About Our School

Bairnsdale Christian College is dedicated to teaching students within a loving and caring environment. Our teaching method is grounded within a biblical context, leaning on teaching and wisdom from the Christian worldview.

Bairnsdale Christian College is...

More than a school, it is a community. A community of parents, teachers, grandparents, friends and students. BCC is a learning community focused on helping each child grow and develop to their full potential in every aspect of their lives. We celebrate each child’s uniqueness and desire to help each child develop their own unique gifts and personal qualities.

We believe each child is created to thrive in life and influence the world around them. Just as each child is an individual so is their learning adventure. Bringing their unique mix of passions and skills, each child joins a community of learners and professionals and engage in broad learning opportunities. As BCC learners, we are growing and learning to become knowledgeable, resilient, thinkers, leaders, communicators, problem solvers, creative, compassionate, discerning, risk-takers, responsive and balanced.

CORE VALUES

Bairnsdale Christian College holds to three core values of love, wisdom and integrity. These shared values are woven through everything we do at the College from the Board to the classroom. The values describe how we conduct ourselves within our College community and character qualities that enable students to participate well in adulthood.

Love

Being recognised for our love of God, people and the environment.

We encourage our students to understand that love is a conscious choice. Love is valuing each individual and is demonstrated by being supportive and encouraging, respecting the perspectives of others, and placing the needs of others above one's own.

Wisdom

Being able to understand the world and life from a Biblical perspective.

We encourage our students to pursue their personal best in all spheres of life. Wisdom naturally unpacks into knowledge and character which supports the development of high-trust relationships and success in life. It is demonstrated through the ability to interpret knowledge from different perspectives and apply it through a biblical lens.

Integrity

“Displaying the Godly characteristics of honesty, faithfulness and justice.”

We encourage our students to conduct themselves with authenticity and honesty in all they do. Integrity is intentionally choosing personal behaviors and actions. This is demonstrated by students being dependable and following through on commitments. Being open and honest when communicating with others and holding themselves accountable and owning up to their shortcomings.
