CGGS has been lucky enough to have a few old grammarians join us over the past few weeks. It has been a delight to welcome the following old grammarians back:

Hinako Fukuda (2011) was back at the school for a short time this term as a private music tutor. Hinako who was School Music Captain in 2011, went on to study a Masters in Music Therapy. She now works as a Music Therapist specialising in early intervention for children and people with mental health issues. It was lovely to have you back at CGGS Hinako.

Maddy Toscano (2010) is pictured below with 2019 Vice Captain, Ellie and our library dog, Ivy. Maddy who has completed her Bachelor Education (Primary) worked in the CGGS Library on a short term contract during Term 2. Welcome back to CGGS Maddy.

Recently the Year 9s continued their special program with two days on Artificial Intelligence as you would have read in the ‘Principal ‘section of this edition of CamNews. This two day event was designed to enable our Year 9 students to explore the exciting world of AI.

Sarah Moss (2013) spoke about AI in her work as an Urban Planner, and her current role as a Property Development Graduate at Lendlease. Sarah spoke eloquently about her time at CGGS and her transition to the Bachelor of Environment at the University of Melbourne. Along the way she participated in study abroad and student exchanges in Amsterdam and San Diego. She told students how important mentoring events were, and the value of networking as she got her first job at such an event! She spoke about the role of AI in the property/construction industry such as innovative 3D modelling software and virtual reality to improve plan-making and community engagement. “There are some really exciting opportunities ahead for future employees” says Sarah.
