Principal's Welcome

Principal's Welcome

I love being the principal of Bayside P-12 College. I don’t know of any other job that allows me to interact with such an interesting and diverse range of people. I engage with students who are keen to learn, polite and good humoured. I am surrounded by passionate staff and supportive families who guide and challenge our students in achieving their best. Students at Bayside benefit from the advantages of being part of one large college while experiencing the nurturing sense of community that our three smaller campuses provide. Our college culture focuses on student learning within a strong pastoral care framework. We want our students to graduate as well rounded men and women. To achieve this we provide our students with the opportunity to participate in an extensive range of activities in leadership, community service, sporting competitions and performing arts programs. As a community we value and teach our students to:

  • Be a learner
  • Be respectful
  • Be responsible

I invite you to spend some time looking through our website but in my opinion if you are trying to learn more about our college then the best thing to do is to visit us and meet our students. Andrew Harnett – College Principal
