Message from the Churchie Headmaster

Churchie is delighted to be convening this conference for educators of boys’ schools across Australia and New Zealand, on behalf of the International Boys’ Schools Coalition.

The central theme of Leading and Learning through Service focuses on exploring how serving others in local, national and international communities can develop leadership skills, resilience and wellrounded character in young people. Further, that embracing a service and volunteering mindset will enable a young person to know about themselves and other people within and beyond their communities. Many schools recognise their responsibility to offer a range of service-based activities to teach young people important life lessons about how they might positively influence their world, develop their own resilience and emotional intelligence and, ultimately, their character.

A diverse array of presenters will explore this central theme by sharing their own observations and insights from service experiences in life; how their character and leadership skills benefited from serving others and the links between their professional lives and the time spent being of service to others in local, national and international communities. On behalf of the Churchie and wider educational community, I sincerely thank the members of the organising committee. I wish you an engaging and professionally rewarding conference experience at Churchie.

Best regards,

Dr Alan Campbell
Headmaster, Churchie

Message from the Regional Vice President

The Australia New Zealand region of the International Boys’ Schools Coalition is pleased to invite you to our second regional conference to be hosted by the Anglican Church Grammar School, Churchie, in Brisbane, Queensland.

I hope all educators focused on the development of boys will find the theme and purpose of the conference, which is about ‘service’, of interest. Dr Alan Campbell and his IBSC organising committee have done a wonderful job in collecting a diverse range of speakers and are looking forward to a great deal of sharing and growth for all participants. Brisbane in April is always beautiful and I know that Churchie will be exemplary hosts.

Best regards,
