Boarding schools can offer girls a valuable learning environment that will foster independence and personal growth while they are supported by experienced teachers and mentors.

But it's a big decision, making the choice about which boarding school is the right fit for your daughter and is going to give her the best opportunities in life.

The team from one of Queensland's leading day and boarding schools, Ipswich Girls' Grammar School, near Brisbane, have many years of experience in making sure girls who join the school community as a boarder become part of a nurturing sisterhood where they can thrive.

And now is your chance to tap into their knowledge. The school's senior staff will be hitting the road in May, attending agricultural shows around Queensland to allow parents and potential students to learn more about what boarding schools like Ipswich Girls' Grammar can offer.

Here's the team's advice on some of the things to look for when you're choosing a girls' boarding school and questions to ask.

What are the benefits of a boarding school?

A student's high school years are some of the most formative and challenging times they will experience. A boarding school offers a supportive and diverse environment that is designed to help girls achieve their best both academically and personally.

At Ipswich Girls' Grammar students can participate in more than 50 extra curricular activities. They are well supported with personalised learning plans and regular one-to-one meetings with senior staff ensuring each girl is continually guided and helped to reach her full potential.

The school is focused on fostering your daughter's independence and personal growth while she is supported by experienced teachers and mentors.

With boarders hailing from throughout the state and from overseas, Ipswich Girls' Grammar offers a diverse environment where girls can meet a wide range of people from many different backgrounds and open their minds to the wider world.

How will I know my daughter will be safe and enjoy the boarding environment?

At Ipswich Girls' Grammar the safe and secure boarding facility Cribb House is situated in the middle of the school's expansive campus. 

Cribb House is staffed by caring and experienced boarding staff whose role includes making sure each student settles into boarding life, makes friends and takes on the opportunities available to her as an Ipswich Girls' Grammar student.

What are the different options?

You'll want flexibility that suits your individual needs when it comes to the types of boarding offered by the school you choose.

Ipswich Girls' Grammar for example offers full-time boarding but also options such as weekly or overnight boarding. There's also daily boarding for busy families that require a later pick-up time in the afternoons.

Want to learn more? Come along to any of these shows to meet Ipswich Girls' Grammar senior staff, pick up an information pack and find out what the school can offer your daughter.

Ipswich Girls' Grammar School would love your family to join its community. For more information you can email marketing@girlsgrammar.com.au or call 07 3454 4447.
