Student News - Term 2 Week 4 2023

Two CGGS teams competed in the RACI Titration Competition at the ANU on Thursday, 11 May. The competition is designed to encourage secondary students who enjoy Chemistry, particularly its practical side, to develop their scientific skills and understanding. While our students didn't place at the event, they enjoyed putting their volumetric analysis skills to the test.

Recently, a group of Biology students visited the National Zoo and Aquarium and were given the opportunity to apply their studies of evolution and genetics to new case studies. While at the zoo students were led on a tour by a zookeeper and were then able to observe and take notes on various animals.

Congratulations to Brigid (Y7) who was crowned the U12 Age Champion at the Junior Nipperette awards for her overall performance for the Pambula Nippers in their 22/23 season.

At the ASC Athletics Carnival, Emilia (Y7) and Annie (Y9) came third overall in the U12 division and U15 division, respectively.

The CGGS Junior School walking group added an extra layer this morning for the 24th National Walk Safely to School Day. Our students chatted about road safety, health and wellbeing and the all-round benefits of walking not just today, but every day.

Congratulations to Grace (Y7) who has been selected for the School Sports ACT U15 Girls Touch Football team.

Robertson House has been fundraising all week for the Sydney Children's Hospital Network. Today, they hosted a Market Day in the Quad at lunchtime and sold a variety of baked goods, fairy bread and a sausage sizzle.

Well done to all the students from the Senior School who volunteered at the Mother's Day Classic last weekend. You were a great support for everyone who attended the event!
