Oxford, Cambridge and Harvard Reception 
Generously sponsored by the University of Western Australia, this is an excellent opportunity to socialise with alumni from all three institutions


Oxford Society AGM and Annual Cocktail Event
Held annually for all registered alumni, the Society’s AGM to approve its accounts and to elect the committee is swiftly concluded before a cocktail function.


Swan River Oxford Cambridge Boat Race
Alumni and their guests (spouses, partners, friends, children) are invited to cheer on the Oxford crews, rowing against Cambridge alumni, in the Swan Blues Boat Race. After the race, enjoy a BYO picnic in the spring sunshine on the river bank.

Under the rules, the crews have to be mixed crews and therefore male and female alumni who are interested in rowing in the races are most welcome and are urged to seek further information as to training etc from in the middle of the year.

Venue: Guildford Grammar School


A number of non-regular events, such as guest speakers, and informal CBD drinks, occur throughout the year. Those eligible for membership are encouraged to register for the mailing list if they wish to be kept informed of such events
