She stepped down from the presidency of CGA Athletics in 2019, when she became the first female President of APSOC – the Associated Public Schools Old Collegians Amateur Athletic Association.
Finally we thank outgoing President Mr Andrew Aitken for his tireless work in the areas of strategy, governance and scholarships. His commitment and dedication to the role has resulted in a more efficient, transparent and strategic Association.

The CGA Committee and Office look forward to continuing to strengthen our Association and working with you in the future.
