Message from the Headmaster

As a lasting memento and reminder of your years at Girton Grammar School, a ‘class ring’ is available for purchase for all departing Year 12 students.

The ring has been designed by previous students who were keen to take with them a timeless symbol of their time at Girton.

With a rich sense of tradition that only history can bestow, Girton Grammar School has a distinctive character, and for everyone associated with it, a genuine sense of unity. This class ring is a unique way of capturing some of the sense of tradition and friendship nurtured at this fine school.

Purchase of the class ring is entirely voluntary. If you do choose to purchase one, wear it with pride as an Old Girtonian and as a reminder of the steadfast values that will support you wherever you go.

Matthew F. Maruff, Headmaster


About the Girton Grammar Rings

The GIRTON signet rings, feature a fully detailed 3 dimensional accurate representation of the GIRTON GRAMMAR SCHOOL BENDIGO crest, set in your choice of a round or square shaped ring.

The crest is raised up from the background of the ring face, and around the bezel. The words “GIRTON 1884” is featured in the raised cut style round ring. On the square signet, the name of the school is engraved in the surrounding “cushion”, which forms a perimeter around the raised cut crest. This prominent lettering style, and superbly accurate detail in the school crest, make these beautiful rings standout, as the most distinctive and unique student, graduate and alumni rings available in Australia.

The GIRTON stone rings, are a fabulous story-telling ring. On every face of the ring, part of the students scholastic achievement or other school involvement can be reflected. Around the stone is the school name. On one side, the school crest is prominently raised-cut and deep etched for clarity and pride. Above the crest, is the “House” name, of which you were a long-standing and proud member.

On the other side, you can choose from 70 different “activity” panels, to reflect your most enjoyable or important scholastic participation. Above this, your graduation year date, is emblazoned.

In addition, you have a choice of stone colour, which can be chosen from the 6 house colours of GIRTON GRAMMAR SCHOOL BENDIGO. You may choose the Ruby stone instead, which represents the school colour. Also available, on these magnificent rings, is the opportunity for up to 22 letters to be engraved inside the ring, for the final personalizing of their ring.

The rings also feature an “antique” background on the ring top, which creates a wonderful outline from which the school crest stands out proudly.
