Meet our Principal

Andrew Manning

Kindergarten children excitedly exploring their surrounds . . . Primary students sharing a favourite story with their younger ‘buddy’ class . . . VET students preparing a special meal in the kitchen . . .

These are just some of the activities occurring in the daily life of our College community. Every activity, conversation, assignment and excursion is an opportunity to grow in understanding as we serve God and one another.

We are a Christian school community established by Christian parents to educate their children according to their Biblically-based beliefs. These include:

  • an affirmation of God’s sovereignty over all of life,
  • the Bible rather than culture informs our practice, and
  • parents having the Biblical responsibility to educate their children.

As a College, we desire to support parents to orient the heads, hearts and hands of their children to Christ and His Word through our shared understanding of Christian schooling.

We hope you will be encouraged to learn more about our College community. We welcome you to visit our campus, chat with our team and see for yourself how Bayside seeks to nurture each of its students.

Mr Andrew Manning — Principal

History & Purposes

Building The Vision

In 1980, a group of pioneering Christian families started an Association with the vision of establishing a Christian school in Frankston to educate their children in a formal environment supportive of their own Christian beliefs. With the help of God, the original families realised their dream in 1982, opening Frankston Christian School with an initial enrolment of 39 students.

The School Moved To Its Current Site Two Years Later...

And is now transforming an adjacent parcel of land into our new Secondary campus.

Bayside Christian College continues to provide an education committed to its founding purposes, helping parents equip their children for effective, God-glorifying lives as Christians in the world by:

Leading students into the service of God and of others as a thankful response to the work of God in Christ...

Nurturing in students the development of a Biblical understanding of the world and of life...

Establishing an educational environment that is characterised by faith, hope, love, joy, peace and service...

Helping students to discover and develop their own God-given abilities and to recognise and respect those of others...

Showing students that knowing their strengths and limitations, is part of achieving a realistic, positive self-image...

Promoting A Striving For Excellence In Their Lives!
