Indigenous Mentor

Mrs. Therese Ellems was appointed Townsville Grammar School’s Indigenous Mentor in 2015. Therese is also the Assistant to the Head of Boarding and House Parent to the senior girls (Crowder House).

Our Indigenous Mentor position helps to transition newly enrolled indigenous students into the boarding school environment.  It is often a daunting task for our Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) boarders to make the move from indigenous communities to metropolitan areas such as Townsville.  Our Indigenous Mentor position is in place to make this process easier and connect students  with the people who can help when they experience difficulties at their school. 

If you would like to speak to Therese, you can email her on therese.ellems@tgs.qld.edu.au or call 4922 4964.

If you would like information about Boarding at Townsville Grammar School, you can contact Kristell Scott at kristell.scott@tgs.qld.edu.au or if you would like to arrange a  personalised tour, call 4722 4973.
