Old grammarian adjudicates House Dance!

Dr Lisa Ellis has long been a supporter of ‘balance’. As a dancer, it is fundamental, as a human being – essential.

Last week Lisa (2008) returned to CGGS to assist with our House Dance adjudication. Many of our students have been inspired by Lisa’s pursuit of medicine (she is currently training to be a surgeon) whilst maintaining her Dance Prescription academy – a place for aspiring elite dancers to train under the informed guidance of Dr Ellis, who ensures they maintain peak physical and psychological fitness.

Lisa’s presence at our House event was greatly appreciated as she supplied considered feedback to all of the captains, along with her worldly perspective, “You have to upkeep doing the things that you love. Yes, because of balance, but mostly, because it makes you interesting. People want to work with interesting people.”

PFA Welcome Drinks

A fantastic night was had by all who attended the PFA Welcome Evening on Friday 25th March. There was excitement in the air as over 200 parents and staff from junior and senior school were immersed in a street festival themed event where they could finally socialise. Guests were entertained by live music, a roaming magician and hula-a hoop performer and enjoyed a variety of delicious food, cocktails and beverages.

Three very happy guests were the winners of the PFA Lucky Door Prize and received a $250 Red Balloon gift voucher.

The PFA were delighted to provide a great opportunity to unite the school community once again and looks forward to delivering many more events throughout the year.

Junior School Twilight Picnic  

A lovely night was had by all those who attended the JS Welcome Picnic last Friday evening.

It was wonderful to see so many smiling faces and children enjoying free play on the playgrounds and PFA climbing frame, using basketballs and skipping ropes. Children were also entertained by a Balloonologist and Face Painters.

Families enjoyed the food offerings from the PFA BBQ, pre-ordered meals from Pinwheel & Co or BYO picnics and were able to mingle and meet new families.

The PFA is always delighted to support this event and looks forward to bringing more events to the CGGS Community in the coming months.
