Honouring Inspirational Women

During 2020, the school will be launching a new program to honour the inspiring women of Camberwell Girls Grammar School.

This program will provide an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the outstanding contributions made by women connected to CGGS since its inception.

Subsequent celebrations will be held following 2020 as we envisage this becoming an annual tradition.

These inspiring women will be honoured at a special ceremony and will serve as strong role models for current students. In addition, the recipients will have their profile hung in a prominent position in the school.

Nominations for 2020 close on Friday 27 September 2019.
