In striving for the education of the whole person, Brisbane Boys' College aims to provide as many activities as possible, within and outside the formal school curriculum. It is intended that much of what has been termed co-curricular activity is merely an extension of what occurs in the classroom. The comprehensive and extensive out-of-class curriculum seeks to provide additional opportunities for character development, decision making, problem solving and leadership.
Participation in activities at BBC, though not compulsory, is expected.
The College does not regard cultural activities as more important than sporting or vice versa. The lessons learnt and experiences gained occur regardless of the specific activity. The College does suggest though, that some physical activity be included in each student's routine because of our concern for the health and physical well-being of every student.
Generally, it is recommended that every student be involved in a minimum of two activities per year. If you have any queries concerning co-curricular activities, please contact Mr Mark Dwyer, Head of Co-curricular Activities on (07) 3309 3526.
