OUR SCHOOL MOTTO

Utilis in Ministerium

Useful in Service​

Our tradition and deep commitment to social justice is an integral part of who we are. It is framed by our School Motto.

Our values are grounded in a Christian worldview.

CGGS began in the hall of St Mark’s Church in Camberwell and this rich heritage and Christian foundation remains vital for the school today.

Our Christian identity offers strong guidance in our care of each other and challenges our students to be of service in the local community and the broader world. School assemblies always include a bible reading, prayer, hymn and reflection. Our school values, along with our tradition of service and social justice are grounded in a Christian worldview.

Our school welcomes students of all faiths.

School Chaplain

Our School Chaplain, Reverend Helen Creed is an ordained minister in the Anglican Church of Australia. She nurtures the Christian life of the school and her door is always open. Students experience the beauty of worship in the Anglican tradition, as well as the refreshment of stillness and prayer through regular assemblies, services in the School Chapel and in St Mark’s Church.

Students have many opportunities to explore faith and spirituality.

Religious Education

Our students explore the stories, traditions, history and wisdom of the Christian tradition, as well as taking part in excursions to other faith communities (Jewish, Sikh, Muslim). 

Baptism & Confirmaiton

Each year there is an opportunity for girls and their families to be baptised and/or confirmed and the Chaplain conducts pastoral services as needed.
