Our College opened in 2018 with students from Prep to Year 8. The College continues to grow as we add a year of learning with Year 12 commencing in 2022. The College builds on the outstanding education provided by Bannockburn Primary School since 1892.
Bannockburn College provides quality educational opportunities for students from its designated neighbourhood across Golden Plains Shire. We have a fantastic contemporary facility with purposefully designed learning spaces, featuring specialist areas including wood, plastics and food technologies, science labs and environmental centre. These spaces are built around and within the Learning Communities. Our Learning Communities provide social and emotional wellbeing for individuals, as well as maximising the flexibility and capacity of teachers to meet the educational needs of every student.
Our College community’s vision is to inspire a passion for learning and a commitment to excellence. The College has dedicated professional staff who lead a strong teaching and learning program based on the Victorian Curriculum with a major emphasis on English and Maths. Our teachers are student focussed with a commitment to curriculum extension activities to extend, engage and challenge all our students.
We have clear teaching and learning guidelines and continue to develop a structured learning continuum that caters for all (to the individual child’s point of need). Our differentiated curriculum underpins our planning with strategies to support teachers to identify and teach to each individual child’s needs.
We believe that all students can learn to their fullest potential. Our students will develop their individual talents and be actively engaged in their learning. They will have the opportunity to be curious and creative. We will collectively and collaboratively build a safe, orderly learning environment that promotes high standards. The pursuit of excellence is the shared responsibility of the whole college community. We will provide students with the tools needed for “Learning for Life”.George Porter PRINCIPAL
