Miss Wallis met with a group of Old Girls once or twice a year to raise funds for hospitals and infant homes. During The Depression a fund was set up to provide financial assistance for daughters of Old Girls. This tradition of altruism continues with the committee directing funds to AOG Scholarships, Hardship Bursaries and Prizes.

In recognition of the very worthy contribution of our Old Girls, first priority will be given to daughters of Ascham Old Girls enrolled before their first birthday at any formal entry point (Prep, Kindergarten, Year 5 or Year 7). We give equal first priority to boarders and younger siblings of girls already enrolled at Ascham at the time of the proposed commencement date. Second priority is given to daughters of Ascham Old Girls enrolled after their first birthday by date of application received.
The Old Girls’ Honour Board Prize is the oldest continually awarded prize having been established in 1902. For many years this prize was awarded based on a popular vote of the students but since 1956 has always been awarded to the Chair of the School Committee.
