Central to Bayview College’s ethos is the expectation that all Bayview College students will utilise their character strengths and contribute their rich and varied talents in the classroom, on the sporting field, on the stage or in the wider community. Students are continually challenged to give their best. Based on contemporary research, our programs enable students to achieve their personal best in academic, cultural, personal, spiritual and sporting areas when they are individually cared for, encouraged and valued. Bayview College’s wellbeing program underpins all of our academic programs and is critical in helping to shape well-rounded, self-assured individuals.
The College Chaplain and Student Services Team assist students requiring support for personal, social or academic reasons in a confidential and safe environment. Through these services, we work in partnership with families, teachers, peers and other professionals to provide students with the skills and support for them to make informed and responsible decisions about their own wellbeing.
The counselling and chaplaincy programs are of a voluntary nature and students and parents can use these services at their discretion and in confidence.
We regularly connect data from students as a “Pulse Check” so that we can monitor how they are travelling at any stage throughout the year. The SKODEL pulse check provides us with timely, informative and confidential information that assist us to build a strong picture of a students wellbeing profile.
Bayview College is committed to the safety and well-being of all children and young people. This will be the primary focus of our care and decision-making.

Every person involved in Bayview College has a responsibility to understand the important and specific role he/she plays individually and collectively to ensure that the wellbeing and safety of all children and young people are at the forefront of all they do and every decision they make.
