Life Changing

Future-focused Facilities

The Camberwell Girls Grammar School Annual Appeal provides an important avenue to raise funds for the school’s key priorities. This year as part of the CGGS Annual Appeal, we are excited to announce the introduction of two Means-Tested Scholarships.

The Miss Dorothy Hall Scholarship and The Miss Val Dyke Scholarship will enable two students to complete Senior School (Year 7-12) at CGGS. As a member of our community, you know firsthand just how life changing this opportunity is.

Our aim is to realise both scholarships in their entirety this year. With thanks to the generosity of former student, Valerie Dyke (1962), who has pledged to double all scholarship donations (up to the value of $250,000), we believe this can be achieved.

Give the gift of education.

Camberwell Girls Grammar School is committed to providing opportunities to grow and develop the way young women learn and progress the skills needed for their future.

Please help us continue to raise funds to support our Scholarship Funds and Building Program. It is important to build and sustain donations for our Scholarship Funds. We strive to hold each fund in perpetuity – giving a gift of education to young women for a lifetime to come. By continuing to grow our Building Program CGGS is able to develop future-focused facilities for young women.

Together, we will make a CGGS education accessible to two students who would otherwise not have the opportunity to attend our fine school. They will join our vibrant and diverse community and receive an education that encourages lifelong learning. These students will have the opportunity to develop and demonstrate the values, mindsets and skillsets that they require now and in the future.

We invite you to donate to the 2022 Means-Tested Scholarship Fund to assist us in providing this wonderful opportunity for two future CGGS students. Your donation, whatever the size does make a real difference and your generosity will help us reach our goal. Remember, every scholarship donation will be doubled this year meaning a $50 donation will be matched to total $100, a $500 donation will be matched to total $1,000, a $1,500 donation will be matched to total $3,000 and so forth.   

We also welcome donations to our Building Fund to support the development and improvement of facilities. However, donation matching only applies to our Scholarship Fund.

Together, as a community, we can make a difference and we truly hope you will support our 2022 Annual Appeal. Any donation you make will be greatly appreciated and we thank you for your continued support of Camberwell Girls Grammar School.

Stories of giving

We are thankful for the support from each member of our community.

Since its inception the Foundation has run a range of programs, enabling our community to play the very important part of making a difference.

The generous support of our community is central in helping the School develop and create life-changing opportunities for our students. We are thankful to each member of our community – parents, students, old grammarians, current / former staff and friends for contributing to the Foundation.

John Giannicos / Current Parent
I was very happy and indeed privileged to be able to send my daughter to this School. Camberwell Girls is what my daughter needed in terms of extracting the best out of her in an environment where she is not there to make up the numbers. It is very important for all parents to support such an institution, as preparing our daughters for the ever changing world is key.
Nigel Simpson / Past Parent, School Council
To a young person, the world can be complex and a frightening place. Schools need to be safe and nurturing environments that provide students with the skills needed to go out into the world with confidence and purpose. I believe Camberwell Girls manages this difficult balancing act, and it my pleasure to give back in both time and in money.
Melissa Medici / Class of 2015
I am truly grateful for the education I have received – the strong sense of community, the extensive co-curricular activities and the valuable learning experiences that have enabled personal growth. The ‘Year 12 Gift’ allows me to demonstrate my appreciation for these opportunities.
Yvonne Mah / Former Student (1988)
My contribution to Camberwell Girls is about my personal desire to ‘give-back’ and to be a role-model to the young community. The ethos of the School is appealing and in addition to academic achievement, Camberwell Girls also encourages each student to have community awareness and involvement.
Leo and Angela Tse / Current Parents
As current parents, it makes sense to donate to the Foundation… to improve buildings and facilities and to sponsor scholarships. We feel that our small contribution does make a big difference in the life of the School, and we know that a good school makes a big difference in the lives of our daughters.
Grace Lovell / Former Student (1934)
What amazing changes took place when Camberwell Girls and Ormiston merged. Magnificent new buildings appeared and are still being developed. There are facilities available now to give the girls a well-rounded education and these will last for many years to come. I hope my donation towards new buildings continues to further help our students.
