Rockhampton Girls Grammar School is a learning community where every individual matters. Each member of our School family contributes to sustaining an environment in which individuals actively engage in their learning; where School values are embraced; where mutual and self-respect is paramount; where community and global citizenship is fostered and where excellence in every endeavour is sought and celebrated.
PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT & STUDENT WELLBEING
Students have access to a Care Group Mentor who will work closely mentoring students. The Care Group Mentor will form the main line of communication between the School and home regarding all day school related information, and will assist the student in all areas: Academic progress, friendship issues, work load issues etc. The Boarding staff are the first connection point for students and families regarding any areas of concern in relation to boarding.
Student Wellbeing Program
Students from Prep to Year 12 engage in a range of learning experiences through the care program designed to facilitate social, emotional, and moral development. Student wellbeing will be supported through education in the following key focus areas: understanding the core values of our School, acquiring and fostering positive values, building healthy relationships and interpersonal skills, developing resilience, promoting cybersafety awareness, and development of effective problem solving skills.
