We believe it is fundamentally essential to work in partnership with parents to optimise student development and outcomes. We utilise a range of communication tools to connect with parents and students effectively.


The Hive is our primary communication portal for parents and the learning platform for all students from ELC to Year 12 across all campuses. Hive is a centralised point of reference for most school matters for parents, including accessing student reports, statement of fees, updating contact details, viewing the school calendar, student timetables, co-curricular information, and other important matters. In addition, Hive provides parents with access to resources and information related to their child and matters for the whole school community. It is explicitly designed to be the central communication hub for parents, reducing the risk of overlooked emails and a centralised information repository for easy retrieval.

Parents will be provided with a username and password for Hive in the year prior to their child commencing with the school and encouraged to visit the Hive regularly.

Email digests are sent daily at 6pm to notify parents of news, pastoral alerts or grades and feedback released during that day. Families with students across multiple campuses will access student campus pages directly from the Hive dashboard.

Hive can be accessed at: https://hive.ggs.vic.edu.au

Assistance with login details or access issues should be directed to the IT Service Desk at support@ggs.vic.edu.au

Hive app

The Hive app allows key features to be easily accessed from the app home page, including news, sports fixtures and results, notifications and calendar. Notifications can be formatted to suit the individual user.

The Hive app is available free from the iTunes App Store for iPhone and iPad users and Google Play App Store for android phone users, and can be found by searching ‘Geelong Grammar School’.   


The school calendar is available in Hive and via the Hive app. It is regularly updated. Printed school calendars are also distributed at the start of each year.

Class contact lists

Class contact lists are available via Hive, and parents can choose whether they wish for their details to be shared with other families. Please ensure your contact details are kept up to date via the Hive.

Fee Accounts

School fee account enquiries should be directed to the Accounts Department:
Telephone: +61 3 5273 9200
Email: AccountsSupport@ggs.vic.edu.au

Parent-student-teacher conversations

Parent-student-teacher conversations occur mid Term 2 and mid Term 3. The purpose of these conversations is to provide the opportunity to discuss learning progress, approaches to learning, and areas and strategies for improvement and development. Further details are provided by the Head of Learning and Teaching and Head of House and communicated through Hive.

Social media

Geelong Grammar School news for all campuses is regularly posted on the School’s official social media channels.

We encourage you to engage via our GGS social media channels. A simple like or share of a GGS social media post can help connect others to the exceptional opportunities our students enjoy at our School.

Some boarding houses have individual Facebook and Instagram pages which you can request to join through the Head of House, however, these are not administered by the School.
