Parent Seminar Series

Pervasive Practices: Women in Boys’ Education

Brisbane Boys’ College aims to develop young men who are open to the world and to new ways of thinking. We want to be a school that is not captive to past practices or be complacent about the future. In an increasingly VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous) world, boys need to have agile and flexible minds. Whilst BBC has been a traditionally masculine environment, today the role of women is recognised and supported as critical. As educators, role models or family; whether engaging with our students at the chalk face or in the canteen; women help our boys to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding.

This briefing will look at the role of women in boys’ education to support balance,
well-being, values and resilience.

The presentation will run from 7.30am to 8.00am, with an additional 15 minutes for questions. Prior to the presentation a light breakfast will be served in College Hall Foyer, please RSVP for catering purposes.
