Students learning for life
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.
