Nil Sine Labore - nothing without hard work
BRISBANE GRAMMAR SCHOOL has an outstanding 146-year historical commitment to learning expressed both in terms of academic outcomes and the development of lifelong learners. Students are encouraged and assisted to fully explore and develop their potential in academic, sporting and cultural endeavours as the school seeks to nurture compassionate, confident and well-rounded young men.
All GPS sports and cultural activities (chess and debating) and a range of other sports and activities including fencing, Tae Kwon-Do, drama, an extensive music program, Computer Club, Robotics Club and Duke of Edinburgh awards scheme.
Boarding has been an integral and dynamic part of the School’s landscape since it opened in 1869. Boarders are in the perfect position and have ample opportunity to access the vast array of experiences the School has to offer. As Harlin House is located at the heart of the campus, the boarders have, on their doorstep, extensive playing fields, the Indoor Sports Centre and the Music Centre, and need only walk about 50m to The Lilley Centre for prep which houses the senior library, and to which the boarders have access to during week nights.
This stimulating boarding environment is comprised of young men from rural and regional communities, provincial cities and overseas locations. A warm and nurturing community, the boys undoubtedly form strong bonds and valued friendships that continue long after school, often lasting a lifetime. Our house tutors are all graduate staff, the majority of them teachers, who focus on supporting the boys through the many personal and academic challenges that are a part of life.
Our aim is that boarding at Brisbane Grammar School will provide your son with a chance to develop both his emotional and intellectual intelligence through his interaction with a diverse range of people and experiences.
Visit us on Open Day 23 August 12 noon to 3pm. All welcome.
