PFA Father’s Day Stall & Breakfast

Over 145 fathers/father figures and daughters attended the Father’s Day Breakfast on Thursday 31 August. It was lovely to hear from PFA Vice-President Terry and his Year 12 daughter Eun Bee; along with Year 6 student Hannah and her father Richard all shared their special memories of each other and meaningful reflections of being involved in the school.

As always, the competition ran high with the annual Father’s Day Challenge competition.  The Junior School soccer competition was won by the Daughters and were awarded the Challenge Cup. The Secondary School basketball competition was won by the Dads and they were awarded the coveted Challenge Cup.

The event had an extra special touch with the PFA volunteers running a Father’s Day gift stall for our students to purchase small gifts for their dads.  The Junior School students had the most enjoyable time selecting gifts for their Father or father figure.

PFA House Drama Pre-show refreshments

The PFA offered pre-show refreshments in the foyer of Barbara Sutton Hall prior to the House Drama competition. PFA parent volunteers were thrilled to chat with guests whilst serving light refreshments. It was a wonderful opportunity for the PFA to connect with the CGGS community, and thanks to all the parents and friends who dropped in to say hello. Congratulations to all students who participated and to Schofield for winning the House Drama competition.

We acknowledged and celebrate the contributions these women have made within their field and community, and it was wonderful to share this evening with students, staff and guests.

All of our honourees will serve as a reminder of the inspiring women connected to the school and we anticipate their profiles will inspire our current students. Their biographies are displayed on a prominent wall at the school for all to view.
