This week we waved goodbye to our Year 13 students as they go on study leave, we wish them
the best of luck with their examinations and for the future. The young women of EGGS will
look back on their time at the school with fond memories. Goodbyes also call for reunions
and the Centenary Celebrations will provide the perfect opportunity to reconnect with former
classmates, friends and teachers. We look forward to seeing many familiar faces in April 2017.

You, the EGGS community, are an important part of the schools history so come and join us
