It was my pleasure to attend the Year 12 Valedictory Dinner on Monday evening. It was a fabulous evening as we celebrated the completion of Secondary schooling for our 49 graduating students, who also reflected a little on their journey. It was delightful to hear the School Captains and their parents speak with respect on their journeys with Bayside Christian College. Thank you to Mrs Curtis-Morris and Mrs Cooper and your team for the wonderful celebration.

This week, I was informed by the Federal Member for Dunkley, Mr Chris Crewther MP, that the College had been successful in its application for a capital grant to assist in building a new Science Facility. The new Science Facility will be built in between the new Trades Skills Centre and Secondary Classroom Building, with construction to commence during Term 1, 2018.
