While Canberra Grammar School embraces Christian values and the practices of the Anglican Church, many members of the School community come from other Christian and non-Christian traditions. We welcome and value each one for the way in which their different cultures and outlook enrich the life and culture of the School.
Our Christian values as a School provide a foundation for developing a moral perspective and framework of values in our students. Students at Canberra Grammar participate in community service programmes as a part of their education and are encouraged to make positive contributions to the lives of others.
The benefits of living these values are evident through the whole Canberra Grammar School community.
Students, staff and parents work together in many activities, programmes and events and enjoy the life and support of a strong community.
Parents receive many opportunities to participate in the life of the School and in parent associations. The home-school partnership is an important contributor to each student’s success.
Canberra is a beautiful, modern city—close to Sydney, beaches and snowfields—with a reputation for safety and a clean, healthy lifestyle. It’s big enough to think like a city, but small enough to behave as a community. As the Federal seat of Government, it is home to the Australian Parliament and High Court, and Australia’s resident diplomatic community. Students in Canberra have easy access to Australia’s great national libraries, galleries and museums. Some of Australia’s finest universities are here, including the Australian National University.
The School uses its position in the national capital to draw political and business leaders, visiting dignitaries, authors and artists-in-residence to the School to lecture, discuss and debate issues of global and national significance. Canberrans are proud of their city, of its rugby and basketball teams, its cycling, bush walking, athletic and water sports’ facilities, its festivals and celebrations.
Visitors are always welcome at Canberra Grammar School and we look forward to meeting you and your family.
