Our Guiding Philosophy
The future isn’t what it used to be. Recognising that knowledge-based learning is no longer enough, Brisbane Boys’ College focuses on teaching children how to think. Not only to solve problems, but to recognise them in the first place. To question the status quo and solve problems to make the world a better place. Not just when they leave school but now at BBC. We call this ‘A New School of Thought’.
As experts in boys’ education, we view learning alongside childhood development with our approach contextualised by our guiding philosophy - ‘All About the Boy’.
To produce men who have the confidence and capability to change the world.
