The Bayside Family Network is the College community care and support arm of Bayside Christian College. Established in 2018, the Bayside Family Network engages with the College community to connect, build and support families. We do this by creating opportunities for parents/carers, staff and the broader College community to connect with one another and build solid relationships in a Christ-centred environment.
The Network currently provides care and support to both Bayside Christian College staff and families through the following programs:
- Prayer Group
- Playgroup Victoria
- Meals Program
- Educational Workshops
- Class Carer Support
- Uniform Exchange
The network is currently overseen by the College Chaplain Pastor Kathy Scott, and is supported by a group of committeed volunteer parents. Parent/carer participation is welcomed at Network events and with organisation.
Parent participation is a great way to play a more active role in your child’s education. There are a variety of ways to become involved, and many of the programs offered at Bayside Christian College require parental support. In order to comply with the College Child Protection Policy, parents/carers who wish to assist in the classroom or attend excursions and camps are required to obtain a Working with Children Check. See www.workingwithchildren.vic.gov.au for application information.
Bayside Christian College is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all children and young people. All volunteers at the College, including parents/carers, are required to abide by the Child Safety Code of Conduct, and to sign the Child Safety Volunteer Agreement.
Please note that teachers may not accept offers to help without prior notification as per College policy. Helpers must sign themselves in at the College Office in accordance with Emergency Management Procedures.
