Defence families winter picnic

Posted 18 June 2021 10:30am

Canberra put on a stunning winter’s day for the Defence Families Picnic on Sunday, 6 June with the lakefront at Yhuuramulum providing the perfect picnic setting. Families sprawled their rugs and baskets across the grass and the children climbed and hid amongst the trees with delight.

Families new and familiar were joined by Principal Anna Owen, with Executive Director (Operations), Ellena Papas, warmly greeting people as they arrived.  It was a relaxed atmosphere where adults and children alike, were able to make new connections, build existing relationships and share stories and experiences.

As the sun shone, families shared in friendly conversation and laughter with Mrs Owen while happily indulging in picnic platters and barbeques.

All who attended, commented on the unique venue that is Yhuuramulum, sitting at the shore of Lake Burley Griffin, and we look forward to hosting another Defence Families event here in the near future.

CGGS Defence Families can download the Team App to ensure they receive notifications relating to Defence events and activities across the Senior and Junior campuses.
