Primary Principal

Austin Cove Baptist College is an educational community where we like to be known as “Two Schools – One College” – a College in which students can journey from Kindergarten right through to graduation at the completion of Year Twelve. The Primary School is a growing family of approximately 335 students of double streamed Kindergarten to Year Six classes.  

Choosing a school is a big decision not only because of the possible expense involved but because a school has such a significant role to play in the development of a child; five days a week for 40 weeks of the year and for up to 13 years.  It is a big investment and parents need to know that the school of their choosing is the destination that is best for their family.

As a professional team of educators and administrators we are here to serve in an environment in which teachers are expected to have the opportunity to teach and students expected to have the right to learn.  Our Core Values of Courage, Persistence and Respect (CPR) emphasise our commitment to the holistic, academic, physical, emotional and spiritual development of each child.

God, in His wisdom, has given the responsibility of raising children to parents (a mother and a father), not to schools, not to Governments. Each child is special and unique with their own personality, abilities and interests and as such we believe we need to partner with the home in bringing a level of professional knowledge and expertise to the wisdom and experience of the home. Regular, positive communication is the key to this. If there are open lines for discussion and dialogue concerning between the home and the school then we all benefit. For this reason I encourage our staff and parents to seek effective ways of building and maintaining open lines of communication.

If you are considering enrolling your child, or would just like to know more, I encourage you to contact our receptionist and arrange for an enrolment pack to be mailed to you.

Primary Highlights

80s Flashback

At the end of Term 3, our Primary School staff and students got “Into the Groove” with an 80s Flashback dress up day.  It was great to see so many staff and students dressed up in “True Colours”, being “Footloose” in the undercover area, doing the “Locomotion” and “Flashdance”, showing off their best dance moves.  All in all it was a wonderful, fun-filled way to end a busy term, an event hopefully to be repeated “Time After Time”...


New Families Morning Tea

Earlier this term, the Primary Campus hosted a Morning Tea for new families to the College. It was a pleasure to see so many new and friendly faces join our College community. Thank you to Mrs Dymock who arranged a lovely morning.
