The importance of the Chapel in the life of the School

Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) is a Christian community which upholds the values, traditions and teachings of the Anglican Church. We believe in nurturing and developing the whole person, with spirituality being an integral part of each individual. We welcome students from all faith backgrounds and seek to foster an inclusive spiritual environment where each student is valued as a unique individual and encouraged to discover their true self.

The significance and range of Chapel services for students in the ELC, Junior School and Senior School

The Chapel of the Annunciation is a place of worship, encouragement, learning and exploration. Chapel services provide an opportunity for our communities of faith to celebrate fellowship in Christ. During any given week, there are a range of Chapel services for students, staff and the School community to engage in. Students are regularly engaged in the planning and running of Chapel services throughout the whole school, with students in the Chapel Committees of the Junior and Senior Schools playing a leadership role in this process.
