Welcome to Georges River Grammar

Georges River Grammar is an independent, co-educational school for students from Kindergarten to Year 12, located in Sydney’s South-West. Affectionately known as GRG, the School is a dynamic and supportive environment that offers students varied opportunities for a holistic and engaging education which enables every GRG student to thrive, grow and prosper. The School is committed to providing students with a safe, encouraging, and nurturing learning environment, whereby each student is known and supported throughout their own unique learning journey and provided with opportunities to experience success and achievement. We are a community where the values of sacrifice, community, compassion, and service take pride of place.

Affectionately known as GRG, the School is a dynamic and supportive environment that offers students varied opportunities for a holistic and engaging education which enables every GRG student to thrive, grow and prosper. The School provides students with a safe, encouraging, and nurturing learning environment, whereby each student is known and supported throughout their own unique learning journey and provided with opportunities to experience success and achievement. We are a community where the values of sacrifice, community, compassion, and service take pride of place.

Governed by these values, the School’s mission is an expression of its Christian ethos and its relationship with students, staff, parents and the wider community.

GRG continually strives to:

  • develop students into critical and creative thinkers.
  • challenge students to develop their sense of inquiry and harness their problem-solving skills.
  • ensure that student wellbeing is priority by providing an effective Student Wellbeing program using the principles of Positive Psychology and the Berry Street Education Model.
  • embrace the use of technology in the classroom and educate students about the need to be responsible digital citizens.
  • promote open and honest communication between the School and the home.
  • strengthen students’ understanding of servant leadership through social justice initiatives, in partnership with various international aide organisations and local Indigenous communities.

 


Our highly professional and committed staff, under the leadership of our Principal Mrs Raquel Charet, challenge each student to extend themselves in their academic, social, physical, and spiritual endeavours. Empowered with the knowledge, skills and capabilities required in our ever-changing world, our students are developed into compassionate, resilient, engaged and accomplished lifelong learners.

 

GRG is part of a network of NSW Independent Schools who have adopted the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning Framework that has been embedded in over 1500 schools worldwide. Deep Learning is learning that is transformative, student-centered, and creative; it has real-world application.

The Deep Learning Framework assists students to develop and acquire six global competencies - the skills and attributes they will need to flourish as citizens of the world beyond the classroom and school context. These six competencies, known as the 6Cs, underpin the curriculum and are incorporated in teaching and learning programs:
-Critical Thinking
-Communication
-Creativity
-Character
-Collaboration
-Citizenship
The GRG School Board has commenced the process of developing a new Master Plan, including the building of a new School Auditorium. The construction of these new facilities has been purposefully designed to facilitate deep learning, with a particular focus on creating learning environments that support collaborative learning, creativity, technological currency and encouraging students to develop their critical thinking skills.

In the Secondary School, a state-of-the-art Trade Skills Centre has been built to deliver the VET Construction course to students in Stage 5 and 6. This large workshop, accompanied by an ICT classroom in the Centre, is also used extensively by other Technology classes. In 2021, the Secondary School also unveiled a new, innovative, Science laboratory, a space which allows students to develop their sense of curiosity.

Georges River Grammar operates an Out of School Hours (OSHC) program from 7:00am to 8:30am, and 3:00pm to 6:00pm for students in our Primary School.
Vacation Care is also available for 11 weeks of non-term time.

All students are provided with a nutritious breakfast and afternoon tea during the school term, and lunch during Vacation Care. Students enjoy a variety of outdoor and indoor activities, prompting them to develop friendships with their peers whilst learning. Students are also given the opportunity to complete homework, with assistance, if required.

All students at GRG also have the ability to utilise:
-the School Canteen, which caters for all students in K-12 providing a wide variety of healthy lunches, snacks and refreshments;
-a dedicated Music Space, with individual studios that allow students to participate in one-to-one music lessons or practise their instrument in a quiet, private space;
- multiple Visual Arts Studios which stimulate our students’ sense of creativity;
- a fully functional Commercial Kitchen, used by our Senior Hospitality students and Food Technology students;
-the Primary and Secondary School Libraries, which house an extensive collection of fiction and non-fiction resources for student borrowing, and also allow our students to study and engage in collaborative work with their peers; and,
-an onsite Uniform Shop with the full range of GRG uniforms for all our students.

The GRG Sports Program plays an integral role in the life of students at GRG. The School fosters a sporting environment which caters for the diverse school community through the provision of a variety of sporting activities for all students who wish to participate in sport and physical activity, regardless of ability. The sporting program at GRG is a valuable platform for developing character and a lifelong interest in health and fitness among our students.

GRG also offers an extensive co-curricular program that provides students with many opportunities to reach their personal best outside the classroom. The list of options for the students to choose from grows each year: Duke of Edinburgh, Study Hub, Debating, Public Speaking and an extensive Music problem, are just a few of the co-curricular activities on offer.

The School has four private bus runs each morning and afternoon. There is an additional charge for these services, which are conducted on buses owned and operated by the School:
• Cabramatta, Canley Heights, Canley Vale, Fairfield, Lansvale, Guildford and Villawood.
• Menai, Alfords Point and Sutherland
• Lugarno
• Voyager Point, Pleasure Point, Wattle Grove and Georges Fair.

Transdev, a private bus company, also runs government-funded special bus services to the School from East Hills, Revesby, Sandy Point, Moorebank, Liverpool, Wattle Grove, Chester Hill, Bankstown, and Picnic Point.

At GRG, we understand that the school plays a critical role in the promotion of wellbeing - promoting student wellbeing enhances learning. Therefore, we focus on the whole student and provide opportunities that enable every GRG student to thrive, grow and prosper.

Our Student Wellbeing Program ensures that each student is known and supported throughout their own unique learning journey. We believe that all students can succeed, and our wellbeing program has been designed and implemented to ensure that each student aspires and achieves their goals.

Using the work of Martin Seligman and other researchers within the field of psychology, students explore the tenets of positive psychology and are encouraged to adopt these principles in their own lives. Students are provided with strategies which enable them to take a proactive approach when dealing with the issues they will inevitably face. Under the direction of the GRG Wellbeing Team, students are equipped with the tools required to flourish emotionally, academically, mentally, and spiritually.

Our aim at GRG is to develop students into resilient, engaged and accomplished lifelong learners, ready to face the challenges of our increasingly complex world. Fostering a sense of personal responsibility and commitment to others underpins our Student Wellbeing Program. The key components of positive psychology are embedded throughout the GRG curriculum, as students learn the importance of developing a growth mindset, serving others, and building meaning and purpose in their life.

GRG has adopted the Berry Street Education Model, an evidence-based K-12 framework which enables our teachers to increase the engagement of all students by improving their ability to self-regulate, build effective relationships, develop empathy, and the stamina and grit required to ultimately achieve. GRG takes a positive and solutions-focused approach to behaviour management; we set clear boundaries and expectations for every child, whilst recognising that each child is an individual with unique physical, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual needs. Our staff embody the qualities of compassion and respect, treating each student in the first instance with unconditional positive regard, as they guide the young people in their care. Teachers actively foster a culture of collaboration and respect, providing an anchor for students and ensure that the school environment is safe, supportive and conducive to learning.

GRG also employs a full-time psychologist, who is able to provide additional academic, psychosocial, and emotional wellbeing support for students across K-12, as necessary.

We know that wellbeing underpins every aspect of a student’s schooling; from their ability to learn, their capacity to build positive relationships and ultimately their educational outcomes. We believe that working in partnership with parents and families is essential to student wellbeing, and developing effective partnerships built on trust, respect, and shared responsibility, means that our students flourish.

The School’s mission is an expression of its Christian ethos and its relationship with students, staff, parents and the wider community governed by the values of community, sacrifice, service and compassion.
Georges River Grammar is very proud of its student graduates. The School offers a comprehensive education that prepares young people for tertiary education, full-time employment and the world beyond formal schooling.
By cultivating a vibrant and caring environment GRG ensures that each student feels an innate sense of belonging to the community. Whether they be academic, sporting, creative, social justice, or anything else that school entails, GRG students flourish. The GRG student is encouraged to embrace their unique sense of individuality and pursue their endeavours.
GRG strives to ensure our graduates become responsible global citizens by:
• providing opportunities to develop an understanding of the link between academic learning and well-being;
• developing strategies that enhance their resilience and ability to ‘bounce back’ from challenge and adversity;
• believing that all students can succeed in their learning;
• promoting student connections;
• stimulating student engagement with learning;
• providing learning experiences that are relevant to their lives;
• fostering high expectations in all learners;
• engaging staff and students in dialogue about understanding learning;
• enhancing positive psycho-social and developmental outcomes through protective factors;
• utilising a range of support networks and resources by implementing structures and programs in response to diverse student needs; and,
• strengthening students’ understanding of servant leadership through social justice initiatives
We are committed to excellence and the realisation of each child’s potential. Our school’s values community, sacrifice, service and compassion underpin all that we do.

Music is flourishing at Georges River Grammar. Our focus is to motivate students to explore and create in a music rich environment.

Inside the classroom, Secondary students are encouraged to explore performance, composition and musicology in an environment where they are able to collaborate, create and develop critical thinking skills. Primary students undertake lessons that revolve around listening, moving, and creating music.

Outside of the classroom, and in the wider community, our students participate in a variety of ensembles and performances.

Students learn best when they feel confident, their motivation is high, and learning is targeted towards their specific needs and interests. At GRG, we know that differentiation is the key to ensuring that each individual student’s strengths and weaknesses are considered in the creation of responsive, innovative and engaging programs. All students undertake wide-ranging testing, including Allwell Testing, at various stages in their schooling at GRG – this practice gives the School comprehensive data and information that allows us to create an extensive learner profile for each student and provide individualised support and extension to every child enrolled at our school.

Gifted Education

Message from the Principal

Georges River Grammar has grown exponentially since its humble beginnings almost 40 years ago. We are a diverse and collaborative community that has developed the reputation of being a school that ensures that each student genuinely feels safe, connected and has an authentic sense of belonging. Community is at the centre of all we do at GRG and is undeniably one of the School’s core strengths, entrenched in every facet of our school. Embracing inclusivity and diversity involves recognising, celebrating and appreciating the wide range of backgrounds, cultures, perspectives and experiences that students, staff and families bring to the School. We believe that involving parents and caregivers in an inclusive manner fosters a strong sense of community that encourages active participation in the School’s activities and decision-making processes.

GRG is also a school that genuinely caters for and supports the needs of all students by pursuing excellence in all facets of education: teaching & learning, student wellbeing, co-curricular and service learning.

Students need to be given the opportunity to discover and nurture their passions and at GRG we ensure that this is the case. Most importantly, students are at the centre of each and every decision. We provide individualised programs to cater for all our students so that each student is extended, challenged and supported in their own unique learning journey and achieves their goals, whatever those goals may be.
