Students performing dance

The co-curricular program is an integral part of the educational experience at Canberra Girls Grammar School (CGGS) and includes all activities that support, enhance or complement the formal academic curriculum.

It is based on the philosophy that personal growth occurs when students and staff can access a broad range of experiences. Success in future studies, employment and life itself can result for those who have a balanced approach to work and broader social commitments and who have developed their capacity to work effectively with others.

Our program offers each student the opportunity to explore and cultivate their passions and interests, to be inspired to discover their own potential, to showcase their talents and develop leadership, self-esteem and pride.

Our program offers teachers, parents and volunteers the opportunity to build relationships, to enhance connectedness with our students and to further develop their own personal and professional journey.
