CGS Alumni News & Invite to the Gala in the Grounds 90th Anniversary Celebrations

Dear CGS Alumni community,

It has been our pleasure so far this year to catch up with Alumni at our Sydney Reunion, and we are looking forward to seeing more at our Melbourne Reunion this Friday.

We would be pleased if you could join us at the next major event as a part of Canberra Grammar School's 90th anniversary celebrations: Gala in the Grounds.

Gala in the Grounds - an event designed to ensure all members of our community can celebrate across the day - is the major event in the 90th anniversary calendar.

The event will be held on Friday 5 April, and throughout the evening the campus will then come to life for parents, Alumni and community for an adults-only event. Please find more information below about the Gala in the Grounds.

For any enquiries about the CGS Gala in the Grounds, please contact the Alumni Coordinator, Winnie Liu at or on +61 (2) 6260 9606.

We hope to see you there!

Don't want to wait in line for drinks? Purchase a Drinks Package

Tickets are not required for the Gala in the Grounds event, however, we have put together some Drinks Packages that can be pre-purchased to ensure you're not standing around in the drinks queue! You can purchase the Drinks Package at TRYBOOKING.COM/482251

Tour the CGS Campus in Virtual Reality

Canberra Grammar School is also pleased to launch the School's new Virtual Tour, which has been created with the assistance of YouTour.

We hope that this virtual tour will provide our Alumni with the chance to return to our campus, as we know many live out-of-state or overseas and may not have visited our campus recently or in some years.

We also hope that you will also enjoy being able to take a walk through the wonderful grounds of CGS at your leisure, and appreciate it in the way that the students and staff do each day.

You can view the tour by going to CGS.ACT.EDU.AU and clicking the 'Virtual Tour' button on the homepage, or by navigating directly to CGS.YOUTOUR.COM.AU
