The education of your son is a shared journey; students, parents, teachers and other members of the School and wider community are all integral to the experience, before, during and often long after your son’s schooling years are over. The lifetime bonds formed are not only those of students with their mates; being connected to the wider school community can be a richly rewarding relationship for all.
At BGS we believe that the best education, in all its facets, is provided by the whole community working together to help the boys achieve their best. There is a real commitment to the School and families working together for the boys in a true partnership. This cooperative endeavour is seen in many aspects of the School from the various groups which support students' involvement in school activities, to the significant partnership that develops between families and teachers as the boys progress through the academic program, and to the wonderful volunteers who make up the Parents and Friends’ Association which physically and financially support many features of their children's education.
Once the boys have completed their education, they become, either formally or informally, life time members of the BGS Old Boys. Many former students enrol their sons to provide them with the same opportunities and benefits they received from a BGS education.
The School has a rich history with its Old Boys featuring prominently in the development of the State of Queensland. Today, Old Boys of the School continue to honour this legacy and are significant contributors to many fields of endeavour not only in Queensland but in the rest of Australia and overseas.
