Primmer House was named after Chairman Dr C J Primmer and was officially opened on 29 of August 1987.
It is a two-storey building situated down the stairs from the Paterson Terrace. With bench seating in cool shaded verandahs, it is a popular meeting place for students.
On the lower floor of Primmer are the two English/SOSE classrooms. The upper floor houses three more general learning areas. Year 8 lockers and shelving are located in this area.
Rockhampton Girls Grammar School is committed to providing a rich, contemporary, challenging education for young women. The Year 4 to 12 personal laptop program is complemented by our wireless network meaning our girls have wireless network access in all teaching spaces. Our Internet access is filtered and monitored 24 hours a day. During the school day our internet filter restricts access to social networking sites and streaming media sites which could act as a distraction.
The Laptop program allows the school to ensure that the required software is available to students, that devices are sufficiently powerful to meet curriculum requirements, that computers are robust and quickly repaired. The laptops remain the property of the School, but are in the full time care of students for their personal use for three years, after which they will be replaced with new models. We have implemented a rolling replacement program which will ensure that all Year 7 and Year 10 students receive new computers to support their next three years of schooling.
