As CGS past staff are a valuable part of the alumni community, an idea came about to have the first-ever CGS Past Staff Reunion, inviting all CGS past staff back to the CGS Red Hill campus, which was once a large part of eachindividual’s life.
On Friday 21 October 2016, CGS welcomed back over 80 past staff for a variety of activities, reminding them all of what a typical day at CGS was like. Guests participated in a Chapel service, morning tea with current staff, Senior School assembly and beautiful lunch in the Dining Hall.
The guests came from a range of positions and year groups spanning 50 years of service to Canberra Grammar School. They held a great range of positions such as Teaching staff, Housemasters, HoDs, MiCs, administrative staff and even a past Chaplain.
All aspects of the day were created around acknowledging the important part of the School our staff play, not only at the time they were at CGS but also the impact and legacy they left for future staff and students.
CGS looks forward to hosting another Past Staff Reunion in the coming years.
