Girls Grammar students are encouraged to take judicious, ethical and purposeful action to advocate for a more just world.
Girls adopt responsibilities in the School’s Service Program from Year 7, and are encouraged to become active citizens who engage meaningfully with the community.
By engaging in School service groups, supporting their House or School Charity, or participating in the Year 10 Community Service Program, girls lead initiatives that have positive impact and learn the importance of giving back.
Chosen by the students, the annual School Charity reflects students’ desire to support a cause of particular importance to them. In 2018, the School supports the provision of education to girls, through donations to The Smith Family and The Malala Fund.
Service Leaders within each of the School’s houses choose the following specific organisations to support throughout the year.
|Hirschfeld||Pyjama Foundation The Smith Family|
|Lilley||Melanoma Institute of Australia|
|O'Connor||Timor Children’s Foundation|
|Mackay||White Ribbon Australia|
