Bairnsdale Secondary College is sited on Gunai-Kurnai land and has approximately 1170 students enrolled drawing on local communities. Over 60% of these students travel to school on buses.

The Student Family Occupation Density is currently 0.59 indicating that the college population is classified as low-middle socio-economic when compared to schools across Victoria. Ten percent of the school population is of indigenous descent.

The Bairnsdale Secondary College embraces their entire school community and the following values:

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Resilience

Our vision is to create a learning community with a focus on improving teaching practice through ongoing performance development so that students’ outcomes improve.

There are three Learning Hubs at the College. The Hubs are named in the Gunai Kurnai language to symbolise students’ journey through the College:

  • Year 7 – Wargomerrin (Morning)
  • Year 8-9 – Wurrin (Day)
  • Years 10, 11 & 12 – Malgobilia (Night)

Each Hub is supported by an Assistant Principal, Leading Teachers, Coordinators, Education Support Staff, Learning Support Assistants and Student Wellbeing team.

The Malgobilia team also integrates VCAL Staff and a Careers team. This ethos enables a holistic approach to the needs of each of our students encompassing our school values and the strong link between education and wellbeing.

The College also has a satellite site providing an alternative VCAL study centre (Ngooloo) for regional youth disengaged from mainstream education provision and potentially at risk.
