As a Methodist school, we have a conscious focus on the “Saints Honour”, namely to 'Honour God, Honour others and Honour self". Our “seven pillars” support the life of every boy at the Boys' College: academics, sport, culture, community service, leadership, outdoor education and spirituality. Through these pillars, we encourage each boy to realise his maximum potential as a citizen of significance of this school and in our country, in a stimulating and safe environment. Our mission, purpose and passion is to walk the path towards manhood with our boys, and support them as they emerge as “great young men”, ready to serve, lead, contribute and make a difference in our world and in the lives of others.
