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 is an important part of life after Iona, providing a link for past pupils to maintain contact with each other – no matter where they are in the world – and to cherish and enhance the traditions of Iona.


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.
