In 2020, Brighton Grammar welcomed a group from the Association of Danish Pupils.

The aim of the group’s 14 day tour was to examine student voice in Australian schools.

The students heard from various staff about student leadership roles, as well as student led initiatives such as the Legacy Project, to programs such as Year 11 Outdoor Education Leadership, First Horizons, Tomorrow Man and student Coaching.

The group was particularly interested in single-sex schooling, as there are only coeducational schools in Denmark.
