CGGS Dads Event – the first of many to come!

It was wonderful to welcome so many fathers at the recent CGGS Dads BBQ. Fathers and father-figures came together in a relaxed social setting and enjoyed an evening of delicious food and refreshments while meeting other dads from the school. This was the first event held by the newly formed CGGS Dads Group.

This group is run by CGGS dads for CGGS dads and they have planned at least one event each term for dads, and dads and their daughters.

Old grammarian shares her journey with Year 9 students

As part of their media unit titled “Fake News, Filters, Feeds and Followers”, the Year 9s were fortunate during the week to have Annabelle Lee (2015) visit the school to give them a perspective on these issues.

Annabelle, who is a podcast producer at Shameless Media, gave the students a professional prospective on the media industry and the challenges that come with representation, ethics and bias. She spoke about sensationalist media, gender bias, how to deal with generational divide and working through disagreements on key issues.

Annabelle shared her journey to becoming a podcast producer and journalist, whilst continuing her law degree and gave the students some advice on how to navigate balancing commitments when they finish school.
