Olympic Swimmers to visit Townsville Grammar School at the Schoolâ??s annual Open Night

Townsville Grammar School will host two Olympic swimmers this Thursday afternoon for their training session. Olympic swimmers, Mack Horton and Koti Ngawati, along with Olympic Team Coach Craig Jackson, will visit the school to train in the School Pool. They have also offered to talk to students and media from 5.30pm-6pm about what it means to train at the Australian Institute of Sport to represent Australia, answer any swimming questions and, of course, sign some autographs.

Meanwhile, the School will be alive with festivities on Thursday as it is also the School’s annual Open Night. From 3.30 to 7.00pm, there will be guided tours by current Grammar students, information sessions and dramatic and musical performances by the students.

STEM, or science, technology, engineering and maths, is a buzz word in education currently. Students and staff will be undertaking a talk and tour to help inform why this is so important for students studying in 2016, and the real world applications.

Other information forums will include talks about Club Sport and the established Year 7 programme at Grammar.

Of course, no festivities are complete without food! There will be plenty of tasty treats to eat as the School’s hospitality students open ‘Café Infusion’ for the evening, as well as the Modern Language students hosting a food stall with flavours from afar including Japanese, Italian, Indonesian and French cuisine.

Grammar School is a school where young people, irrespective of their innate abilities, can achieve their personal best. The School motto Bonus Intra Melior Exi, i.e. "come in good and go out better" is a guiding philosophy in our approach to the academic, sporting, cultural and character development of all young Grammarians who pass through the School. The School enjoys a remarkable culture of achievement and this is reflected in its well-deserved pre-eminent status as an educational institution in North Queensland.
