BGS is constantly evolving and its enduring success has been achieved through innovative practice and forward thinking.
Our vision is to replace our ageing Science classrooms with a new STEAM Precinct – creating an environment that excites, engages and inspires both our students and their teachers and promotes deeper and richer learning.
The precinct will be far more than a new building to staff and students; it will be a hub for ideas, for innovation and for educational and social interaction.
The acronym STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics – refers not just to these standalone disciplines but rather as a way of thinking. STEAM represents the skills required to process scientific method. This includes observing, forming questions, making predictions, designing and carrying out experiments, hypothesising and discussing projected outcomes. STEAM Education is an approach to learning that uses these disciplines as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.
The STEAM Precinct will be a physical extension of Brisbane Grammar School’s educational philosophy to develop critical, reflective and creative thinkers with the capacity and enthusiasm for independent, lifelong learning. The precinct will exemplify our commitment to be a thinking institution and will shape the way we educate BGS boys for decades to come.
The future is here.
