A culture that develops a responsible and happy student who is actively connected to the School and to the wider community is characteristic of The Rockhampton Grammar School.
Students take a proactive and hands-on approach to service under the guidance of teachers, earning respect through achievement.
Children who participate in community service develop respect, resilience and leadership skills – inevitably they gain as much as they give.
Through initiatives such as our Grammar Gives Back programme, students learn to appreciate the value and importance of extending their support and assistance to others.
This call to service has been delivered to numerous charities and organisations in the Rockhampton region, throughout Central Queensland, around the country and internationally.
Whether it is raising funds through a sausage sizzle to support the Cancer Council, donating their time at the local retirement village or travelling to Nepal or Borneo to lend a helping hand in constructing a hospital or meeting hall, our young men and women are striving to make a difference in their community.
They are rewarded in return with a developing strength of character, initiative and leadership skills, courage and integrity.
Among the School's Community partnerships are GrammarGlobal and Reef Guardians programmes.
