The Seniors Group of the Boys’ Brigade, catering to ages 12-18, is a commendable initiative tailored for high school boys. This program is strategically crafted to address the diverse needs of teenage boys, encompassing physical fitness, outdoor skills, cultural awareness, and spiritual enrichment.

In the realm of physical development, the program actively involves boys in diverse activities such as running, gymnastics, rough games, and other demanding tasks. This not only fosters a profound appreciation for fitness but also serves as a weekly outlet for releasing excess energy. The significance of these activities lies in their contribution to effective male bonding.

The outdoor skills aspect of the Boys’ Brigade Seniors Group focuses on imparting essential survival skills in natural settings. From camping and bush survival to navigation and environmental awareness, boys are equipped with the knowledge to thrive in nature.

The community engagement of the Boys’ Brigade seniors reflects selflessness and a strong spirit of community service. Through active participation in events like Anzac Day, meals on wheels, and clean-up days, they exemplify true leadership as service to others. Their dedication to community improvement serves as an inspiration to all.

Spiritual growth is another vital component, aiming to cultivate a robust faith in God and instill spiritual habits that foster a deeper connection. Activities like prayer, worship, and service allow boys the freedom to participate according to their comfort levels.

Lastly, the Boys’ Brigade Seniors Group facilitates meaningful rites of passage, guiding boys through the transition into adulthood. Achievements such as completing a multi-day hike, successfully finishing a leadership development course, or attaining the Kings Badge are celebrated in significant ceremonies, witnessed by peers, family, and meaningful representatives.

In summary, the Boys’ Brigade Seniors Group stands as an exceptional program fostering the holistic development of teenage boys. From physical fitness to spiritual growth, each facet is meticulously designed to mould young men into resilient, compassionate, and responsible adults. The completion of rites of passage not only instils a sense of accomplishment but also cultivates deep pride in their newfound skills and abilities.

Leadership Development [top]

As boys move up through their Senior years, they focus on leader development through Leadership Courses and also by taking on leadership roles within their group such as getting involved in the term planning, running games and leading devotions, calling parade and drill.

Seniors showing good leadership skills within their Company are promoted into Non Commissioned Officer Ranks such as Lance Corporal, Corporal, Sergeant and Staff Sergeant. Their leaders are referred to as Officers and have the ranks of Captain, Lieutenant and Warrant Officer.

Child Safety [top]

All our adult volunteers hold a current Blue Card and have a current qualification in the Safe Environments Child Safety Program.

Cost [top]

All groups set their own costs and the price varies. Many BB companies are registered with the Fair Play Program and vouchers can be issued to qualifying children to cover fees. You will find that belonging to BB will be much cheaper than many other activities. Many churches cover expenses of the BB Company in their budget and some offer subsidies to help boys attend activities.
