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.
