Classical Association of NSW


The chief object of the Classical Association New South Wales Inc. is to promote the development of classical studies in New South Wales. The Association was founded in 1909 and conducts a range of activities, including lectures, social functions, workshops and a Latin and Greek reading competition for school students. It sponsors the annual Sydney Latin Summer School and is the co-sponsor of the journal Classicum. From time to time it provides financial and other assistance to various classical causes, activities and publications, such as the Todd lecture series.

We welcome new members to add support to our activities, and in particular the efforts to confirm and strengthen the teaching of classical languages in schools and universities.

The Classical Association of New South Wales now has a Facebook profile.
