At Ipswich Girls’ Grammar School the co-curricular program complements the academic program to extend the individual capacities and talents of each girl.
They have been planned to engage a variety of interests – sporting, cultural, community service, competitive, non-competitive – to meet the diverse needs of our energetic and enthusiastic student community.
Co-curricular activities teach students the positives of being part of a team, sharing their sense of fun with others, and keeping mentally and physically active.
School of Performing Arts
Ipswich Girls' Grammar School is excited to announce the School of Performing Arts – a performing arts program of excellence for students in Years 10, 11 and 12 wishing to extend their skills across a range of performance styles. In this intensive, practical, co-curricular course, students will connect with industry professionals once a week across a number of disciplines (Dance, Screen Acting, Voice and Musical Theatre), preparing them for work in the Entertainment Industry. For more information, students should see Miss Muller in the Performing Arts staffroom.
Private tuition is offered for students keen to advance in tennis, speech and drama and various strands of music. These lessons, from highly qualified teachers, may be held either during the school day or after school. Swimming, skipping, rhythmic and artistic gymnastics, AusKick (Australian Rules Football) and rugby clinics are also offered - girls and boys are encouraged to participate in all these sports.
Students are withdrawn from class subjects on a rotational basis for Music and Speech and Drama, eg clarinet lessons may be on Wednesdays but at a different time each week so that you do not miss out on the same subject class each week.
Private lessons are arranged with visiting teachers, and fees are payable directly to them.
If you would like to participate in private tuition lessons for these activities please refer to the information and application forms below.
