IGGS & IJGS Open Day – Saturday, 16th March


Visit Ipswich Girls’ and Junior Grammar School’s 2019 Open Day and take a student-guided tour to see the School in action.

The Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School (girls only, Years 7 to 12), Ipswich Junior Grammar School (co-educational, Prep to Year 6) and the Early Education Centre (Kindy and Pre-Prep) 2019 Open Day offers a full program of events, giving visitors the opportunity to spend time with the School’s expert staff, tour the heritage-listed campus and state-of-the-art facilities, enjoy student performances and learn about the School’s high quality academic and co-curricular opportunities.

The annual Open Day is a highlight on the School calendar, with staff and students alike keen to showcase their school and all it has to offer.

“We are very proud of our school and look forward to Open Day each year as it allows visitors to explore the many opportunities we offer and gives them the opportunity to experience our friendly and inclusive School community first-hand,” said the School’s Principal and CEO, Dr Peter Britton.

A key focus of Ipswich Girls’ and Junior Grammar School is personalised learning, with each student, from Prep to Year 6, having an Individual Academic Learning Plan, crafted from a range of standardised tests and classroom observations that identify areas of strength and areas for improvement.

Bright Sparks, a Junior Grammar signature program, offers students rich E-STEAM (Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) opportunities and allows them to explore and develop skills in digital learning, starting from Pre-Prep.
Chinese Mandarin lessons are embedded within the academic curriculum from Prep while Japanese and German are offered in higher year levels.

Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School aims to provide a personalised, holistic education by expert staff in engaging learning environments to its students, and to ensure that every student is known and feels important.

“Every student is important to us and each student is known by name as well as their individual strengths and challenges – and we inspire them to become confident, well-educated young women,” said Dr Britton.

At IGGS, each student’s academic program is tracked and addressed in her Personalised Academic Action Plan.

Each girl takes an active role in her learning adventure, reviewing her progress, setting goals and deciding how to meet their challenges.

IGGS is also deeply committed to providing the highest quality pastoral care and supporting girls to grow into confident, well-educated young women.

The School also offers flexible boarding options, with Cribb House, the onsite boarding facility also open for tours during Open Day.
