MARK YOUR CALENDARS! Trivia Night is back!

The most popular event on the Parent’s & Friends Association calendar is back for 2019! The PFA Trivia Night! This year, we’re Putting On The Ritz!

With the 2019 theme being Great Gatsby/1920’s, this years Trivia Night is bound to be the most glamorous night of the year, so don’t miss out!

Join us for a night of trivia, raffles, silent auctions, games and prizes!

All money raised on the night from the raffles and silent auctions will go straight back into the school and towards your daughter learning experience here at CGGS! Nights such as this are the perfect way to meet other parents in the CGGS community, whilst having fun and raising money for the school.

Hustle up a table of 8 – 10 party-goers or we can sit you with others from your daughters year level. Get your gang together, grab your feather boa and pearls and join us for a glorious night!

Grand Opening for CGGS Old Grammarians!

On Sunday 2 June, Tempo Rubato was officially opened! Tempo Rubato is a live classical music venue and bar in Brunswick, an initiative of old grammarians Georgina Imberger, Amie Herdman, Cate Robertson and Christine Willshire from the class of 1993.

You may remember these girls from the CGGS International Women’s Day Breakfast, where they were our special guests (see image below). These inspiring old grammarians also started Piano Project, a Melbourne charity that provides piano lessons for children who have recently immigrated to Australia.

Tempo Rubato works in partnership with the Piano Project, all profits from ticket sales, memberships and sales from the bar go towards the great work done at the Piano Project.

The Piano Project’s mission is to help young immigrants settle into Australia at a time when their families are adjusting to cultural changes and finding homes and work. The charity sponsors piano lessons free of charge, with funds raised through classical music recitals at Tempo Rubato. Through the hand of friendship, with music as the channel, the children learn to trust, to believe and to hope that all will be well.

We would like to congratulate these four incredible women on a fantastic opening night and for creating an amazing venue that is dedicated to music, and raising money for a incredible cause. We are proud to call them Camberwell girls!
