Learning that takes place outside the traditional classroom has a profound impact on students’ development, giving them courage to seek learning experiences that inspire positive relationships with peers and staff.
The BBC Co-curricular Program is designed to extend each boy’s understanding of himself, his capabilities, his perspective and his appreciation of the value of commitment and contribution, while complimenting his classroom learning.
The central focus is always on challenging each boy to perform in ways he never thought possible – whether the activity is a game, a club or a service. A breadth of opportunities is provided beyond the classroom, to stimulate real-world learning, to challenge our students to learn and wonder about the world, and to enjoy the whole Brisbane Boys’ College experience.
We believe that trying to win is a good thing. We believe that, in trying to win, we encourage our boys to participate at high levels, to learn the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of the activity, to stretch their competencies and set their aspirations high. We also believe that to be humble in victory and gracious in defeat are defining characteristics of a BBC boy.
