2)  Exciting new initiatives launched for 2020-2021

At Blue Mountains Grammar School we are growing young people who are fully equipped to meet the challenges of tomorrow, young people with hope in their hearts, purpose in their minds and courage in their lives. To achieve this we focus all that we do, including every academic and co-curricular program, on growing character; moral character and intellectual character. We seek to ensure that our students achieve the highest academic outcomes possible for them whilst also ensuring they are becoming adaptable young people of integrity with the capacity to communicate, collaborate and reflect. We aim to equip them with a comprehensive suite of learning dispositions that will enable them to flourish in a world of fast-paced change.

We have recently announced the introduction of a range of new initiatives directed towards these goals for students in Years 5 to 8.  These new initiatives retain the benefits of our unique Performing Arts and Cultural Studies enrichment courses currently offered and add targeted STEM modules (Years 5 to 8) and Expedition Time (Years 7 and 8).

To learn more about the new programs we are introducing in Stage 3 (Years 5 and 6) and Stage 4 (Years 7 and 8) from 2020, please download the brochures published below:

3)  The Altiora Magazine - a biannual journal of BMGS

The School publishes The Altiora magazine twice yearly, at the conclusion of each Semester.  The Altiora provides an overview of the highlights of the semester, from students' achievements to sporting outcomes and Alumni news.

As BMGS continues to move towards environmental sustainability and reduce the School’s impact on the environment, we have transitioned the biannual Altiora magazine to an electronic, flipbook version. 

The Semester 1 (Vol 70), 2019 edition may be viewed via this link.

The Semester 2 (Vol 71), 2019 edition may be viewed via this link.

5)  Online Learning At Blue Mountains Grammar School

As we enter an exciting new phase of online delivery of learning and curriculum at Blue Mountains Grammar School due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we wish to reassure families that all BMGS Staff are working hard to ensure that the learning opportunities the School is providing online, is either equal to, or exceeds, the already high standard of education that our Staff deliver at BMGS.

With this aim in mind, we have launched our Online Learning at Blue Mountains Grammar School platform, which will provide all relevant infomation in one convenient site and accessible to our School community via this simple link.

Resources will continue to be regularly added and updated on this platform, to ensure the site is hosting the latest information our students need to succeed in their studies.  Parents are encouraged to visit this ste and use it as the first point of reference if they have any questions about their child's online learning program.

If you have any questions regarding this platform or its content, please do not hesitate to contact our Director of Curriculum, Mr. Tristan Forsyth, via email at tforsyth@bmgs.nsw.edu.au
