Established in 1988, Bacchus Marsh Grammar provides a stimulating educational program and a supportive and encouraging pastoral care system focused on involving students in the life of the school, developing their talents and offering scope for leadership.
Facilities: Located on the one attractive campus, the separate Junior and Senior School buildings include a hall, library, canteen, performing and visual arts centres, computer laboratories and a recently completed science and technology centre.
Curriculum: A broad and comprehensive curriculum comprises all the basic core subjects (including the Humanities, Mathematics and Sciences, Arts, Japanese and French), together with a range of electives in Years 9 and 10 (including Graphics, Information Technology, Media Studies and Landscape Gardening). VCE subjects include all the prerequisites for tertiary entrance.
Sport: Regular inter-house sporting competitions are held in addition to inter-school competition as a member of the Galway group of independent schools. Many recreational sports are also offered.
Extra-curricular activities: The range of activities includes outdoor education camps, instrumental and choral music programs, junior and senior Rock Eisteddfod, drama, debating, public speaking and community service.
Student welfare programs: Pastoral care is the responsibility of grade teachers in the Junior School. In the Senior School, a vertical age-group house structure means that each individual student’s welfare is assured and that communication with parents is facilitated. Discipline is based on a set of articulated rights and responsibilities and is maintained in a fair and firm manner. Students with a variety of special needs are catered for and older children are expected to take some responsibility for the leadership and care of the younger members of the school community.
