Learn by Doing

The Bayside Christian College teaching and learning strategies are aimed at helping students to be active life-long learners. In modelling this, teaching and learning extends beyond written work to include engagement in activities and endeavours that provide engaging hands-on practical learning experiences for students. We provide Christian Education K-12.

Mission & Vision

Bayside Christian College seeks to inspire in its students, Christian character through the intellectual, spiritual and cultural development of every student in a caring Christian environment, so that they may become active change agents through faith, in their local and the wider community

Principal's Welcome

At Bayside Christian College, we strongly believe that it is the quality of the human relationships and the beliefs that exist within a school that define its character, its feel and the essential teaching and learning relationships that are formed.

Schools of substance are often defined by the quality of relationships that exist between students, parents and staff. At Bayside Christian College, we value these essential partnerships in the education of each and every child. Students take educational risks, dare to challenge themselves and aim to succeed, when they feel supported in a caring and nurturing environment with dedicated and highly experienced teachers. This is of the utmost importance at Bayside Christian College, as we continue our journey to be the school of choice on the beautiful Fraser Coast.

Our College is a Christian School – one in which we deliver a student-centred, creative and engaging education of the highest standard, founded in a Christian worldview. Our Christian beliefs permeate and inform our engagement, support our calling as educators, and give us the higher purpose of educating and supporting the young lives entrusted to us. These beliefs help us to make sense of the complexity of life and draw us to understand God’s design and purpose for us.

International research indicates that it is the quality of teaching within the classroom that has the greatest impact on student achievement. At Bayside Christian College we base our teaching and learning strategies on leading international research. This enables our students from Prep to Year 12 to think creatively and learn to apply their skills and knowledge to new and real life-related situations. This leading approach to teaching and learning focuses on the individual student, thereby better providing for their individual needs.

Whilst proud of the academic record that Bayside Christian College has maintained, it is our aim is to develop young men and women and to inspire Christian character. The College strives to achieve this by challenging students to develop an understanding of God’s plan for them, developing the intellectual character necessary to become passionate about the ongoing pursuit of learning; to have the skills and confidence to succeed in an increasingly complex world; and to become committed to creating positive futures for the good of all, through faith, leadership and active service in their communities.

The College caters for students with a diverse range of talents, interests, needs and academic abilities, through its rigorous and comprehensive academic program, our learning enrichment program, diverse co-curricular activities, and our strong pastoral care system. Our College boasts leading educators, committed to ongoing professional development, and highly dedicated non-teaching staff committed to the achievement of the College’s mission.

Choosing a school is perhaps the most important decision that a parent will ever make. Every child and young adult deserves the highest standard of education to support and encourage them to achieve their personal best; to develop the essential qualities that enable them to act with purpose and character; and to possess those much-needed values to operate within the moral framework of an ethical community.

Our College is a thriving and dynamic environment, one with an assortment of outstanding educational opportunities and offerings. While websites are useful for the dissemination of information, they do not fully enable the unique essence of a school to be understood and appreciated and so, while I encourage you to peruse our site, I invite you to visit our campus for a personal tour, and an opportunity to see how our community can help in the education and growth of your child.

 I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you to our community at Bayside Christian College.
