Sapphire Circle Lunch

Sadly, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Sapphire Circle Lunch was unable to be held this year. This lunch is for old grammarians that have left school 50 plus years ago or more. It is a lovely lunch that celebrates these women who have been a part of the rich fabric of 100 years of Camberwell Girls.

We truly value our old grammarians and as a way of showing them that we do care and are thinking of them, we decided to deliver afternoon tea packages to our longtime supporters of this lunch. Inside this package was a delicious morning/afternoon tea of finger sandwiches and sweet tart and fresh fruit prepared by Pinwheel & Co. A memento of the school with a customized CGGS tea towel, some Twinning’s tea and Lindt chocolates along with a card. These packages were hand delivered by CGGS staff to the doors of the old grammarians and were accepted so gratefully, with invitations to come in for a cup of tea, and “please come in and see my paintings”. Many cards and phone call of thanks have been arriving at the school since.

Volunteer Thank You Event

Each year we take the opportunity to recognise the amazing support of our parent and old grammarian volunteer community. Due to COVID19 restrictions, the Volunteer Thank You held on Friday 13 November was an online event where volunteers were sent a hamper of cheese and wine and invited to attend a virtual tasting with the cheese producer from Melbourne and wine producer from Italy.

The evening was enjoyed by all as it was wonderful to learn about the art of cheese making from Giorgio Linguanti from That’s Amore Cheese and travel virtually to Italy, where wine maker Lorenzo from Il Palazzo, Chianti spoke about the process of producing his Chianti and Rosé. The evening was a huge success and there was a great deal of chatter and questions from the guests about the delicious wine and cheese and their next trip to Italy!
