Student Care & Development
PASTORAL CARE & HOUSES
Canberra Grammar School provides a comprehensive range of services and resources to support students and their families. Effective care must be linked with considered and wise discipline; our policies seek to enhance positive human relations, and provide boundaries and direction for our students as they develop and advance through the School.
These include the:
- House and tutorial system
- School Counsellors; and
- Teaching and Learning Development Department.
It is our goal that each student feels a sense of belonging to the School community, and has the opportunity and support for personal, social, academic and spiritual growth.
At Canberra Grammar School, we treat each individual student with care and consideration. We believe children need an environment that encourages them to seek out academics and social relationships, to find their passions and purpose in a complex world.
Canberra Grammar School has a proud tradition of academic success, with 90% of our students choosing to attend university and further their education.
Our students are encouraged to develop critical-thinking capacities to have the confidence to lead, and to find creative solutions in a complex world.
EDUCATION FOR A GLOBAL FUTURE
The curriculum at Canberra Grammar School prepares young people to face the challenges of a globalising world.
We focus on an educational experience that values the arts and sciences, and believe young people should cultivate a sense of responsibility to act judiciously and be of service to others. There is a focus on excellence, while also recognising that learning, at all levels of ability, should be celebrated and supported.
The School provides a responsive environment to all students, including those needing additional assistance and those with exceptional abilities.
Canberra Grammar School graduates are internationally minded and technologically adept, ready to become future leaders both regionally and globally.
ACADEMIC CONFERENCES AND PARENT COMMUNICATION
The School encourages our senior students to become self-directed learners, working with their teachers to set learning goals. Parents and students are invited to participate in Academic Conferences with teachers to review academic progress, allowing the opportunity to plan and implement strategies to assist in achieving these goals.
