GIRLS GRAMMAR IS MORE THAN JUST A SCHOOL
An icon of Central Queensland, Rockhampton Girls Grammar School and its unique community has been synonymous with excellence for over 120 years. The School provides Prep to Year 12 girls from all backgrounds access to a caring, safe, yet challenging educational environment, where there is a good balance between academic, cultural and sporting activities.
When your daughter becomes a Girls Grammar Girl she becomes a part of the family. Girls Grammar Girls become more than just classmates, they become sisters forging lifelong friendships. It is impossible to understand what this sisterhood and sense of community really means without experiencing for yourself, the warmth, joy and respect which are the ‘golden heart’ of Girls Grammar.
Girls Grammar’s many years of experience have identified it as a significant and outstanding provider of residential schooling for girls as they grow to womanhood. “Boarding mistresses at Girls Grammar are like surrogate mothers: loving, honest and kind. “They’re always there when you need a friend, but also know when to leave you alone!” (Year 12 Boarder)
The chef skilfully develops and delivers a variety of menus that are delicious, nutritious and cater for special dietary needs. The School Nurse is available for medical consultation at any time during the school day. Transport is provided for boarding students with the School’s buses delivering students to a wide range of cocurricular activities.
Principal Christine Hills said “Each student from Year 4 to 12 is provided with a personal laptop and software to support the school’s interactive learning program. ICT is integrated into all learning areas and Girls Grammar has campus-wide monitored wireless connectivity. School families are increasingly leveraging the power of our IT infrastructure to enable seamless communication between school and home”.
