The CGA has a number of awards which recognise outstanding alumni in our community.
Fellowship is the highest honour the Association can bestow. It recognises outstanding service to the School or the Association for 25 years (or such lesser period as the Committee may decide in special circumstances). Individuals cannot nominate themselves and the nomination must be seconded. Fellowships, which include the presentation of a certificate and tie/scarf, are traditionally awarded at the annual Founder’s Day Dinner. See a full list of our CGA Fellows here.
The Don Wirth Medal
Established in 2016, this award is a tremendous way for the CGA to pay tribute to a much loved and respected member of the Caulfield Grammar School community, while also acknowledging the exceptional contributions of our alumni. The Don Wirth Medal recognises outstanding service amongst the CGA community over a minimum 10-year period. Individuals must be nominated by another Grammarian and cannot nominate themselves. All nominations will be reviewed by the Awards Sub-Committee with their recommendations being presented to the full CGA Committee. Don Wirth Medal medals are awarded at the CGA Founder’s Day Dinner or, if the recipient is unable to attend, at an appropriate CGA function during the year.
Congratulations to Scott Williams, Brian Frost, Richard Harris and Robyn Varney who have all received a Don Wirth Medal for their outstanding service.
Affiliate Service Awards
Our Affiliate Service Awards are designed to recognise those alumni that have consistently served one of our affiliate groups such as the cricket team or grammarian singers. Their service should be significant, voluntary and consistent throughout the year of nomination/respective season. Nominations should be made by a senior member or leader of the club. These awards are traditionally presented at the CGA’s annual Christmas Party in December.
