Leadership & Service
At Canberra Grammar School, we prepare our graduates to be internationally minded future leaders.
Within the School, students are given many practical opportunities to develop and exercise their abilities as future leaders.
To further students’ understanding of leadership, the School recently launched an inter-school leadership conference, with guest speakers from political, non-government, academic and sporting backgrounds. These industry leaders speak on topics ranging from developing a successful team, to identifying what future leaders will need to confidently shape the twenty-first century.
Our School Captains, House Captains, Vice-Captains and Year 12 Committee are provided with ongoing leadership development, while the Student Representative Council is elected from all year groups to allow students of different ages to share their thoughts and visions for the life of the School.
Captaincy roles are also administered through the School’s Co-Curricular programme.
Canberra Grammar School seeks to live as a Christian community, which includes a commitment to Community Service and to becoming responsible citizens with a willingness to serve the School and the wider community.
We see Community Service as a life-long opportunity to learn the value of service and helping others.
We ask students to give of their time and energy to the community as a whole, and to a particular organisation of their choice. Staff and students regularly participate in Shave for a Cure and the Red Shield Appeal amongst other worthy charitable causes.
