‘Our learning community at Grammar is designed to deliver a personalised education by providing a wide range of opportunities to identify, ignite and support students’ individual passions,’ said Sunshine Coast Grammar School Principal, Mrs Anna Owen.

The School boasts a vibrant sporting culture, with many teams consistently gaining State, National and International recognition, including our Tennis Program that recently won Tennis Queensland’s Most Outstanding School and Coaching Excellence Development Award 2022.

Through the School’s comprehensive co-curricular programs, Sunshine Coast Grammar promotes a culture of participation, dedication, and teamwork. The School also frequently hosts competitive regional Chess, Mathematics, and Debating as well as recently being selected as the first regional school to host the da Vinci Decathlon and will continue to welcome Queensland regional schools annually for the next four years.

‘Providing these opportunities in a regional setting is a significant milestone towards equity in education for children and highlights the importance of a rich, varied, broad and inclusive co-curricular program,’ said Mrs Anna Owen.

Sunshine Coast Grammar School encourages students to look outwards to others and serve our community through their acclaimed Grammar Helping Hands servant leadership program, now in its 13th year. Through our decade-long partnership with Clean Up Australia, students have helped to remove over 1 tonne of rubbish from local beaches. 

Situated on a 100-acre natural rainforest site, Sunshine Coast Grammar boasts two spring-fed lakes and rainforest playgrounds. The School takes their social and environmental responsibilities seriously and are dedicated to providing enriched student experiences focusing on people, planet and progress while delivering on the UN 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

‘Schools are about more than what happens in the classroom and where the school is located and we are proud to be championing regional education opportunities for our students,’ said Mrs Anna Owen.

‘It is a priority for our students to contribute to, and remain connected to, the world around them by immersing themselves in and celebrating community at all stages of life as the Grammar journey does not stop once our students leave the school gates,’ said Mrs Anna Owen.
