Nurturing a strong sense of community is one of our biggest priorities at Geelong Grammar School. Throughout the year, we endeavour to provide a number of opportunities for our families to connect and experience the joy of being a part of a warm, inclusive community.

Athletics Day

All four school campuses participate in Athletics Day held at Corio in August each year. The day commences with an outdoor chapel service, followed by house events. Food is available for purchase and parents are invited to bring a picnic and stay for the day.

Family Day

Family Day celebrates the Corio community and is a memorable day on the school calendar for families to meet in a relaxed setting. Family Day takes place in Term 1. The day culminates with the John Landy Duathlon, which finishes at the SPACE, where all families can enjoy a delicious afternoon tea with jazz.

Friends of Middle School (parent association)

Established in 1998, the Friends of Middle School (FoMS) plays a vital role as a connection point for all Middle School parents to meet other parents and raise funds to support Middle School programmes and students. The FoMS committee hosts regular meetings during term time and several social gatherings during the year. We warmly invite all parents to be involved in our FoMS.
