Foundation Day

Foundation Day recognises what CCGS means to the whole School community - past, present and future.

It's a day to remember and reflect on how the School began 37 years ago with just 165 students and 35 staff.

Perhaps everyone’s most favourite part of Foundation Day is the infamous coin line whose origins began by placing one and two cent pieces in a line on the school’s first basketball court.

This much-loved tradition still takes place today, with coins now snaking their way from the top of the school stairs and stretching through the playground, not stopping until all the coins have been laid. 

This year we raised $1,982.55 for Save the Children and the line measured 147 metres - that's slightly longer than one and a half football fields. Thank you to everyone for their generosity towards this important cause.
