BGGS podcast, Illumine, is capturing and elevating more voices within and beyond our School community.Discover Series ▻
Illumine is a podcast that shares enlightening conversation and friendly debate about Australia’s current educational landscape and the values and philosophy of the School.
For each episode, Brisbane Girls Grammar School staff and community members share researched essays, followed by in-depth conversation with our Principal, Ms Jacinda Euler.
This iteration launched in 2021, when we handed over the mic to the students of Girls Grammar to share their insights and views about topics most relevant to today’s adolescents. A chance for our students to speak directly to their classmates and the wider community, a variety of topical discussions have already been had, including our students' experience of remote learning, and a candid discussion about social media and the role that these platforms play in their daily lives.Discover Series ▻
Intended to directly address the concerns and challenges that parents in our community face, this series taps into the expertise of BGGS educators and healthcare professionals. Since launching in late 2021, the series has discussed strategies for managing stress and anxiety, explored how perceived ‘negative’ emotions such as anxiety and fear can be re-channelled for growth, and advised parents on how to help their daughters balance co-curricular activities with their academic studies, to ensure that they are getting the most out of their secondary school days, while not feeling overwhelmed.Discover Series ▻
In early 2022 we introduced a series featuring notable Girls Grammar alumnae. These thoughtful discussions aim to shine the spotlight on what these inspiring women have achieved since graduating from BGGS, explore the experiences that helped to set them on their path to success and reflect on their time as a Girls Grammar student.Discover Series ▻
