The students are encouraged to contribute to the local and wider community and volunteering and charity work are an important part of the life of the school. One of the most popular events is the annual ‘Rag Week’ during Term Two which involves students from all year groups and raises substantial funds for our chosen charities.
On Friday 10th May, Chatham Grammar School for Girls turned purple for a day to raise money for The Wisdom Hospice, Rochester.
The event was organised by Personal Tutor Group 10Pt2 and was a great success. Events included a purple themed TAG day, raffle, cake sale and ‘Guess the Teacher’s Baby Photo Quiz’. Mrs Knight kindly donated her marathon money to the cause, taking our grand total up to £4,810. An amazing achievement and a huge thank you to everyone who supported the event.
CGSG Students and Staff Champion World Book Day 2019
The English department celebrated World Book Day this year alongside the rest of CGSG.
Students were encouraged to dress up and come into school as their favourite literary
character; there were some wonderful outfits from students and staff.
Students also participated in bookbased lessons within their English lessons and during Personal Tutoring. English students discussed the benefits of reading; we looked at how front covers can reveal a lot about a book and discussed book recommendations.
Throughout the day we were raising money to donate to both our library and to a charity called Beanstalk which offers one-to-one reading support for children aged between 3-13 years old.
In total we raised £358.52.
