Congratulations to our Director of Staff Development & Instruction, and newly minted Dr Mark Dowley who has completed his Doctor of Education (Ed.D).

A rare Brighton Grammar sighting of one of Australia’s beautiful black cockatoos occurred last week in the Rosstrevor pine tree, as a small flock of Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo’s dined on pine seeds and generally made a royal mess below.

The aim of the group’s 14-day tour was to examine student voice in Australian schools.  The students heard from various staff about student leadership roles, as well as student-led initiatives such as the Legacy Project, to programs such as […]

It’s been a big day across the School. For many it’s been a day of firsts. The first day of School, the first day of Secondary School. Though it often takes more than a bit of nudging to get the boys to talk about their day, it has been with consideration, planning and warmth that […]

It is a joy to watch the Year 11 student coaches and Year 6 coachees engage in deep conversation as they make their way from Chapel at St. Andrew’s to the Wellbeing Centre on Fridays.  After some familiarisation activities early this term, the student coaches have led their coachee through conversations to establish a personal […]
