Exciting Announcement!

The school is pleased to announce a partnership with an amazing organisation called The Fathering Project. This project delivers resources, programs and events specific to the engagement style and needs of fathers and father-figures.

One of the in-school programs they offer support for is a Dad’s Group program.

The Parents and Friends Association is excited to introduce a new parent sub-group known as The CGGS Dad’s Group.

This parent group is run by CGGS dads for CGGS dads, with the aim of engaging fathers and father-figures within the school community, with other dads, and also with their daughters.

In 2021, The CGGS Dad’s Group will hold social events where dads can gather, share, learn and network with each other. They also have planned activities and events for the community in which dads and daughters can participate together.

We are excited to announce that the first CGGS Dad’s Group event is scheduled for Thursday 11 March 2021. We encourage all CGGS fathers and father-figures to put this date in your diary with more details to come in the new year.

Here you will find research based resources with tips on communicating with daughters, a Fathering Video Channel with an insightful series about parenting and life skill topics and information about the positive impact of a Dad’s Groups in schools has on the dads, the children and the school community.
