GBC Newsletter

Welcome to the first newsletter of 2020.

A special welcome to all of our new and existing families – we are so glad that you are part of the GBC community!

We have had an amazing start and it is fantastic to see so many happy kids bringing life to the College. Like always, I am proud to see our inclusive, nurturing community, making new students feel part of things from day 1.

I would like to introduce our new staff members, which you will have opportunity to meet, if you haven’t already, on Thursday evening at our Welcome BBQ (Thursday 13 February 2020 at 5:30pm).
