Below is just a snapshot of the many different aspects to school life at BCCS. From classroom activities and sports carnivals to the Kinder and Meals on Wheels programs, our students share in a wide variety of experiences, activities and events.

Class Structure

Our four classes are arranged as composite classes with about 20 students in each class. Class arrangements vary each year depending on the number of students in each year level.

In 2017, the arrangements are:

  • Prep with Mrs Favero and Mrs Hamer
  • 1/2 with Mrs Brehaut and Mrs Twining
  • 3/4 with Mrs Eveleigh
  • 5/6 with Mr Bazley and Mr Micallef

Special Needs Support

Each of our classes has its own dedicated Teacher’s Aide. These staff members work with and encourage all of the students, but especially focus on helping students who need further assistance, guidance or specific special needs. BCCS also employs a staff member who is dedicated to supporting students who are not learning at the same speed as their peers, through concentrated weekly group sessions, where they learn and practice techniques to help them improve their skills and knowledge.

Sports Carnivals

We join with other small local schools to participate in Cross Country and Athletics events.

Students are then able to progress to District, Division and State levels of competition.

School Camps

Students from Prep-6 always enjoy and look forward to their yearly camps/sleepovers.

The younger classes start with movie nights at school, progressing to overnight and multiple night trips, up to the much anticipated week-long Grade 6 trip to Melbourne.

Grade Six Leadership Program

All of our Grade 6 students are treated as leaders and are involved in leadership development activities throughout the year.

As the eldest children in our school they are expected to be good role models and take care of their fellow students.

Community Programs

Each year BCCS students are involved in a number of community programs, both in the local area and beyond. Over the years this has included:

  • Meals on Wheels (Bairnsdale)
  • Cows Create Careers (an initiative of Dairy Australia)
  • Run for Bibles (in support of Bible League)
  • Jump Rope for Heart (an initiative of the Heart Foundation)
  • Operation Christmas Child (an initiative of Samaritan’s Purse)

Students are also regularly involved in the Bairnsdale Christmas Parade, the Bairnsdale Show and visits to local Aged Care facilities to perform for the residents.
