'EGGS Alley

Let us guide you Let us guide you

Korowa's archway entrance to the School from Dorrington Avenue was constructed in 1934.

Since then thousands of Korowa students have walked along the passage leading from it into the School.

The archway entrance and passageway was nicknamed 'Eggs Alley' by the girls as the Korowa CEGGS sign for the Church of England Girls' Grammar was often mysteriously missing its 'C'.

Today, the archway entrance predominantly welcomes Junior School students each morning and sees them off each afternoon.
