Primary Principal - Keith Newby

 

Primary Principal

Welcome to the 2017 school year. It promises to be a year of change and growth for us as a College as the secondary school continues to expand onto our permanent site and the primary school expands into some of the vacated facilities. This of course is only a temporary measure for us in Primary, as we too will be moving to the new site sometime in the not too distant future.

In the meantime, we are here to serve our school community as a professional team of educators and administrators. We are justifiably proud of our happy and cooperative environment in which teachers have the opportunity to teach and students have the right to learn.  Our Core Values of Courage, Persistence and Respect (CPR) emphasise our commitment to the holistic development of each child; Academically, Physically, Emotionally and Spiritually.

Austin Cove Baptist College is a community with 312 students in the Primary School and 248 students in the Secondary School.  The Primary School is double streamed from Kindergarten to Year Six. As you browse our website you will gain some understanding of what we do that ensures our teaching and learning environment is child focussed, pedagogically sound, creative and based on a partnership with our parents and wider community.

Along with the Secondary Principal, Mr Orlando dos Santos, I encourage us all to see our educational community as “Two Schools – One College” – a College in which students can journey from Kindergarten right through to graduation at the completion of Year Twelve.

Primary Goings On

Primary Colour Run

The recent Primary Colour-Run was a fantastic afternoon of fun, water, paint, messy clothes and loud music. With parents ambushing children with water pistols, the local fire-brigade hosing runners down, and a very soapy foam machine we all had such a wonderful time raising funds for the P&F.

Artist of the Week - Oliver Caldwell

Hi my name is Oliver Caldwell.

I’m in Year 5V and my teacher is Mr Lee. I started at ACBC in Year 1.

My family lives on a 16 acre farm and when I'm older I would like to be an Apiarist. I enjoy riding my motor bike around the track on our farm and at school I like Art and Science.

Fathers Day

Week 7 was a special week at Kindy.  We invited our Dad’s, Grandad’s, Pop’s and Poppa’s to Kindy to celebrate Fathers day together.  We all had lots of fun, especially constructing special aeroplanes and taking them on to the oval for a race.  Many thanks go to all our wonderful Fathers for making the afternoon so special.

Primary Inter-House Athletics

The recent Inter-house Athletic Carnival was a wonderful day. Congratulations to the students, parents and teachers for making it such a special day of fun and competition. It was the first time we had our Kindergarten, Pre-Primary and Year One & Two students join the older years. A particular thank you to Miss Shellie King and Mr Gareth Rankin for organising the program and ensuring the day ran so smoothly. See Results HERE

Primary students recently planted 200 tree seedlings at the High School Campus.

The seedlings were supplied by Men of the Trees in Rockingham, and a team from Bunnings Halls Head helped to plant 12 established trees. A big thanks to Mandurah Toyota for their support in providing prizes and tree guards.
