Alphington Grammar School is unique in Melbourne’s educational landscape.
Situated on 3 hectares of attractive parkland abutting Darebin Creek, just 7 kilometres from the CBD, Alphington Grammar School has been designed from its inception to be academically strong, non-denominational and to embrace teaching excellence and cultural diversity.
Alphington Grammar School is accessible by public transport, major commuter corridors and within easy reach of inner, eastern and northern suburbs. The school also has a number of private bus services throughout the suburbs that bring students to our school. Alphington Grammar School also boasts an abundance of open space, shaded by native fauna and flora and mature landscape making it an idyllic learning environment.
Today we are proudly a co-educational Pre-Prep to Year 12 school managed by an independent School Council. Our community encompasses some 30 ethnic backgrounds representing a remarkable blend of cultures and beliefs. Together, we have fostered a wonderful sense of openness and caring.
“In Pursuit of Excellence”
Shoumyaa Thanaskanda has been a student at AGS since she was in Prep, and in that time she has impressed all of us not only by her striving for academic excellence but by her enthusiastic contribution to all aspects of school life whether in debating, sports, music or leadership She was one of our two School Captains last year, was appointed the Valedictorian Speaker at the Year 12 Graduation Dinner and also became the school’s Dux when the final results were released.
It’s with great pleasure that we can let the school community know that Shoumyaa has gained yet another honour. She has been selected as one of the 500 outstanding students nationwide by the Hon Christopher Pyne, Minister for Education. This award is the Australian Student Prize and presented in recognition of academic excellence and achievement. Shoumyaa will be presented with a certificate and $2000 prize money. Our congratulations go to her, a most worthy recipient.
