5. IT and Food Technology Centre

On 19 February 1998, the IT and Food Science Centre was opened along with the Drama Centre and the official naming of the Senior School’s Hargrave Oval.

In order to keep up with the rapid advances in technology, the IT Centre is constantly evolving and students are encouraged to pursue ideas and careers that might not have been available to them in earlier days of the school.

The centre has three separate computer labs with a central ‘innovation space’ which was realised in 2016 thanks to the generous support of the CGGS Parents and Friends Association. This area, which incorporates state-of-the-art 3D printers, provides students with exciting opportunities to make use of their technology skills and creativity in delivering both curriculum based and personal projects.

Students studying Information Technology have embraced the ICT Centre and its facilities to work on projects which bring together emerging technologies to create innovative solutions to existing problems, such as creating 3D printed prosthetic arms to informative applications.

The northern most corner of the building is a dedicated to the Food Science Centre. Prior to its opening, students made use of multi-purpose classrooms which only offered basic kitchen facilities. The centre is used by students studying food science subjects along with those learning languages. Having access to the more extensive facility gives students the chance to explore different cultures and their foods through cooking.
