Brisbane
Brisbane
Grammar School was founded in 1868 under the Grammar Schools Act, which had been passed by the Queensland
Queensland
Government in 1860. It was the second school established under this act in Queensland, with the first being Ipswich Grammar School. The original school, designed by Benjamin Backhouse, was on the site of Roma Street in Brisbane
Brisbane
City. HRH Prince Alfred, Duke of Edinburgh (1844–1900), second son of Queen Victoria, laid the foundation stone at the site on 21 February 1868. In 1881, the school was moved a few hundred metres away to its current site on Gregory Terrace in Spring Hill to make way for the Roma Street Railway Station, which still stands today. Following the opening of the boarding house in 1886, science laboratories were constructed in 1912. On 14 August 1916, the Queensland
Queensland
Governor, Sir Hamilton Goold-Adams unveiled a war memorial with the names of 600 students who had enlisted.[8] A new library and assembly hall were constructed in 1969 as a celebration of the school's centenary.

The new school on Gregory Terrace, 1889

During the mid-1990s, the school commenced work on the off-campus Northgate ovals, which now consist of six fields that are used for cricket, rugby union and soccer fixtures. The Indoor Sports Centre was completed in 2000, and the old gymnasium was later renovated to become the new Centre for Art. In 2002, the school underwent a major redevelopment with the construction of a new Middle School, which had its first intake of grade 6 and 7 students in 2003. This Middle School
Middle School
consists of a large block of multi-purpose classrooms, functioning as a complete school in itself, with its own teachers and independent timetables. Grade 6 and 7 students spend most of their time in the Middle School, although they do use the facilities of the "Upper School" for such activities as physical education and assemblies. In 2014, Year 5 was added to the Middle School

Academics[edit] Curriculum[edit] Brisbane
Brisbane
Grammar School offers education from years 5 through to 12. The academic programme is tailored to suit the needs of its students. In recent years, around 95% of graduating students have received a first-round offer to a tertiary institution. The school offers mainstream subjects including English, Mathematics (A, B and C), Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Earth Science), History (Modern and Ancient), Geography, Economics, Health and Physical Education, Music, Technology Studies, Art, Drama and Languages other than English (French, German, Japanese, Chinese, Latin). In addition, the school focuses on a specific academic scope of learning aimed at educating life-skills required in the future. As of late, it has introduced updated technology to assist the students learning from school as well as home. In addition to this currently all students from grades 8–12 each have a Toshiba Tablet PC with a majority of the school's curriculum installed. For the Middle School, Brisbane
Brisbane
Grammar School offers the mainstream subjects (with Spanish and Latin being offered as Languages other than English), as well as laptop facilities. Recent results[edit] In recent years, 95% of graduating students have received a first-round offer to a tertiary institution.[10] In 2006, the school had its second best results since the introduction of the OP system, claiming 49 OP1s. The combined percentage, of OP 1–2 was 30.45% of the school, population which far execeeded the state's average of 5.2%. 68.31% of the students received between and OP1 and an OP7 (the state percentage being 25.4%). 91.8% of the cohort received an OP between 1 and 13. The median OP score was OP5.[11][third-party source needed] With respect to the school's 2008 results, more than one in four students (26.4%) of the cohort achieved an OP 1 or 2. The OP 1–7 result of 63.2% (State 27.4%) was well above the historical average and fourth best result ever and the OP 1–13 result was at 90.1% (State 60.9%) and was the third best result in the school's history.[12][third-party source needed] In 2012, students achieved, in the School's history, the highest percentage of OP1s. A total of 51 students attained an OP1, equating to 20.6% of the cohort. OP1-7 results were also the second best recorded in the School's history (68.5%), while the OP1-13 (93.1%) and OP 1–15 (97%) results, like the OP1 percentages, were also historical records for the School.[13][third-party source needed] Extracurricular activities[edit] Cultural activities[edit] Students are able to participate in a wide range of musical groups, established by former Directors of Music, John Broughton and Bruce May, including two orchestras, five concert bands, three stage bands, eight string ensembles, five choirs, and an array of other instrumental ensembles, including three percussion ensembles. Student-led ensembles feature in concerts every year. Furthermore, each year the BGS Music Department performs an event known as the Grammar Community in Concert, typically at the Queensland Conservatorium of Music. This event brings together members from across the BGS Community, including the BGS Community Choir, incorporating parents, teachers, and friends. The school also has a thriving Drama program, largely established by former Drama Master, Brian Cannon, presenting a range of plays and musicals. In addition, opportunities in debating and public speaking are offered, with the school participating in Queensland
Queensland
Debating Union and Greater Public Schools annual competitions. Additionally, Brisbane
Brisbane
Grammar School has recently revamped its participation in enterprise education groups. With the newly reformed Economics and Enterprise Club, students are gaining exciting experiences through external competitions such as YAA, Ecoman and ABW. An array of other special-interest groups exist, including those which focus on Chess, Astronomy, Aviation, Christianity, Environmental aid, and Community Service. Sport[edit] The school offers a range of mainstream sporting activities, including Cross Country, Track and Field, Rugby, Football (Soccer), Basketball, Tennis, Cricket, Gymnastics, Swimming, Rowing, Sailing, Chess and Volleyball within the GPS association of schools, as well as many others such as Water Polo, Fencing, Australian Rules Football
Australian Rules Football
and Tae Kwon-do. GPS membership[edit] Brisbane
Brisbane
Grammar School is a member of the Great Public Schools Association of Queensland
Queensland
Inc. (GPS). The school's membership enables its students to participate in sporting competitions as well as engage in endeavours such as Debating and musical events. Most competitions are played out on Saturdays at any of the schools' sporting facilities. The main campus comprises four playing fields in addition to eight tennis courts. Many fixtures, including Cricket, Rugby and Football, are conducted at the Northgate Campus. Sailing is run on Sundays at RQYS, Manly, and the GPS championship is held at the end of the season. The school has had long standing success in Water Polo, winning the competition for 12 of the last 13 years.[citation needed] Recent achievements[edit] In 2006, BGS's Senior A debating team achieved 2nd in the GPS competition after losing only one debate in the last round to GPS champions St. Joseph's College, Gregory Terrace.[citation needed] Also in 2006, the School won seven GPS titles (GPS Cross Country, GPS Volleyball, First VI Volleyball, First XI Soccer, GPS Sailing, GPS Gymnastics and GPS Chess), five more titles than any other GPS school. In March 2007, the school secured the O'Connor Cup by winning the 1st VIII race at the annual Brisbane
Brisbane
GPS Head of the River. Furthermore, the 2007 Senior A Debating Team became the champions of the QDU state competition, with a team member making the Australian side. In 2008, the Senior A team won the GPS premiership undefeated and 2 team members achieved selection in the QLD team.[14] Following the 2008 victory in debating, the 2009 BGS Senior A Team was even more successful, winning both the QDU and GPS premierships convincinly beating all opponents. Members of the team Daniel Gibbons, Andrew Justo and Marc Harris were all selected for the State Team, and the BGS Year 12 group of 2009 was, up to that time, the most successful debating cohort in the school's history. However, in 2010, the BGS Senior A Team were undefeated in both GPS and QDU competitions to take out premierships in both. 3 members of the team were selected for the QLD State team, and proceeded to win the National Competition, completing the trifecta of debating championships.[15] In 2011, BGS won both the QDU and GPS Senior A season undefeated beating All Hallows School in the QDU final to become State Champions. In 2010, BGS tied with St Joseph's College, Gregory Terrace
St Joseph's College, Gregory Terrace
to win its 8th consecutive GPS Volleyball Premiership. Terrace beat BGS, in a fullhouse at Terrace only to lose to TGS in the second last round handing BGS a tied premiership. In 2011, Brisbane
Brisbane
Grammar completed the season undefeated, beating Gregory Terrace in straight sets at a packed Indoor Sports Centre. 2012 saw BGS, represented by Nicholas Salmon, Matthew Hales, Philip Gracen and captained by Benjamin Gibbons, win the QDU debating Senior A, defeating Churchie in a unanimous decision, the first of its kind in the competition. BGS also won volleyball for its 10th straight volleyball victory. In a final like situation at Ross Oval, the BGS rugby first XV defeated Nudgee College to secure an outright premiership in rugby for the first time since 1972. 2013 carried over the success of 2012 with an 11th straight premiership in GPS Volleyball, the first Cricket

premiership in 30 years as well as a premiership and state championship to the flagship sailors. 2013 also saw 7 GPS premierships – more than any other GPS school. The School won Volleyball, First XI Cricket, Sailing, Chess, Senior A Debating, Tennis and Gymnastics.[16][full citation needed] The Grammar Vocal Ensemble also achieved a perfect score (100/100) at a Choral Eisteddfod Campus[edit] Indoor Sports Centre[edit] The Indoor Sports Centre was officially opened by the then Governor of Queensland, Major General Peter Arnison
Peter Arnison
on 3 March 2000. The centre, which is situated on the main campus, is home to a multi-purpose double Basketball

court sports hall (which can also accommodate 3 Volleyball courts, 6 Badminton courts, 12 fencing pistes as well as Futsal), an Aquatic Centre with a 10-lane, 25m heated swimming pool, a Gymnasium featuring a deep foam pit, parallel bars and rings and a spectator area with seating for 150 people during sporting events, an indoor Cricket

net, as well as a weights room and theory rooms and amenities. This sports centre has hosted local and international sporting teams, such as the Queensland
Queensland
Reds, Australian Wallabies, Brisbane
Brisbane
Broncos, New Zealand All Blacks, Australian cricket team, United States Swimming squad and the English Rugby team. Northgate playing fields[edit] Work commenced on the Northgate Playing Fields in the mid-1990s, which now have six ovals, accommodating Cricket, Rugby union, Soccer

fixtures. The fields are also used during the school week, especially for winter activities training sessions. Canteen facilities are provided on game days. Adjacent to the main oval is a small stadium which caters for seating for one half of the field, which also contains a dining area. The playing fields were used by the Australian Cricket
Cricket
Team prior to the 2006/2007 Ashes campaign, where they trained with the school's First XI.[17] Normanby playing fields[edit] Normanby, adjacent to the school grounds, harbours tennis courts and minor track and field facilities. Students visit this facility for PE lessons as well as sports training sessions. It is separated from the main campus by a public footbridge. These ovals are being threatened by the Legacy Way
Legacy Way
Tunnel that have taken away the oval, leaving only tennis courts. Auditoriums and theatres[edit] The school has 6 major auditoriums and a theatre: The Centenary Hall, The Great Hall, The Lilley Centre Forum, The Music Auditorium, The Amphitheatre, The Gallery and The Theatre. Centenary Hall accommodates the entire senior school (8–12) student body for weekly assemblies, when The Gallery above is opened up to the Hall. The hall is also used for other events such as breakfasts, music concerts, debates and year-level tests. The Gallery above the hall can accommodate 2-year groups for lectures and information sessions. The Great Hall is one of the school's most historic buildings. The walls have various honour-boards commemorating academic, sporting and cultural achievements, as well as honouring the names of those who have served in wars. The stage is overlooked by a 10*3-metre stain-glass window, with Queen Victoria
Queen Victoria
and her knights of the realm as a central feature. The hall provides venue for Form Year Assemblies, Public speaking, debating and music performances. It is also used for dinner parties (such as the Old-Boys Association's reunions or the 'Mothers of Past Student'’ gatherings) and weddings for old-boys. The Forum can seat around 150–200 people and is used for collaborative learning exercises, usually housing all students in a subject or 3–4 classes. When using the extra seating available, a whole 250 student cohort can be housed. The Music Auditorium, established during the tenure of Dr. Bruce May as Director of Music, is a venue used to highlight the school's large music program. During the year a varied program of choral, concert and stage band and orchestral concerts take place. Many groups rehearse here weekly. Percussion equipment is able to fit in the hall. The Drama Theatre can seat approximately 300 and provides excellent acoustics for theatrical productions. The school holds a Junior School Play, a Senior School Play and a Middle School
Middle School
Production (Play or Musical) every year. It is equipped with sound and lighting equipment, including audio and lighting boards operated by students, a Green Room, and technical storage space. The Centenary Hall for many years was the venue for theatre productions under Director, Brian Cannon. Moogerah Outdoor Education Centre[edit] Brisbane
Brisbane
Grammar School's off-campus centre at Pepperina Hill, near Lake Moogerah, was opened in 1976 and is named the Moogerah Outdoor Education Centre (colloquially referred to as Moogerah). The school sends each form class from grades 8, 9 and 10 out to the campus to strengthen intra-class relationships and morale, as well as develop team-working and leadership skills. Class, "Form Seniors" also attend the camp to build the relationship between the senior, and younger students. The five-day programme includes such activities as rock-climbing, bushwalking, orienteering, canoeing, and a camp-out in the bush at the foot of a mountain. Year 5, 6 and 7 students also visit the campsite, but for a shorter duration – one, two and three days respectively. The centre is also used for various other school activities: Writer's Camps, Composers' Camps, Scientist-In-Residence Camps, sport training, ISCF Christian Camps, Astronomy & sky viewings and fieldwork in senior courses. The rowers utilise the camp's boatshed on the lake's edge for training. The Lilley Centre[edit] The most recent construction project of the school is a centre located on the College Road side of the main campus (named after Premier and Chairman of the Board of Trustees Sir Charles Lilley), and houses several classrooms equipped with learning technologies, a library, a lecture theatre (called 'The Forum') and a seniors' study room. This centre is very beneficial to students' learning in the 21st century. The centre has finished completion; it was officially opened on 26 February 2010 by the then Premier of Queensland, Anna Bligh. School uniform and colours[edit] The School has adopted two sets of colours. The first was introduced by Thomas Harlin, Headmaster 1869–1876. They are red and gold and are now associated with academia. Reginald Heber Roe, Headmaster 1876–1909, introduced the sporting colours of Oxford and Cambridge Blue which are now seen as the main representative colours of the school. They still hold a particularly special relationship with sporting activities, represented by various school chants and war cries that mention the Light Dark Blue. Recent incidents[edit] Pedophile compensation controversy[edit] In 2003, the school was involved in controversy when it attempted to recover damages from its insurer following students' claims that they had been sexually abused by Kevin Lynch, school counsellor between the 1976 and 1988.[18][19] Some 70 former students sued the school, alleging Lynch sexually abused them during counselling sessions. Rejecting out-of-court settlements, some of the victims claimed compensation in the Supreme Court of Queensland. Two former students had allegedly lodged complaints about Lynch's conduct with then headmaster of the school, Maxwell Howell, in the early 1980s and the issue was quietly investigated. However Grammar was unaware the details of the investigation had to be passed on to its insurer.[18] For failing to notify its insurer of the complaints made of Lynch, the school thus became liable for A$1.17 million in legal fees and compensation.[18] Lynch was charged in January 1997 over the abuses perpetrated at both St Paul's School (where he was subsequently employed) and Brisbane Grammar. Lynch committed suicide on 23 January 1997, the day after being charged.[20][21] Fumes exposure incident[edit] On 14 July 2010, 120 students were exposed to a chemical solvent being used in school construction works. Many of these students had been exposed for less than 20 minutes. 6 ambulance crews were dispatched to the school, where 35 students experienced sore eyes and throats as well as minor breathing difficulties. Of the students affected, 2 were hospitalised.[22] Notable alumni[edit]
