The student wellbeing curriculum provides a set of opportunities for the holistic development of all of our students. It aims to help boys become happy, confident, and resilient lifelong learners who contribute to their communities. These curriculum experiences will enable students to lead themselves and others, make healthy decisions, and meet challenges of the future with hope and optimism. The curriculum is shaped by four strands: leadership, healthy living, career education, and positive education. It closely aligns to the five School values: learning, endeavour, respect, community, and leadership. The student wellbeing curriculum endeavours to provide age-specific experiences that are relevant, all-inclusive, dynamic, and strength-based in approach.
An integral part of the mission of BGS is the care of each member of its community.
A formalised student wellbeing structure which includes a dedicated student wellbeing team supports this mission. Every individual’s progress through all areas of school life is monitored, together with additional case management of boys with particular needs. The Deputy Headmaster – Students oversees this program.
There is also an extensive series of support networks, leadership opportunities and a structured student wellbeing program specifically designed to guide and encourage our young men as they grow and mature.
The School is committed to a culture that nurtures and encourages the ongoing development of a resilient, responsible and happy individual who is actively connected to his school and to the wider community.
