“To develop young men who can lead and serve with faith and integrity”
These qualities have been deliberately chosen because they reflect the sought after outcomes for the young men who will graduate from Moreton Bay Boys College.
The College will strive to develop faith in our boys, realised by nurturing such qualities as confidence, trustworthiness, reliability, and conviction – important qualities for men who will seek to provide a significant contribution to any relationship, association or organisation of which they are to be part.
The College will place great store in personal integrity with emphasis on honesty, truthfulness, honour and sincerity, absolutely desirable traits that transcend all relationships, vocations and professions.
Moreton Bay Boys College strives to be a leading internationally minded school that offers its boys an innovative, broadly based educational experience. Our philosophy is built on the foundation of Christian values and aims to develop each boy’s critical thinking; and individual abilities, equipping them with the skills necessary to be successful, productive and responsible global citizens.
Our school community incorporates the core values of:
- Faith and integrity
- learning and engagement
- and accountability, and these underpin everything we do.
The College has adopted leadership and service as the fundamental features of our program as they encapsulate so much of what is desirable in young men.
- Leadership begins with courage; courage to make a difference, to be capable of independent thought and action and to face criticism and adversity.
- If leadership begins with courage, then leadership is sustained by a positive attitude even under less favourable conditions. A leader has an obligation to look forward with hope. Attitude determines how a young man will interact with other people and how he views himself.
- Finally, a real leader does not see leadership as an end in itself, but as a means to an end – and the end, the purpose of leadership, is service. Our young people will be encouraged to accept fully trust placed in them and to put sense of service before sense of self.
In brief, Moreton Bay Boys’ College strives to develop our boys into young men of faithful service, leadership and integrity, while at MBBC – and into the future.
