars both in Australia and overseas.

Walford Old Scholars provide valuable support and mentoring to current students. Many are speakers at careers evenings, House Dinners or during assemblies, providing important role modeling to all within the school.

Annually the Association elects a President, Office Bearers and a Committee (a total of 15 people) and is represented by all age groups. The Committee is supported by the Marketing and Communications Office who manage the day-to-day requirements of the Association.

Stay Connected

There are many ways to stay in touch with your School and your friends:

Magazine & Old Scholars’ eNewsletter

All Old Scholars receive copies of the School magazine (Jewell), which contains information about the School as well as news of old scholars. 

Members are emailed a copy of the Old Scholars’ eNewsletter, an online publication specifically for the Old Scholar community. The newsletter can also be accessed through this website.

Please remember to keep your contact details updated to ensure you do not miss out on the latest news.

Old Scholars’ Netball Team

Two Walford Old Scholars' Netball Teams have recently been formed - one which competes in the Adelaide Metropolitan Netball Division, and the other in a social netball league. These groups are re-engaging and reuniting past netball players with the School and each other, and provides team members with an opportunity to enjoy playing netball after completing school.  

If you have a passion for netball, were a past player or supporting member we would love you to join the team, whether you attended Walford or not. If you are interested in being involved, please contact the Marketing and Communications Office on 08 8373 4062 or alumni@walford.asn.au.

Old Scholars’ Chorale

The Old Scholars’ Chorale is a club for anyone who likes to sing in a relaxed setting. Members come together and sing on a regular basis, enjoying a mix of musical genres and levels of choral difficulty. You do not need to be an old scholar to join; some members are former staff or parents who enjoy this connection with Walford. If you enjoy the pleasure of singing, being part of a team, and joining like-minded souls with a link to the Walford community, do not hesitate to join this group!

Scholarships

The Association has always looked for ways to support the Old Scholar community and one such activity has been the establishment of the Old Scholars’ Association scholarship. The scholarship provides financial assistance to an Old Scholar who would otherwise be unable to send her daughter to the school. The award is made to a girl in the Senior School who is outstanding in character and all-round ability. To be eligible, the recipient must be the daughter, or granddaughter of an Old Scholar, provided that the Old Scholar is a financial member of the Old Scholars' Association.  

The award provides for remission of full tuition fees for one year. This scholarship may be shared.

Speech Day Prizes

The Association has always maintained an active interest in the School and annually donates prizes, which are presented at Speech Day. Each year the wonderful achievements of Walford Old Scholars are recognised with Alumni Awards, which are presented on Speech Day.
