Made possible by an extraordinary gift of $20 million from Mr Terry Snow AM, in the coming months, the School will begin construction of a new auditorium, music department, and centre for reading, research and learning at the very heart of our campus. The project is a powerful expression of our School’s holistic tradition, and it underpins our core aspiration to educate students who are curious, creative, confident and compassionate young citizens of the world.
Absolutely delighted for @CanberraGrammar Chair, Stephen Byron AM. Few will ever know the time, wisdom, care & support he gives to the good of our School & community. A great champion of CBR & CGS. Sincerest congratulations, gratitude & admiration. canberratimes.com.au/story/70…
There were plenty of friendly new faces today, as we welcomed new staff to the Canberra Grammar School community.
Excitement for the new school year is starting to build and we can’t wait until our halls are once again filled with the bustling noise of learning and fun. pic.twitter.com/Zd9k0LMKBH

This beautiful artwork always catches the eye.
It was painted by Blak Douglas, a Dunghatti artist known for his engaging paintings.
This work reflects the beauty of Canberra's natural landscape, as well as it's modern history. pic.twitter.com/H89aHP67qp
When completed, the auditorium will seat more than 1300 people, it will house the music department and have enough stage space for an entire orchestra.
So far, around 20 thousand tonnes of earth has been removed, with 85% of earthworks now completed.
The team was lucky enough to get a behind-the-scenes look at the progress of the Terry Snow Auditorium construction earlier this month.
The Auditorium is the biggest capital works project the School has ever undertaken and is due to be finished in 2022. pic.twitter.com/PFmdnCWRPp
