Our Staff

It is our staff that make The Rockhampton Grammar School different.  They are what make us unique and will help support your child to reach their full potential.  

Teachers make a fundamental difference to the learning outcomes of students.  At RGS our teachers are committed educators and we support them to continue learning and developing throughout their careers.

Our teachers love what they do and it comes through in every aspect of school life at RGS.

"I love the city, the people, the RGS staff and our students..."

“Regularly interacting with young people keeps you mentally young. I really like enlightening young minds and watching that spark of recognition in their eyes when a concept is finally understood and internalised.”

Noel Phillips I IDT Teacher

The many opportunities given to students to enable them to follow their dreams and passions is the reason I love being a teacher at RGS...

“Music has always been my passion and becoming a teacher was my career choice made from an early age. I have been able to combine these and impart my knowledge and skills in the classroom, and at the piano, to the students at RGS. Watching my students grow in confidence and step out of their comfort zones musically, whether it be performing or composing, is such a rewarding experience.”

Rhonda Hite I Head of Music

"We work hard to make sure everyone feels connected to the RGS family..."

“I love seeing students thrive in our environment. They might be a bit hesitant or homesick on arrival, but find their way with increasing confidence and grow into independent, self-assured young men and women. It's a privilege to be part of that.”

Stewart Norford I Director of Boarding

"I love that RGS is a very multi-cultural school..."

“At Prep, we give the children opportunities to be who they want to be. We have many nationalities and I love it when parents come in and they share stories about their home and what they used to do when they were children. These stories enable the other children to learn so much about their culture and learn that even though we’re different on the outside, on the inside our hearts are the same.”

Adair Mehlhose I Prep Teacher

"It continually reaffirms to me that I have the best job in the world..."

I love that I have the opportunity every day to try and provide the next generation of RGS students with the same opportunities I had. Most importantly I love seeing the students striving to do their best every time they represent the School in the famous red and black colours."

Todd Wells I Director of Co-Curricular and Past Student

“I still love seeing students have ‘lightbulb’ moments...”

“After a decade of teaching, I still love seeing students have ‘lightbulb’ moments and watching them achieve beyond what they believed possible. I’m also enjoying being part of the STEAM team at RGS, providing innovative opportunities for students to ignite their passion for science.”

Dr Nikki Kelly I Head of Science

"The best part of my job is working with our students."

I love getting to be part of the lives of the students, staff and parents, and hopefully make a contribution to all the students growing into young men and women of great character and scholarship. Whether it be taking the Jazz Ensemble, in the classroom or watching a match on the sporting field, it is fantastic to see how RGS students bond together and share a special connection that goes well beyond the School gates.”

Dr Phillip Moulds I Headmaster

"I love that all students are valued, supported and given opportunities to be the best people they can be."

"I believe that teaching is one of the most interesting and rewarding experiences you can have. I chose it as my career because I wish to create opportunities for people to experience success and to help children recognise that if they work hard they can achieve their goals, no matter what."

Riley Hunt I Primary Teacher
