It was great to have old grammarian Amanda Embury (1979) visit CGGS on Monday this week to speak to the Year 7 Science Classes on the Classification of Primates. Amanda is a Zoologist and is the Manager of the Wildlife Conservation and Science Department at Zoos Victoria. She has a strong focus on the delivery of animal welfare and driving species management initiatives. Amanda works on the breeding program of primates and studies the behaviours of these animals and the longevity of the species. Amanda’s particular interest in primates and her passion for zoology began as a young girl when she first learnt about Jane Goodall, an English primatologist and anthropologist.

At the beginning of Term 3, Year Level Class Representatives welcomed new families to both the Senior School and Ormiston. We look forward to building lasting connections with these families.

The Class Reps are part of the CGGS Parents & Friends Association. Each Class Rep plays an integral role in connecting the school community with parents from ELC3 to Year 12. They kindly volunteer their time to welcome new families to the school, organising parent and student activities and assisting in communicating with parents about CGGS projects and events.

For more information about the Class Reps or the Parents & Friends Association, please contact Susannah Jepson, Community Relationships Coordinator.
