|An atmosphere of support, encouragement and belief in the limitless horizons of the opportunity for its young women pervaded my college days.
For many years there was at least one Grice girl at the College. I was the first of the five Grice sisters educated there so it was very much part of our lives.
The College promoted an atmosphere for young women to develop their full potential. It allowed me to choose law as a career. I was not constrained by the consideration that there were then, few women lawyers, and none that were prominent. The College did that for me and I have tried to promote other young women in the legal profession.
To ensure that the College thrives for present and future generations of young women, I support, and urge you to give generously to the NCG Trust Foundation.

|We cannot underestimate the critical influence schooling has on the lives of each and every one of us. Education is the single most important asset we can give our children. It develops young minds, releases passions, provides direction and equips students with the skills they need for a happy and productive adult life.
Educating secondary students these days is a big challenge for as all. We must rise to that challenge and confront it boldly and successfully.
Nelson College for Girls is an excellent school for young women. It is so exciting to see how well Nelson College For Girls prepares its students for adult life. The demands of a modern society require new teaching methods and facilities and Government funding is insufficient to meet the school's long-term vision and requirements.

|I am very proud to assist Nelson College For Girls prepare for the future and wish them every success with their fundraising programme. My college years were richly rewarding and as I look back over the years I realise they are among my fondest memories.
My mother and my daughters too have all attended Nelson College for Girls, so I really do speak from experience when I say they have prepared three generations of women well for life's challenges. I hope you can join us in this most worthwhile project and help our girls take on the world!
