Giving at IGS

A major part of our strategic planning at Ipswich Grammar School is to continue to look to the future for our boys. This involves ensuring our school remains at the forefront of learning innovation through facilities, educational and co-curricular programs and our staff are trained to the highest level. 


It also means ongoing investment into our school through new buildings and the maintenance, or renovation, of existing ones. To be a school of exceptional performance, we can’t stand still. We need to always ensure that we reach for the stars when creating our future so our boys have the greatest opportunities possible available to them.


The Ipswich Grammar School Building Fund is our main philanthropic area for giving to the school. In the past we have experienced great generosity from Old Boys, families, the wider community and businesses whom have all left legacies for our future generations.


Our Current Project – STEM and The Arts

Over the next two years we are commencing the development of an ambitious project – a new STEM Building and a fully refurbished Arts Building. 


The development of these facilities is a significant investment in our school and an integral component of our current Strategic Plan. 


The first of these projects, Ipswich Grammar School’s STEM Building, will be located in the area that is currently our school’s Art studios and our former Boarding dormitories. Our STEM building will be an innovative learning space consisting of teaching spaces, laboratories, break out rooms and lecture theatre - all encased in a technology-rich environment. 


Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics are knowledge sets vital for our boys’ futures. Mastering STEM subjects will provide our boys with opportunities to pursue fulfilling careers and make real differences in the world we live in. This innovative educational approach which seeks to have our boys apply their understandings in the Sciences and Maths to real life situations will help our boys prepare themselves to contribute to the scientific developments and innovations of tomorrow, and provide solutions to some of the big issues we all face in the future.
