Members of City Branch believe in tertiary education for women, lifelong learning, peace, justice and equality for all.
The Branch’s purpose has been to promote and encourage the education of women through awards, scholarships and active participation in AFGW. Many City Branch members have been and are AFGW NSW Executives.
While the Branch no longer has formal meetings, it continues to support AFGW NSW events and sustains several awards through several Sydney TAFEs.
Although members do not pay a branch subscription, there is an expectation that a donation of $100 is given to support the branch scholarship fund.
Most of all the City Branch is a committed group of women who believe strongly in the ideal and ethos of the AFGW-NSW movement. The members wish to see AFGW-NSW gather in strength so as to continue its work of encouraging female students of all abilities to make the most of their chances.
In line with our philosophy to encourage the pursuit of higher education of female students, scholarships are awarded to TAFE students undergoing the Tertiary Preparation Certificate. This course provides opportunity to those who have not followed the Higher School Certificate pathway to gain entry to university.
The colleges whose students receive the awards are chosen by the members. The recipients of the awards are at the discretion of the lecturers.
City Branch also supports the AFGW-NSW National Council of Women Australia Day Award and Project for Action.
