Location Profile

INTRODUCTION
Bayside P-12 College is a large multi-campus co-educational college serving the community of the City of Hobsons Bay in Melbourne's western metropolitan area. The college consists of a Year P-9 Campus located in Altona North, a Year 7-9 campus located at Williamstown and a Year 10 - 12 campus in Newport. The college has a multi-cultural student population.

GUIDING PRINCIPLES
The college is committed to:
* Providing a comprehensive curriculum that meets the needs of all students;
* Providing a friendly, safe and disciplined environment in which students are able to value and enjoy learning;
* Encouraging and celebrating student success and achievement;
* Developing skills and knowledge that will enable students to live in a rapidly changing and increasingly technological society, to show leadership, to act co-operatively, to demonstrate self discipline and to be socially aware;
* Encouraging the participation of parents, students and staff in the full life of the college; and
* Providing equal opportunities for all students.

CURRICULUM
Bayside P~12 College provides educational leadership in the district and the region. The college provides a comprehensive course of study for Years P-10 in the eight Learning Areas and the broadest range of VCE and VET units at Years 11- 12. The senior campus has an excellent VCAL program. Bayside College has a 1:1 student netbook program. There are support programs for integration students and other students requiring special education. Throughout the curriculum students are encouraged and expected to take an active and responsible role in their learning.

There are a range of co-curricular activities organised across the three campuses involving many students: Foundation Day, year level and adventure camps, excursions, debating, drama and band performances. The annual visit from our `sister' school in Japan (Anjo-Higashi High School), is a highlight, along with our Art and Technology show and school production. Other programs include our advance programs in surf lifesaving, bike education, wilderness photography, sport, and the Student Representative Council. Each of these activities provides an opportunity for the College to promote the social, personal and community skills of its students.

The Senior campus ensures that students have a broad range of subject choice and the flexibility for each student to select a program around their individual career aspirations. The College has developed strong links with TAFE colleges and other tertiary institutions. This provides students with access to a wide range of courses and the opportunity to combine some tertiary units with the Victorian Certificate of Education. The provision of VET units by the local cluster of schools, centered at Bayside, encourages students to broaden their options for further study. The VCE campus provides a positive young adult learning environment, which is supportive and friendly, and appropriate to the needs of VCE students. Adults and part-time students are encouraged to enroll and all students are encouraged to participate in the life of the college.

COMMUNITY
The college is an integral part of the broader local community. School facilities are regularly used by community groups in the area and this promotes awareness, support and cooperation. The college works with local industry and is supported in range of endeavours, including work experience and work education. There is a formal partnership with Mobil Altona Refinery which provides additional resources to the school and greater community support for the curriculum. The Victorian School of Languages use the Altona North campus to teach a wide range of LOTE languages on Saturday mornings.

FACILITIES
Each campus is designed to enable the delivery of the widest possible curriculum. The Altona P-9 campus and the Paisley Senior campus at Newport have both been re-built and provide state of the art student learning facilities. The Williamstown campus has an elite, select entry Tennis school providing sporting opportunites for talented students. The college has extensive facilities: three libraries, three gymnasiums and a great range of outdoor education equipment. Students have supervised access to the Internet through the classroom via student netbooks.

The school grounds are regularly maintained and upgraded to improve the school environment. Students are actively involved in this planning and development. The college utilises a wide range of local community resources such as athletic tracks, gymnasiums, swimming pools, sports complexes, Science Works, theatres, and the facilities made available by the local council and local industry.

FUTURE PLANS
The College has determined its priorities for the next three years and will undertake processes to achieve the following priorities:

* To improve student English and Mathematics levels at years 7-10.

* To improve VCE achievement levels.

* To extend pathways available to students.
