Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Northern Bay College – a school where students are achieving outstanding results and even more importantly contributing positively to their community.

Before I continue I would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land on which our school sits, the Waddawurrung People, and pay respect to their Elders past, present and emerging. May we continue to work together to strengthen our relationship within our school community and respectfully recognise all cultures that make up our diverse community and share our values.

As you will learn when you navigate through our website Northern Bay College is a comprehensive Prep – Year 12 school spread across five Campuses in the Geelong suburbs of Corio and Norlane. We are also fortunate to host the Geelong Industry Trade Training Centre (GITTC), manage our own Family and Early Learning Centre, have our own School Camp site – Staughton Vale Oudoror Education Centre and be part of the Our Place initiative through the Korayn Birallee Community Centre.

Northern Bay College offers a comprehensive curriculum program for all students where Student Voice and Agency (the understanding and capacity to manage your own learning) is held in high regard and used as the stimulus for the planning and program development our staff complete. These curriculum programs are complimented by some excellent co-curricular programs such as SEED – our specialist sports program; IMPACT – an immersive and experiential program that covers all aspects of the Arts; Extended School Day program – which provides our students with after school experiences that enhance their classroom experiences to name but a few.

At Northern Bay College our best asset without doubt are our amazing and inspiring students. Students who work to uphold and demonstrate our school values of Growth, Persistence, Collaboration and Kindness in everything they do. We have no doubt that when you meet our students and spend some time with them that you will come to understand that the spirit and the feeling that is unique to our school emanates for this wonderful group of young people. Take some time to meet some of our students through our growing library of program videos: P-2 and 3-6.

As principal of Northern Bay College I am so fortunate to work amongst these wonderful students and alongside the outstanding team of educators who bring this work together everyday. This experience makes me supremely confident that your experience with our school will be just the same.

On behalf of everyone within the Northern Bay College community we say welcome and thank you for taking some time to learn more about our school.
