Community Speaker Series

All members of the Melbourne Grammar School community, including students, parents, staff and Old Melburnians, are invited to attend our Community Speaker Series events, held each term.

The aim of the Series is to promote an understanding of contemporary social issues across our School community.

Each speaker offers a personal story that demonstrates models of leadership, service and innovation that are important to our School. Our speakers have made a difference across a range of areas, from science and technology to Indigenous Reconciliation.
