Students learn­ing for life

Central and North Burnett Times - - SCHOOL ENROLMENTS -

ROCK­HAMP­TON Girls’ Gram­mar is one of the lead­ing schools for young women in Cen­tral Queens­land.

Founded in 1892, the school was es­tab­lished with a strong fo­cus on Learn­ing for Life.

This motto, a phrase coined by He­len E Downs, the first head­mistress of the school, re­mains rel­e­vant to­day in the school’s 120th year.

Board­ers are ac­cepted from Year 6–12 and the ac­com­mo­da­tion is sec­ond to none. Years 6–10 have the op­tion of shared ac­com­moda- tion while Years 11–12 have sin­gle.

The well­be­ing of your daugh­ter is as­sured with a school nurse and week­end ac­tiv­i­ties are or­gan­ised with trans­port pro­vided.

Small class sizes en­sure a healthy stu­dent-teacher re­la­tion­ship.

Girls Gram­mar prides it­self on valu­ing and pro­mot­ing women through a full range of aca­demic, sport­ing and co-cur­ric­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties.

The school has a strong fo­cus on gen­der spe­cific teach­ing meth­ods, which pro­mote self-di­rected learn- ing and self-es­teem.

The school places a strong em­pha­sis on tech­nol­ogy with lap­tops is­sued to all students in Years 4–12.

This en­ables each stu­dent to be­come a con­fi­dent user of in­for­ma­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies.

Girls Gram­mar of­fers a car­ing and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment fo­cus­ing on pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to both meet the in­di­vid­ual needs and ex­tend the as­pi­ra­tions of each stu­dent.
