That is the purpose of the CGS Foundation: to transform the future of our School and to open its educational opportunities to as many bright and aspiring young people as possible. As we look towards our centenary, we now ask our entire community t to join us by raising an additional $2m for scholarships and access bursaries over the next few years, so that our School may stand proudly at the forefront of opening access to outstanding education for talented young Australians, regardless of means. Every gift makes a difference in reaching that goal.
