The Kambala community is a special one, comprised of former and current students, staff and families, as well as members of the wider community.
There are many opportunities for members of our community to become involved in or remain part of Kambala life.
KAMBALA PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION
The Kambala Parents’ Association supports and serves the School through programs, campaigns and events to:
- raise funds,
- engage the community, and
- provide support to students and staff.
The Association also provides assistance in the School Canteen and Uniform Shop, and fosters community spirit through social events.
Membership to the KPA is automatic for all parents or carers of girls attending Kambala. Many parents have reported a deep sense of satisfaction from their valuable contribution to the School through their involvement in the KPA.

KAMBALA OLD GIRLS’ UNION
The Kambala Old Girls’ Union (KOGU) is the official association for former students who completed part or all of their education at Kambala. All former students are considered Kambala Old Girls (KOG).
Formed in 1896, KOGU aims to engage and support Kambala Old Girls to maintain a meaningful connection with each other and the School. KOGU strives to stay connected to all Old Girls, no matter where in the world they may live.
KOGU has a strong and diverse community of more than 7,000 Old Girls and offers an active portfolio of events and experiences for all ages.
The connection to the Kambala community has been and continues to be very strong for former Kambala students. Current enrolment statistics reveal that former Kambala girls are more likely to send their daughters to Kambala than any other school in the Sydney area.
For any enquiries, please contact the KOG Relations Manager.
On the KOGU website, Old Girls are able to see and register details for events and reunions, share their news, find and reconnect with old friends and become involved in career advice or mentoring.
KAMBALA INDIGENOUS PROGRAM
Kambala’s Indigenous Program’s aim is to offer support for outstanding educational opportunities for young indigenous women. As a School, we cannot and should not turn away from the hardships of entrenched locational disadvantage, no matter how difficult. Through our Indigenous Program, we hold hope that the young women and future generations in their communities will have better opportunities than what is currently available to them. Through the Program, we will provide every young woman the opportunity to shine, to learn to lead as young women of purpose and integrity and to be an inspiration for other young indigenous women.
GIVING TO KAMBALA
The aim of the Kambala Foundation is to support and assist the School Council by encouraging the interest and financial support of past students, parents and friends of the School. This is intended to provide long-term financial independence for Kambala and to further develop Kambala’s outstanding facilities and educational environment.
Funds raised by the Kambala Foundation are applied to many diverse purposes:
- new buildings and facilities
- land acquisition
- refurbishing and maintaining current buildings
- teaching and learning innovation
- extension of sporting and cultural programs
Fundraising is an essential activity requiring parental involvement to support the existence and future of the School. The future development of the School relies largely on monies raised through contributions to the Voluntary Building and Scholarship Funds, as well as major one-off donations.
