Class of 2018 – 1 Year Reunion

It was great to see so many girls from the Class of 2018  back at the school last Thursday to get together to celebrate their milestone 1 year reunion. The Fig Tree Café was full of enthusiasm, laughter and excitement as the former students came together to catch up on what everyone has been doing since leaving school almost a year ago. Many staff members joined the group to catch up on the past year and the variety of paths the former students are now on. These old grammarians are studying, Biomedicine, Commerce, Nursing, Global Studies, International Relations, Interior Design and Acting, just to name a few.

We thank look forward to seeing the Class of 2018 again next year, as they help us celebrate our 100thBirthday.

CGGS celebrates another year of amazing parent volunteers!!

As the Community Relationships Coordinator, I enjoy working with amazing CGGS parent volunteers every day. It is the wonderful commitment of our volunteer Class Reps, PFA members and other parents that builds a strong community in which our parents and students feel connected.

I would like to thank every parent who supported the school this year and wish you and your families a Merry Christmas and a safe and enjoyable summer break.

I look forward to celebrating the school’s centenary year in 2020 with you all.

Community Relationships Coordinator

 

2020 Celebrations 

In 2020 our school will celebrate 100 years of educating tomorrow’s woman. We have an exciting year of events and celebrations planned that reflect this vision, and we very much look forward to welcoming our community to share in these celebrations at CGGS throughout the year.

Our celebrations begin with a whole of school commencement ceremony on 11 February 2020, from 10.30am, where the Governor, The Hon Linda Dessau AC, will join us for this momentous occasion. This date recognises and acknowledges the first day of Camberwell Girls Grammar School when eight students began their education in St Mark’s Church Hall on Wednesday 11 February 1920.

You can find out more about this event, and all our other events and celebrations, in the next edition of CamLife, that will be published in mid-December.
