2/14th Australian Field Regiment 

In 2007 the school formed a partnership with the 2/14th Australian Field Regiment through the Adopt An Ex-Service Organisation Program, administered by the Shrine of Remembrance. Each year our Year 6 students have opportunities to experience the traditions surrounding commemoration and remembrance, to reflect upon the importance of peace, to develop historical knowledge and understanding, and to form relationships with our veterans and their families. 

Our students and staff in the past have attended the Anniversary of the Bombing of Darwin Commemoration to represent the 2/14th Australian Field Regiment, which had been active in Darwin during the bombing raids. Students took part in the Anzac Day march and the moving service held afterwards at the designated 2/14th Australian Field Regiment tree by the Shrine of Remembrance.

Year 6 students in the past have also helped to conduct the annual Commemorative Service for the 2/14th Australian Field Regiment at the Shrine of Remembrance, which is followed by a brief service at Christ Church South Yarra.  

The relationship between Christ Church Grammar School, the veterans, and their families is special and valued by everyone and in 2017 the school was proud to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the partnership.


Olivia Newton-John Foundation

As part of our ongoing partnership with the Olivia Newton-John Foundation, CCGS will annually part in Olivia’s Walk for Wellness each October.

CCGS alum, Dame Olivia Newton-John established the ONJ Foundation Fund, an independent charity sponsoring global research into plant medicine for cancer.
All funds raised go towards wellness programs that reduce the side effects of cancer treatment and help people with cancer to thrive.

The Chantible Choir also performs at each Walk for Wellness event.
