Dear Parents and Guardians,

Our girls and staff returned from holidays very excited to explore and settle into our new Year 7 and 8 Building. Big, bright beautiful classrooms and open spaces, large window seats, an internal green wall, writable walls, new lockers and a new Senior School reception including Health Centre, have all proven to be a great hit with girls.

I am also delighted to let you know that the CGGS Council has agreed to name our new building the Anne Feehan Building. As Principal of Camberwell Girls Grammar School from 2001 to 2014, Anne was instrumental in establishing a number of innovative curriculum programs, major building projects including the new Ormiston Campus and the Woodstock Building as well as establishing the integration of the Cisco Technology Network to enable more collaborative engagement in programs. She had a vision for the future preparation of students and the design of this new building was also a key part of her legacy. As we are still completing our courtyard and the refurbishment of some adjacent classrooms we are planning to formally open the building later in Term 3.

At Camberwell Girls we are committed to providing the best learning opportunities for students and catering for individual needs both academically and pastorally. We recognise that each child learns differently, requiring the tools and confidence to realise her own capability. During the last 12 months we have been evaluating a number of our programs that support and extend student learning across the whole school through our Learning Support Department. This year we have established a more extensive program, renamed the Learning Enrichment Program that caters for a wide range of student abilities.

Girls may be referred to these programs by their teachers or parents. Once a referral is made, a member of the Learning Enrichment Department will organise a meeting with the girl and her parents. For further information on these programs, please email: our Head of Learning Enrichment, Ms Sacha Sereda (SeredaS@cggs.vic.edu.au) Deputy Principal/Head of Senior School, Mrs Cathy Poyser (poyserc@cggs.vic.edu.au) or Head of Junior School, Mr Paul Donohue (donohuep@cggs.vic.edu.au).

In addition to these Learning Enrichment programs, many departments offer girls the opportunities to participate in competitions and forums to extend their learning experiences. We also have a wide range of co-curricular clubs and activities that the girls can join and lists of these are located in SEQTA, where you can log in, click on ‘Documents’ in the left-hand column, scroll to ‘Co-Curricular Activities’ and click on the document name as required.

It has been very exciting to see the development of so many new curricular and co-curricular programs at Camberwell Girls as we focus on programs that will build our girls skills, confidence, ability to think creatively and to innovate, preparing them for their futures.

With best wishes,

Debbie Dunwoody
