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 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. The 2024 School Charity is Cancer Council QLD. Whilst the Cancer Council is dedicated to improving the quality of life for people living with cancer, BGGS will focus on Skin Cancer prevention strategies for our community, and volunteering and fundraising to support education and research by Cancer Council QLD.
Service Captains within each of the School’s House Groups choose the following specific organisations to support throughout the year.
|Pyjama Foundation + Adopt a Tiger
|Mercy Without Limits
|Cherish Women's Cancer Foundation
|Mater Foundation, Miracles for Melanoma inspired by Gina Savage (2012)
GECO is a practical club that attends to concerns in our school environment, as well as being involved in national and global conservation issues and improving sustainability practices. Students participate in the Lord Mayor’s Young Environmental Leadership Network projects.
This group maintains the natural environment of three Girls Grammar campuses and supports the Cubberla Witton Catchment Network. The group also works in collaboration with the City Parks Brisbane in neighbouring Victoria Park.
The group was established in 1996 to formalise the School’s commitment to health in the community — both internal and external. Health Promoting Schools are worldwide and an outcome of the Ottawa Charter created by the United Nations. The purpose of the group is to increase awareness of health issues in our society and provide an opportunity for students to organise activities to promote and fundraise for various causes.
