The 1881 Endowment
Since 1881 The Rockhampton Grammar School has been considered a centre of excellence in education, not only in Central Queensland but throughout the state and Australia.
The School is building on its tradition of developing young men and women of Character and Scholarship by opening its doors more widely to the community and accepting enrolment of children who otherwise would not attend the School due to financial reasons.
One of the hallmarks of RGS, Queensland’s largest co-educational boarding school, is its accessibility to families from all over Central Queensland as well as Rockhampton and the nearby coast. Still, the cost of an independent school education is an obstacle to many families who want to benefit from the programs and opportunities available to all Rockhampton Grammar School children.
The Board of the Trustees, believing in the educational advantages available to young people at The Rockhampton Grammar School, has established The 1881 Endowment, a school scholarship fund that enables means-tested students from all backgrounds to study here annually at reduced rates or at no cost.
