IONA OLD GIRLS’ ASSOCIATION

Being an Iona Girl doesn’t stop at graduation.

We take enormous pride in the achievements of Iona’s Old Girls as they make their mark in every walk of life – across the length and breadth of New Zealand – and well beyond.​​​​​​​

Iona girls remain steadfastly connected to their school and their many Iona sisters.


The Iona Old Girls' Association (IOGA) cherishes and enhances the rich heritage, traditions, and Special Character that is unique to Iona College. The IOGA promotes all interests of the College and plans events and communications to foster lifelong connectedness between the College and Old Girls - no matter where they are in the world.

The Association seeks the cooperation of Alumni to provide role models and mentors, and champions the advancement of education and the enrichment of experiences for the best outcomes of the students.  

The Iona Old Girls' Association embraces and embodies the vision of the Iona College Founders’ and their motto, Love, Joy, Peace - those fruits of the spirit listed in Galatian’s 5:22. 

Membership

The Association aims to reach out to an increasing number of our Old Girls and increase our membership network. We encourage our graduate students to become Life Members. We also encourage branches who haven’t met for a while to hold a gathering of some kind. We will also be encouraging members, where there isn’t a branch, to endeavour to start one.

On joining the Association you are presented with an IOGA badge, and will receive our annual newsletter and other relevant IOGA information, e.g. upcoming events.

Please send us any news of yourself or other Old Girls that you would like included in the newsletter, e.g. births, marriages, deaths, what you are doing and your family news. We look forward to hearing from you.
