St Laurence’s College is a Catholic School for boys in the Edmund Rice tradition located in Brisbane's Southbank precinct. Established in 1915 the College currently has over 1900 students in Years 5 -12.
Rich in history and tradition,the College offers a dynamic educational community for boys and young men that maximizes their potential to become active contributors in an ever-changing society.
Learning at St Laurence’s College is student-centred, where active engagement occurs in dynamic and relevant learning environments that enable the learner to acquire new knowledge, deepen their understanding and apply concepts to new contexts or ideas.
The 21st Century skills and discipline-specific literacies form the foundation of the metacognitive processes that lead to mastery within a field of study.
Our students are encouraged to embrace all activities as an opportunity to expand their experiences, further develop existing skills and find new pathways for their Lauries Journey.
Involvement in all aspects of school life increases each student’s sense of belonging, expands friendship groups, benefits curriculum performance and student behaviour, and leads to higher levels of motivation and engagement.
The Lauries Journey seeks to ensure that every boy feels known and valued for being the person that he is.
It seeks to equip him with the knowledge, skills and qualities to develop his character, deepen his faith, widen his friendships and strengthen his self-belief in his own potential.
It seeks to establish good relationships; it is within the context of meaningful relationships between student and teacher that true learning takes place.
