Changing Spaces:  Making a Library work in the technological age

How do we create academic spaces that are used by Boys outside of the classroom? Where is the future of school libraries going? Essential to many of these questions is this idea of creating ownership of the space, making boys feel
they’re a part of something great. If this means allowing games, eating and drinking in the library, perhaps we should be redesigning these spaces?

overview of the changes and some insight into how the school managed them.

Turning Young Men into Active Citizens

One of the key contributions education can make to our country is to raise up a generation of young people who are actively engaged as citizens. The talk will explore both the curricular and extra-curricular approaches to developing
this in the context of our country’s history, reality and future possibilities; emphasising the need to get this particular aspect right in all schools, but especially boys schools.

C5

Life Orientation and Physical Education work

The current LO/PE syllabus presents many challenges for schools which make the subject often a unhappy space in schools. I hope to present some ideas at a very practical level. My real hope is that it will open a dialogue between schools who then may be willing to share both best practise and what gives them ulcers in this challenging field.

Learning through Play

Connecting the Dots

Making the transition from school to higher education can be incredibly daunting both for students and their parents.  However, acquiring certain skills and being a little more aware of the potential challenges can make the journey a little less frightening.
