NBC moved to a three sub-school structure in 2020 to further develop the ‘One School – One Team’ ethos; which emphasises the core business of Student Learning as a focus underpinned by a strong consistent well-being framework.
Across the college, staff work in teams focussed around four Professional Learning Communities; Year P-2, Year 3-6 and Year 6-9 & Year 10-12. These teams meet regularly in Campus based groups and also as college wide groups to implement data informed strategies to support continued improvement of learning outcomes for all students.
Organisationally the college has been arranged into three sub schools for 2021 with each sub school led by a College Assistant Principal. For 2021 these sub-schools will be – Hendy P-8 Campus and Peacock P-8 Campus Sub School; Wexford P-8 Campus and Tallis P-8 Campus Sub School; Goldsworthy Year 9-12 Sub School. Additionally the College Assistant Principal – Student Enrichment Programs will lead a portfolio that includes oversight of programs that connect students with external agencies and further educational opportunities as well as providing executive leadership to NBC facilities including the NBC Family Learning Centre and the Geelong Industry Trade Training Centre.
