The saying “It takes a village to raise a child”, originating from various African cultures, emphasises the significance of a community that comes together to provide a nurturing and safe environment for children to grow and develop positively. In today’s society, this proverb has never been more relevant, especially in a post-pandemic world.
Braemar College prioritises the growth and wellbeing of its students, both inside and outside the classroom. Its programs seek to challenge and inspire each student, promoting personal excellence. Teaching our students to think independently and with an open mind will enable them to become lifelong learners who can make meaningful contributions to their local and global communities.
The middle school program encourages students to contribute to making our planet a better place. Students participate in vibrant, multi-year, house-based activities that provide them with knowledge and practical experience in multiple settings.
Being part of a college that enrols students ranging from 10 to 18 years of age allows students to embrace even larger and more complex learning projects.
The senior school students understand that their role modelling is important in shaping the next generation of senior school learners. Their leadership of classroom engagement, focussed learning, social justice and playing a part in a bigger picture of community membership is vital.
To add to these experiences, the broader college, most noticeably Old Collegians, continue to be engaged, bringing a wealth of life experience and a worldly perspective to student learning.
During a student’s journey, Braemar College offers multiple opportunities for them to collaborate and work together to solve complex problems through its academic offerings, outdoor activities, experiential education, and environmental initiatives.
The unique campuses, nestled in natural surroundings, along with Braemar’s interstate and overseas experiences, shape the “village” at Braemar College and prepare students for the next stage of their personal growth.
