There are two major events held each year by the Old Scholars Association.
Old Scholars Dinner
As well as separate reunions that occur from time to time (details of which can be found in the newsletter or on this website), the flagship event for the AHSOSA is the Annual Dinner, held each year, in the middle of the year.
Details on this years event can be found on the Old Scholars Dinner page.
Year level cohorts from as early as the 1920s attend to hear the guest speaker but mainly to catch up with friends and classmates from their school days. Those in attendance sing the school hymn and say the War Cry with great zest. A roll-call also takes place.

The 2020 Old Scholars Dinner will be held on Friday, July 3, 2020 at The Adelaide Pavilion.
On the afternoon of the first Saturday in August, female old scholars ('the old girls') of Adelaide High School meet in the school hall to catch up with old friends and to reflect on their time at the school. The Prefects of 50 years ago are presented to the gathering and they reflect on their experiences.
Current day Prefects are present at this significant public occasion to converse with the ladies present and to serve afternoon tea. This proves to be a significant experience for both groups of people.
All 'old girls' are invited to attend and to join in the celebration that this important tradition represents.
The 2020 Conversazione will be held on Saturday, August 1, 2020.
