Connected Community


We wish to thank everybody in the CGGS community who made a donation to the 2022 Annual Appeal. Thanks to your generosity we raised in excess of $180,000 – an amazing community effort!

We are particularly indebted to former student Val Dyke (1962), our generous donation matcher. Val whole-heartedly believes in a CGGS education and her greatest wish is to enable students to receive the same education and opportunities that she did.

We are absolutely delighted to confirm that as a result of the 2022 Annual Appeal, we will be offering two Means-Tested Scholarships in 2023 to students who otherwise could not come to CGGS.

We look forward to providing more details about these scholarships in the new year and launching our 2023 Annual Appeal.

Thank you once again to everybody who contributed to the success of the CGGS 2022 Annual Appeal.
