BOARDING school can be a daunting prospect for both parents and children from rural and regional families.

So this weekend one of the state's most well-known girls schools, Ipswich Girls' Grammar, will be on site at Roma Show to explain the school's role in making the transition from country to city less stressful.

IGGS offers boarding to girls from Years 7 to 12 and is committed to assisting rural families, to make the move from away to school as easy as possible for rural and regional families.

The school currently offers a "Grammar Girl for a Week" program, where our Head of Boarding will travel to your town, collect between three to six girls interested in boarding at IGGS, so they can come to the school and experience the life of an IGGS boarder.

The girls are able to immerse themselves in life at IGGS, living in the Boarding House, attending classes, going to sporting events, using school facilities including the new Human Movements Laboratory and Gym, and the Centre for Young Women's Health and Wellbeing.

The visitors also have access to senior staff who can discuss with them their academic goals and what they hope to achieve in their schooling years.

The week long experience also includes a welcome lunch and a chaperoned visit to Dreamworld.

The program is offered at no cost to rural families and is organised by IGGS to ensure new students and their families are both informed and confident when making the decision to enrol.

  • For more information, or to learn about scholarships on offer, visit our booth at the Roma Show or contact the School on 07 3454 4447.
