BGS awarded as an ‘Innovative School 2018’
BGS has been named a winner in The Educator’s Innovative Schools awards. The awards recognise ‘those that are truly pushing the boundaries of education’. The School’s submission was based on its iDesign program, now in its eighth year.
Jamie Watson, Head of Creative Design and Technology, dreamt up iDesign to stimulate the boys’ creativity, to encourage them to engage in a hands-on longer term project, and to create a memorable milestone for their cohort. Jamie says: ‘The iDesign projects have surpassed all of our expectations, and the credit for the quality and success of the program lies with the students, their mentors and families. The project would not have taken off without the dedication and passion that these boys have put into their projects. I have been absolutely blown away by what our students can produce when given the opportunity.’
