The Well-Rounded Learner

Ad Altiora Ship :: Blue Mountains Grammar School, Sydney

Children learn from every aspect of their lives and no one thing they learn in their youth is more important than any other. Developing brains require movement of every kind as well as artistic and creative activities just as much as they require extensive reading. Blue Mountains Grammar Junior School’s range of cocurricular activities are designed to develop young brains, ignite the passions and grow their character and capability.
