BUNDOORA SECONDARY COLLEGE

Rigour, Respect, Relationships, Responsibility, Resilience

Bundoora Secondary College is a vibrant and exciting place. As a teaching professional of more than 30 years I am proud to be the Principal at Bundoora Secondary College, a place with an exceptionally strong culture of learning. 

Bundoora Secondary College is committed to being a school for our community. It is home to students from a diversity of backgrounds and cultures. By encouraging all students to strive for excellence this college is dedicated to preparing all students for a successful and meaningful life as critical thinkers. Each student will acquire the skills and desire to make a difference. The college provides a welcoming and friendly environment treating each individual with respect.

I am proud of our talented students and of our quality teachers who are highly motivated and seek to extend the students in the classroom. We work together to form a vibrant, positive and supportive learning environment with high expectations for academic performance of all learners. We respond to individual learning styles and provide a diverse curriculum to develop students’ individual talents. There is a strong focus on success and the pursuit of excellence in all fields of endeavour.

We provide a diversity of pathways and a wide range of learning options. We offer individual support to each-and-every student to help them find their strengths, define their opportunities and pursue their goals. Here at Bundoora we have structures in place to ensure that each student transitions to an appropriate further educational or vocational setting.

Many students undertake Year 12 subjects in Year 11 and Year 10 students study one Year 11 subject. In partnership with ACU University we offer two university subjects which are undertaken as part of the student’s VCE Certificate and counted towards their ATAR score (the units in exercise-science – pathwaying to Exercise Physiology or Physical Education and health science – pathwaying directly into Nursing). Enrolling in these university subjects provide our secondary students with access to resources and support from the university, they are HECs free (saving about $1200 per unit)  and will provide “recognition of prior learning” if they articulate into the same pathway next year. The students opportunity to enrol in a tertiary program in the same pathway next year is strengthened through their successful completion of the subject while in year 12. 

We also offer an extensive range of Vocational Education and Training (VET) subjects and the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). Students are given the opportunity to experience an exceptional range of specialist programs and co-curricular activities including a strong performing arts program with music and drama, student leadership, debating and sports teams.

We encourage you to become involved in your child’s education as a full partner of our learning community. I believe the best schools know the needs and hopes of their students. I know that like so many parents and students who have attended BSC, you will be very satisfied. I am confident that in deciding to send your son or daughter to this College you are making the right choice.

Thank you for your interest in our College.
