We all want our children to grow into strong and compassionate young adults, prepared for the world and an unknown future. It has been essential for me, that as my sons become men, they ask challenging questions, are taught to think critically, develop research skills proven to help them in higher education and are encouraged to be active in their communities to take their learning beyond academic study. I make no mistake when I say that MBBC has been the absolute best place for them to be.
At MBBC our students are encouraged to extend themselves intellectually and to strive to achieve-whether this is in the classroom, the playing field or the stage. For your son to grow into a man capable of dealing with life’s challenges he needs a school experience that allows him to become as our motto suggests, a life adventurer; and life achiever!
Moreton Bay Boys’ College has a strong philosophy of educating the whole person - body, mind, heart and spirit. A vibrant and caring Pastoral programme underpins the focus on academic excellence. This is coupled with a rich Co-Curricular programme to engage your son across Visual and Performing Arts, Cultural activities and a wide range of Sports.
Boys need a learning environment that gives both the boundaries and the freedom to explore and experiment, to take risks, to debate and challenge! Moreton Bay Boys’ College provides this, and our outstanding teaching staff strive to ensure that your son will achieve his personal best, embrace opportunities to develop as a leader, to volunteer, to develop the courage to overcome and to act with integrity. As a single-sex College, your son is free to be himself and to build strong and resilient self-esteem. Like our sister school, Moreton Bay College, Moreton Bay Boys’ College has a strong tradition in single-sex education. We are also a young and dynamic school, embracing innovation and change. This creates an exciting learning environment for your son to thrive.
Our academic programme is based within the International Baccalaureate (IB) which aims to do more than other standard curricula. MBBC is the only school in the bayside authorised to deliver the International Baccalaureate PYP and MYP programmes. The IB encourages students to think critically, to challenge and to question. The IB programme is an internationally recognised framework, which works hand in hand with the Australian Curriculum. It will encourage your son to consider both local and international environments in order to prepare for a world where he will increasingly be working globally and be working alongside colleagues from across the globe. It is evident that the world of work is changing, and we are compelled to prepare him for this.
Choosing a school can be one of the most challenging and difficult decisions a parent can make. While this can seem overwhelming, it is worth remembering it is an investment in your son’s future. I believe you can sense the energy of a great school and it is only by visiting that you can get a feeling for the values and culture of MBBC. I would encourage you as a parent to look for the school that best suits the needs and interests of your son. Moreton Bay Boys’ College has an abundance of opportunities for your son to explore and to discover.
For your son to shine he will need a College that cares for him; that knows him. To thrive, he will need to be safe and free from harm and bullying. To excel, he will need kind, patient and intelligent guidance from teachers who are experts in the way boys learn. For him to shine, he needs to have strong and firm boundaries where he feels respected. This is the foundation of the Moreton Bay Boys’ College experience. I invite you and your family to become a part of this exceptional place.
Mr James Sloman
