Sport

Townsville Grammar School offers an extensive Sports Program for students from Prep to Year 12.

We believe that Sport provides an underpinning code of behaviour for every student to train with commitment, to play fairly, to embrace defeat graciously and to accept victory humbly.

Sports Scholarships
Students with outstanding skill/potential in one or more sports may be eligible to apply for a SPORT or GENERAL EXCELLENCE Bursary. Sport Scholarships are available for students enrolling in Years 7-11. Click here for more information.
