BACK-TO-BURG ALUMNI WEEKEND - 30 August - 1 September 2019


Principal Sally Renouf is delighted to invite you to Burgmann College's 'Back-to-Burg' Alumni Weekend, 30 August - 1 September 2019. The Back-to-Burg weekend is an opportunity for alumni to revisit the College, reconnect with Burgie friends, and for those of you who called Homer and Barassi wings home, marvel at the longevity of the tardis.  

Unable to join us this time in Canberra? Don't worry! In the lead up to our 50th Celebration in 2021, we look forward to sharing regular newsletters, as well as setting up opportunities across Australia and overseas for Burgies to get together in 2019 and beyond.

Spread the word! To help us spread the word and reconnect as many Burgies as possible, please share this news with as many fellow Burgies as you can and encourage fellow alumni to update your details. Don't forget you can keep up to date with what is happening at the College via our website and alumni Facebook page. This weekend is part of a renewed commitment from the Principal of Burgmann College, an alumna of the College herself, to reconnect with alumni. We hope that you might be able to join us in Canberra this year.

Burgmann College's 45th Anniversary Celebration in 2016

Please click on the YouTube video clip to see highlights from the 45th Anniversary Celebration that was held on Saturday, 3 September 2016.

The College was proud to recognize the outstanding contribution of Ms Judith Middlebrook to Burgmann College and we formally recognized her as an Honorary Fellow of the College.

We were honoured to host the world-premiere of the song cycle, Love, the Rover, as well. Commissioned by previous Principal, Dr Philip Dutton, on behalf of the College, Dr Bradley Kunda composed the song cycle which featured poetry by Henry Lawson.  We loved the performance of the piece by Bradley Kunda and Rebecca MacCallion, soprano.
