Leading & Learning, APR '15

IBSC Conference: Leading and Learning
Through Service

Thursday to Saturday, 16-18 April 2015

Anglican Church Grammar School (Churchie)
East Brisbane, QLD, Australia

The central theme of Leading and Learning Through Service is exploring how serving others in local, national and international communities can develop leadership skills, resilience and well-rounded character in young men. Further to this, embracing a service and volunteering mindset will enable young men to learn about themselves and other people within and beyond their communities. Insights from keynote speakers will assist to inform the work of educators in national and international boys’ schools as they seek to develop service-learning, character and leadership programs in their schools.

This program will include:

  • experienced high profile speakers
  • conversations on service from colleagues in our schools
  • tours of leading boys’ schools in Brisbane
  • the chance to experience Brisbane and South-East Queensland in April
