Dear Parents,

Having reached the end of Term 2, I would like to thank you for your support and encouragement during the term – one that has been significant for us as a school community, as a country and as a global community.

In my editorial last week, you will have seen a video I included that was a more detailed reflection of our term, and of our growth and development moving forward.

Last week we also held our first Virtual Open Morning that was a mixture of real time interaction as well as pre-recorded components. We have received very good feedback and we will continue to develop this model in addition to the format of our previous Open Mornings.

During the Open Morning presentation, one of our CGGS Vice Captains, Laurya Dang-Nguyen, spoke about her experience at CGGS from Year 7. It was a very heartfelt presentation and I wanted share it with you as it reflects the importance of relationships in our community. Please click on the button below to watch Laurya’s presentation.

To enable us to continue to update parents on school news, activities and events during Term 3, CamNews will return to a fortnightly publication and the current Junior School and Senior School Weekly’s will continue each week.

As we enter the school holidays, an important time for relaxation and renewal as well as a time to prepare for the term ahead, Revd Creed has shared a prayer with us.


Holy God, 

Grant us the child-like trust that we live enfolded in your goodness;

that in every event, every encounter – no matter how disappointing or frustrating or exhausting it may be to us,

You are there: protecting, welcoming, cherishing, refreshing and leading us to you.


We give thanks for the communities in which we work and live and learn;

for the Camberwell Girls community, for each member, so precious in your sight;

May we continue to learn how best to care for each other,

and may we know the joy of our connectedness: past, present and future.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord.  Amen


Wishing you a happy and safe break. We look forward to welcoming you back on Wednesday 15 July.


With best wishes

Debbie Dunwoody
