Grammar Girls Give Back

There was no shortage of creative team names among the Girls Grammar Steptember teams this year. This is the eighth year BGGS has supported the Cerebral Palsy Alliance by counting our steps and fundraising to help children and adults living with cerebral palsy to live full, inclusive and independent lives.

Together our teams raised $13082. While the fundraising efforts of everyone are appreciated, special acknowledgement is made to Emily Clayton (9L) (Agony Of De Feet), Sophia McKinnon (10L) and Sophie Lennon (10L) (Step your goals don’t drive) and Luana Scott-Thompson (7H) (The Stepandas), who were the School’s top fundraisers. Thank you to all who contributed to this magnificent fundraising total.

Term 4 Service Activities
Year 8 and 9 House Groups will continue to fundraise for their World Vision sponsor children, Sumaya and Peterson. Students will also determine how they will contribute any surplus funds to the World Vision Gift Program.

Eco Day activities scheduled to be held on the Pool Lawn on Friday 30 October will encourage students to consider ways to reduce, reuse and recycle. On Saturday 31 October from 2 pm to 4 pm, Grammar Goes Green will be held at the School’s Rangakarra Campus, and all students are welcome to attend. Please sign on via Minerva from next week.

The Kirsten Jack Memorial Leukaemia Committee will host Bandanna Day on Friday 23 October and the Second Chance Committee will run their Annual Christmas Giving Tree in the Elizabeth Jameson Research Learning Centre later this term.
