Supporting the School

The Chilton Old Girls’ Association (COGA) is actively involved in supporting current school life a number of ways:

Each year we gift each Year 13 (Form 7) girl with an inspirational booklet “Possumus we are able – Words of Wisdom for Chilton Saint James School Leavers”. The booklet includes insightful quotations from most of Chilton’s Principals, the words of the School Hymn, prayer, and other special songs, and also a selection of inspiring quotes from history and around the world.

COGA contribute towards the Year 13 leavers’ bibles, we provide books each year for the library and student prizes including Junior School speech awards. We support the Chilton Golf Tournament and other school events.

COGA Spirit of Adventure Scholarship: we award a scholarship, each year, to a Year 12 student to attend the Spirit of Adventure 10 day Development Voyage.
