Nurturing the next generation of brave-hearted leaders

The balance of completing your final years at high school and being a senior list player for the ACT Brumbies Super W sounds almost like an impossible juggle. However, Canberra Girls Grammar student, Grace Kemp balances both with extraordinary ease.

Image courtesy of Jamila Toderas, The Canberra Times via CGGS Hailing from Murrumburrah, NSW, Grace started at CGGS as a boarder on a Scholarship in 2018. Balancing Year 12 and also a flourishing sporting career, Grace’s dreams have already begun to materialise. A rugby fan from a young age, Grace’s talent has already seen her represent the state at the age of 17. "It means so much to me, I used to come over and watch the men play with my dad and brothers, and it's just amazing to be able to run out in this jersey and represent the state," Kemp said. CGGS has a long and proud tradition of providing education opportunities for regional students and will continue to do so with the launch of the 2021 CGGS Scholarship & Bursary Program. The CGGS Scholarship and Bursary Program aims to support young women in their educational opportunities and honour and grow their achievements across a . ‘I feel very strongly that girls from regional, rural and remote areas should be given the same opportunities as their brothers to leverage their natural talents and to access a first class education’. To open up a conversation with regional families and provide more information about the CGGS Scholarship & Bursary program, CGGS Principal Anna Owen will be visiting a number of regional towns in the SE NSW throughout August and September looking forward to meeting families who are considering CGGS for their daughters education and members of our current CGGS community in the region. A recipient of the Gabriel Boarding Scholarship, Grace’s education, sporting and social opportunities are nurtured while living away from home. CGGS is proud to provide young women across ACT and NSW an education experience that will support their futures, while being away from home.
