The Ladies' College Guild Guernsey was founded in 1905 in response to a proposal from Miss Mellish, Principal of the College, that an association of former pupils should be formed.
The Guild has supported the College in many ways since 1905 including contributing to the cost of the changing rooms, a piano, chairs for the hall, Speech Day prizes and the purchase of the playing field(which was handed over to College ownership in 2013. Most recently the Guild donated a large amount towards the A Gift for Learning Phase 3 fundraising project and the Guild Meeting Room is named in honour of this, as well as a classroom named after the Denbigh girls.
The Guild turned 110 years old back in June 2015 and celebrated this milestone at the College on 13th June with a wonderful afternoon tea on the front lawn welcoming back many old girls to view the progress that had been made over the past few years.
The Guild is now free for all of our College leavers to join no matter your age or when you left the College. A simple form is all that is required to be completed, available below. Since 2013, all College leavers are automatically made members of the Guild, unless they choose to opt out. A new electronic database is being developed in conjunction with the College in order to keep in touch with alumnae in a more efficient and up-to-date manner and this will be launched in 2020. Currently Members receive all correspondence regarding Guild news and invitations to events via email (or letter if requested)., You can keep in touch via our Facebook Group page.

UPCOMING EVENTS 2021/2022 :-
A Taste of Italy - Summer wine tasting event
Thursday 10th June 1900 - 2100 (The Green Room)
A College trip to Florence in 1996 sparked a life long love affair with all things Italian for alumna and local business owner, Emily Trebert, who has run her company Vinoteca Limited since September 2020.
Having lived and worked in Italy and developed a keen interest in Italian food and wine, Emily took the opportunity to share her knowledge and passion via her St Peter Port shop, Vinoteca.
At this wine tasting evening, we are invited on a virtual vinous tour of Italy via its grapes and wine; from the sparkling Prosecco of Veneto, to the warm, fruity reds of Sicily on an informal and lively voyage of discovery, whilst enjoying a delicious selection of summer wine and complementary Italian foods.
A perfect way to spend an evening and bring a little bit of Italy back to The Ladies' College.

The Guild's purpose is to network and keep in touch with old girls of the College. If you have a special anniversary year coming up and would like to hold a reunion from your year group please do get in touch.
Of particular interest, is if you are planning 5, 10, 20 or 30 year catch ups with your classmates - tell us about it.
