Exploring over 100 years of stories, friendship and adventure this book will take you on an amazing journey. SSAGO's first history book is here!

Between 2017 and 2021 I was the SSAGO Archivist. We now have a lot of information stored in SSAGO’s Google Drive, from published articles to club reports and National Executive committee meeting minutes.  

When I came to the end of my role, I had gained a lot of knowledge about SSAGO’s history. I thought it would be great to share this with everyone, and before I forgot it all!

So, I set out researching the archive, pulling out facts, stories and important milestones. I felt it was important to understand contextual history such as The Scouts and Girlguiding because this impacted SSAGO a lot. I also wanted to explore the changing face of the UK education system; some important milestones impacted SSAGO.

The book covers the periods between 1907 – 2021 including stories from past members, pictures and a rich history of how SSAGO kept itself relevant and necessary.
