A Message from the Acting Principal
CLICK HERE for a short Youtube clip about the experience of an international student at Girls Grammar.
I warmly welcome you to the Rockhampton Girls Grammar family. Girls Grammar enrolls students from many countries all over the world and prides itself on preparing young women to be global citizens with a capacity for deep intercultural understanding.
Our campus caters for students 5 years old through to the final years of Secondary schooling. Students are able to board on site from Year 6 (11 years of age).
Our programs assist international students to meet tertiary academic entry standards and develop study, language and cultural skills. This ensures a successful and smooth transition to the next phase of their study in a Diploma or Degree course at Universities or Higher Education facilities in Australia or overseas.
To assist international students we offer an orientation program and a full range of support services. Students are supported by the School nurse, the Director of Student Wellbeing, the Director of Learning and an experienced and supportive boarding staff. While academic success is vital, personal wellbeing is just as important to us as we support young women on their journey towards adulthood.
Our international students board with Australian students, many of whom come from properties throughout Central Queensland. We have five boarding houses, which sensitively and appropriately reflect the different requirements of each age group. Boarding provides a ‘home away from home’ and in our boarding house friendships are forged for life.
As one of Australia’s oldest, our School has been providing opportunities for International students for over 100 years. I warmly invite you to discuss how we can help you achieve your dreams.
I greatly look forward to welcoming you to Rockhampton.
As an education provider on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS), we adhere to and comply with the Australian Government ESOS Act 2000 and the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018.
