Senior School

Our senior school students are encouraged to become independent, capable life-long learners. We support students to maintain positive relationships with their peers and teachers and assist in developing socially responsible global citizens. We are dedicated to preparing students to have the skill sets they require for their journey after Primary school.

At Bonbeach Primary, we recognise the importance of student leadership. Students are offered the opportunity to explore different leadership styles and build their individual confidence and self-worth. Year 6 students are elected to a position and have a role to fulfil including mentoring the Year 5 students. Some responsibilities to lead the school in numerous ways are-

  • conducting whole school assemblies
  • coordinating sports activities and sporting days
  • supporting the junior school as buddies
  • assisting in open evenings, school tours and community events
  • representing the school at official events such as Junior Mayor, ANZAC ceremony

In the classroom, facilitate a problem solving based program that promotes critical thinking, where students are required to explore new things, make inquiries into their learning, make connections on their own life and reflect on what has occurred. We believe building resilience assists students to take their learning further, recover from failure, and revel in success all in a safe learning environment.

To complement our program, we offer numerous incursions and excursions, weekly interschool sport and an annual camp. Students are also able to participate in many extra-curricular activities such as gymnastics, aerobics, HPV (Human Powered Vehicle) racing, Premier’s Reading Challenge, Maths Olympiad.
