Secondary Moments

New Campus Site Now Open

Federal member for Canning Andrew Hastie with Austin Cove Baptist College Secondary Principal Orlando dos Santos cutting the ribbon and offically declaring the new permanent site in Austin Lakes Open!


The Secondary Campus came alive to the carnival sounds of food and fun as students marked RUOK Day. Yellow was worn somewhere by many students and all were encouraged to think about the issues surrounding suicide in our community.

Swimming Carnival

Staff and students were in the perfect place to be on a hot summers' day as team factions cheered for their champions at the 2016 Annual Austin Cove Baptist College Senior Inter-house Swimming Carnival.

Participation was great again this year as most found a way to contribute... some in more vital ways than others! Lunch was prepared, BBQ-style by Mr Casey and assistant, who cooked for the entire senior college.

As staff and students cooled off in the fantastic 50 metre pool at Mandurah's newest Aquatic facility, known locally as "The MARC", officials keep cool in the shade... or even air-conditioned comfort... as they tallied the results.

The College Radio Station - ACFM, which is soon to be expanding its' coverage from South Yunderup and Ravenswood into Pinjarra, had Year 10 Reporter, and Student Station Manager, Claudia Bakitch on the job!

Hi, my name is EMILY GREY. I’m in Year 4C and my teacher is Mr Rankin. I started at Austin Cove Baptist College in Kindy, in 2011. When I am older I would like to be a Classroom or Sports Teacher. At school I like playing Sport and doing Physical Education. (Emily is the Fly Champion in Mr Newby’s Sport’s class) At home I love my trampoline and bouncing on it. I enjoy reading books. (Especially “Max and Liz” stories) I like the cool colours, green, blue and yellow too.

6V Video Project

Austin Cove Baptist College 6V class have worked incredibly hard to produce this video, based on the book Holes by Louis Sachar. The students really enjoyed reading the book because it is essentially about young people like themselves; trying to find themselves, trying to fit in, learning from their mistakes, developing their characters and finding purpose.


Inter-House Athletics

Primary recently enjoyed a fun-filled day of Athletics at Sir Ross McClarty Oval in Pinjarra.


Primary Science Week


Primary Science Week was an exciting time in Primary as students made new and exciting discoverys with practical demonstrations throughout the week.       


New Play Equipment

A huge thanks to the Forum Shopping Centre in Mandurah for the donation of play equipment to Primary.

As renovations get underway at the shopping centre, the surplus structure was dismantled and brought to Austin Cove by a dedeicated and heroric group of parents.

Water Fun Day

While Upper Primary went to Pinjarra for the swimming carnival, the Lower Primary, with some willing parents, stayed at school and had a heap of fun with water.



Sensory Garden

Miss Yapp's Year 5 and 6 students, with help from parents, have created a "Sensory Garden" on the old demountables site. The creativity of many has transformed what was a wasteland into an interesting and interactive garden.
