Positive Masculinity

BGS2032 February 14th, 2022

Brighton Grammar School has actively linked with world-class authorities on boys’ education to launch a range of academic and wellbeing initiatives to develop a positive school culture that empowers students in their studies and lives.

A key initiative is the Positive Masculinity project, developed in conjunction with Orygen, a leader in youth mental health, based at the University of Melbourne.

This project is the first of its kind in the world. It uses a best practice model to help young men and boys develop into respectful men.

The framework supports the development of healthy beliefs in BGS boys and boys generally, related to masculinity, mental health and wellbeing, and empowers them towards self-health practices.
