Always

BIS is heading into its 50th year as Queensland’s oldest progressive school, always offering another way to look at how education can grow and develop to reflect what our children need to thrive. Over time that goal has seen various progressive models from the original Summer Hill inspiration, to Sudbury Valley, into Philosophy for Children and Self Directed Learning. Each of the models has given us insights into how to improve, expand and adapt. The current Integral Theory model, with its open and inclusive perspective, welcomes all this prior learning and reflections. When you join BIS you add to this legacy. Please travel through Always and learn about these roots.
