More than 30 years ago, the Rector and Assistant Rector of St. Paul’s Anglican Church, Bankstown began St. Paul’s Choir School in the Church Rectory to train boys to sing the 1662 Book of Common Prayer Anglican Service each Sunday. Later they went into partnership with the Bankstown Uniting Church to begin Bankstown Grammar School. Today St. Paul’s Choir School and Bankstown Grammar School have transformed into Georges River Grammar, a School in the Anglican Tradition.
Our comparative youth as a school has many benefits. We are able to offer varied opportunities to our students through modern facilities and a well-resourced school. We provide individualised programmes to cater for our multicultural and academically diverse students.
We are a caring learning community that values inclusion, compassion and justice.
We strive to:
- develop critical and creative thinkers
- challenge students to develop their sense of inquiry and skills in problem solving
- develop Positive Education as the basis of our Student Wellbeing programmes
- develop state of the art facilities including a 1000 plus seat multi-purpose auditorium in 2017
- consolidate the use of ICT in the classroom through iPads and BYOD technology
- expand open communication between the School and the home
- strengthen our understanding of Servant Leadership through current and new Social Justice initiatives in partnership with charitable organisations and local Indigenous communities
We would be delighted to welcome you and your child to Georges River Grammar to discuss how we can best provide her or him with suitable learning opportunities.
Relationships are key in any human interactions at GRG and so our main objective is to know our students and their academic and wellbeing needs.
We offer a broad critical and creative thinking curriculum to look after the academic and/or vocational needs of everyone so that they become active and participative global citizens.
Our recent excellent HSC results are a mark of the effectiveness of the early steps in this journey.
Georges River Grammar offers a wide range of extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. These include debating, SES cadets, Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award Australia, Mock Trial, Public Speaking and Chess Club.
Students are also encouraged to demonstrate their skills in music and the performing arts through our annual Variety Night.
Identified gifted students are involved in programmes in the Primary and Secondary Schools. In 2017 we begin our first enrichment class in Year 7.
There are also a wide range of sports that students are involved in at school, regional, state and national levels.
