2019 IBSC Annual Conference in Montréal

Everyone at Selwyn House School is thrilled to be hosting the 2019 IBSC annual conference on June 26-29, 2019. The International Boys’ Schools Coalition is a non-profit group of schools devoted to the development and betterment of boys’ education. Through hosting conferences, both regionally and internationally, the IBSC brings educators and students together to discuss effective teaching methods for guiding boys on their journey to manhood and personal fulfillment.

Selwyn House will be hosting over 650 delegates in 2019 with the goal of exploring the healing of art and the art of healing in boys’ lives.

A team from SHS were in Australia in July for the 2018 Annual Conference. 
While in Australia, the SHS team also proudly invited all the IBSC delegates to come to Montreal in 2019, luring the conference delegates with an incredible invitational video made by and with Selwyn House students, faculty and Old Boys, with a special welcoming message from The Right Honourable Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada.

We are excited to explore the creative and healing power of the arts and their ability to promote wellness in the lives of boys. The conference theme of “Boys and the Arts: Great Minds, Big Hearts” will attract inspiring speakers and workshop presenters who will focus on all areas of the creative arts, mental health and the potential of the arts to promote healing, wellness, and personal change.
