The well-being and development of our students and community are supported by an array of support programmes.
Career development and further studies become increasingly important for students reaching their final years at Canberra Grammar School.
90% OF CANBERRA GRAMMAR SCHOOL GRADUATES CHOOSE TO ATTEND UNIVERSITY AND FURTHER THEIR ACADEMIC EDUCATION.
To prepare them for life beyond the campus, students participate in career days and work experience. Students are also encouraged to make appointments with our Careers Adviser to discuss and implement strategies to achieve goals.

COUNSELLING CAN BE DEVELOPMENTAL, EDUCATIVE AND PROACTIVE, EXTENDING A STUDENT’S ABILITY TO ACHIEVE THEIR MAXIMUM POTENTIAL.
We encourage the CGS community – including students, parents and staff – to access counselling where needed to improve their personal, organisational and learning skills.
The School has a fully operational health centre staffed by registered nurses with doctor visits several times a week. The clinic is available to boarders and day students who become unwell while at the School.
Defence School Mentor Programme
The Defence School Mentor Programme, through the in-school work of the Defence School Mentor, aims to provide practical assistance to Defence families and support the social and emotional wellbeing of Defence students who experience mobility and parental absence. This includes supporting students whose parents have transitioned from the ADF for the duration of their time at the school and may also include reserve members acting in a full-time capacity.
A Defence student is defined as a Primary or Secondary school student who is a dependent of a member of the ADF. The Programme’s objectives include:
Parents can contact the Defence School Mentor to discuss a student’s transition into the School, Defence-related issues that may affect a student (such as parental absence on service), or to obtain information if they are relocating by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
