At Bayside Christian College, we partner with families as children journey from Kindergarten to Year 12 and beyond. Throughout that journey, we sow the truths of God into the daily lives of our students.
We provide many opportunities and educational pathways for each child to thrive, supporting each student to discover and develop their God-given abilities. This is reflected in our equal commitment to both VCE and VCE VM, and the opportunities provided by our Trades Skills Centre.
Our Early Learning Centre offers a unique kindergarten program for 3 and 4-year-olds. We combine a Christian program with inquiry-based learning inspired by the Reggio Emilia approach.
Our kindergarten fosters an atmosphere of play-based learning, where children are immersed in experiences and exploration to help them learn more about God and His world. We foster and encourage values of faith, hope, love, joy, peace and service.
The program of both the 3 and 4-year-old groups is informed by the five outcomes of the Victorian Early Years Learning and Development Framework: identity, community, wellbeing, learning and communication.
We provide full-day programs for both 3 and 4-year-olds:
Our Primary School provides a nurturing and positive environment for children to develop their personalities and expand their learning. God’s Word, Biblical principles and a Christian worldview shape our attitudes and actions as we interact and learn together.
In addition to daily literacy and numeracy lessons, students have the opportunity to express themselves through regular Physical Education, Art, Music, Information Technology, Indonesian and Library classes.
The Primary School engages families and the wider community through parent dinners, sporting carnivals, music showcase evenings and productions. We also celebrate Grandparents’ Day and Book Week Parade with our families each year.
Our Primary School curriculum and programs support our children to develop their mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, intellectual and social wellbeing.
Our Secondary School works alongside families to encourage and assist in the ongoing development of their children. We provide a nurturing environment where our students flourish and aspire to be their best in Christ.
Through dedicated pastoral care and personal approach, our Secondary School supports students to grow in character and resiliency during their teenage years. Our year-level Resiliency Days are a fun way of engaging students in important issues around identity and development.
Our Secondary students develop their knowledge, understanding and skills through a rich and engaging core curriculum that includes: English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities (Civics & Citizenship, Geography, History), Physical Education, Indonesian, Biblical Studies and Pastoral Care.
Bayside Christian College is committed to incorporating ICT into classes in a meaningful and cost-effective manner to support instruction and enable personalised learning.
Our Years 7-9 Chromebook Program supports our students to develop their God-given gifts, establishing an engaging learning environment that makes use of e-books and other online educational resources for collaboration and communication.
Because we recognise that online safety is an increasingly important factor in the wellbeing of our students, Bayside provides cybersafety programs and resources for students, teachers, parents and the wider community to provide safer online environments both at school and home.
Beginning in Year 10, our Secondary students have the choice to complete either the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or VCE Vocational Major (VCE VM, previously VCAL). Our Careers Coordinator provides resources and advice to assist families make decisions about educational pathways and preparing students for life after school.
Whichever path they choose, our Secondary students benefit from a wide selection of subjects and learning opportunities, small class sizes and dedicated study spaces. We teach all our subjects from a Christian worldview, encouraging students to understand and respond to the world through the perspective of God’s truth.
Our VCE VM (previously VCAL) students participate in compulsory learning strands at College including: Literacy and Numeracy, Work Related Skills, Industry Specific Skills and Personal Development Skills; and complete a Certificate II in Active Volunteering. They also complete a VET course at TAFE or other registered training organisation one day per week, and undertake a part-time apprenticeship, traineeship or work placement.
