Personal Growth



At Churchie we believe our calling is to assist the development of the whole person. Churchie aims to foster growth and development in the life of every young man by providing a comprehensive range of co-curricular challenges and activities. In this way, students can grow in character, build resilience, and maximise their opportunities for achievement and improvement.
 
All boys are expected to become involved in the co-curricular programme, which fosters lifelong skills and passions to develop well-balanced, resilient citizens. A wide range of performing arts and cultural activities is also available with opportunities in music, chess, theatrical productions, art shows, film and television, photography, debating, camps, exchange programmes and tours (national and international).
 
As a member of the Greater Public Schools’ (GPS) Association of Queensland, Churchie offers a broad range of sports and activities in which students can compete and develop a strong sense of community.
 
Service is a key part of our approach to personal growth. As students come to understand that they are part of something greater than themselves, they gain value from serving those around them.

Wide-ranging opportunities allow boys to exercise leadership in both the Senior and Prep Schools as captains, prefects and student leaders. Also, a flourishing Tri-Service Cadets programme (Army, Navy and Air Force) provides excellent opportunities for students to develop leadership and practical skills, transferable throughout life.
 
Churchie’s commitment to personal growth is evident with a comprehensive array of outstanding facilities within close proximity on campus. These include major sporting facilities located on, or close to, the main campus, a first-class strength and conditioning centre accommodating the Health and Physical Education programme, personal fitness programmes and a state-of-the-art rowing facility overlooking the Brisbane River.

Inter-House, arts and sporting pursuits



There is a wide and varied sports and activities programme in which boys can challenge and extend themselves.

Inter-house competitions and carnivals combined with opportunities to participate in interstate and overseas tours are available across our broad cocurricular programme.

The programme also includes a wide range of cultural activities. Boys can participate in choir, chess, music ensembles, drama productions, art shows, debating, camps and exchange programmes. Such programmes enable boys to express and develop their creativity.

Facilities



Churchie’s commitment to personal growth is supported by a comprehensive array of outstanding facilities, all located on-campus and within easy walking distance of each other. You can arrange to visit Churchie and take a tour of the school here.

Flexible learning spaces, classrooms, labs, rehearsal and performance spaces are all close at hand at Churchie. Morris Hall, the school’s iconic hall, is home to numerous music, drama and art productions where boys express their creative talent.

Sports facilities include 10 turf sports fields onsite surrounding the Main Oval, while health and physical education, basketball and volleyball are also catered for in the contemporary sports complex, comprising two indoor sprung wooden floor full size courts and a first class strength and conditioning centre.

The aquatics centre includes three heated pools at 50, 25 and 12.5 metres and caters for swimmers of all ages and stages of development.

A state-of-the-art rowing facility overlooking the Brisbane River is also available for students along with a tennis centre which incorporates seven courts and a club house.
 
At Churchie, every boy is actively encouraged to reap the benefits of participating in the sports, arts and activities provided.

It is through participation and the school’s deep commitment to the holistic growth and development of each young man, that we can realise the Making of Men.
