CGS Care (out-of-hours & holiday care)
CGS Care is the out of school hours care programme at Canberra Grammar School. Managed by the School, CGS Care incorporates all before school, after school and holiday care programs at the School’s Northside and Southside campuses from Pre-School to Year 6. Children beyond the CGS community are welcome to participate in each of the holiday programmes offered by the School.
Working in partnership with families, CGS Care educators engage children actively in learning providing a combination of indoor and outdoor activities each day. Our children are viewed as being active participants within the care programme, with their input into decisions sought. It is our children’s capacity to initiate and lead learning, and knowledge of their strengths and interests that inform the breadth of learning opportunities on offer.
Through the CGS Care programme our children strengthen their personal and social capabilities: their independence, initiative, confidence, resilience and adaptability flourish. The programme is a very social one and yet those children needing personal space and quiet opportunities for individual play are equally catered for.
For more information, view the CGS Care Information Booklet and the CGS Care Application Form. For specific information on the Term 4 2017 CGS Holiday Care Programme, view the December/January Holiday booklet, the Horizons School Holiday Activities and the Holiday Care Enrolment Form.
The booklet includes details about bookings and fees as well as a programme of events for the School holiday programme. Please note that this booklet includes two holiday programmes – one for the those aged 3 to 7, and one for those aged 8 to 12.
