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 our centre of worship, encouragement, learning and faith exploration. Chapel services provide an opportunity for people to celebrate faith and fellowship.
During any given week, there are a range of Chapel services for students, staff and the School community. Students engage in the planning and running of Chapel services, playing a leadership role in this process through Serving Teams and Tutor Groups in the Senior School and the Chapel Service Committee in the Junior School.
In the Senior School, our Prayer and Meditation Room is open for the use of students every lunchtime.
