Welcome back to Term 2!!
One thing that I love is when the students return to school and bring life back to the environment. We really value the fact that over 60% of students have returned for face to face classes and parents have made their choice based on their own circumstances.
GBC will continue support your choice as a parent. Whether it is choosing GBC @Home or bringing kids back with their peers. While we have adjusted what is happening at school and home, the response has shown that we may be able to return to a more regulation timetable shortly, allowing for a more comprehensive education all-round. We are however, well prepared for all scenarios and continue to follow the advice of our State and Federal Governments.
As a College, we have put in place as many measures as possible to ensure the health and safety of our students. This includes – staff and students only in the school grounds (parent/carer drop off only), social distancing, additional cleaning routines, improved hygiene measures and education regarding keeping ‘ourselves’ safe. Our canteen continues to serve takeaway food.
Pick up/drop off has been adjusted to allow for a managed pickup – including an adjusted end of day (K-PP 2:30pm, Years 1-6 2:45pm, and Secondary 3pm). Bus students will be managed by their teachers – depending on the length of time before bus pickup.
We will get though this together as a community, please let us know if there is anything we can do to assist. GBC is here to serve!
Goldfields Baptist College (GBC) is the only Kindy to Year 12 registered educational facility in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, creating a consistent pathway on a student’s learning journey.
We are committed to assisting our students to thrive and reach their God-given potential by providing an education that challenges, encourages and builds into all areas of their lives – spiritual, academic, physical and social. We encourage students to question, critique and explore in their personal pursuit of truth.
GBC is a multicultural, multi denominational, co-educational school that offers a holistic Christian education. Our learning, pastoral care and relationships are based on a strong Christian foundation. We have an open enrolment policy and welcome families that accept and support our vision and ethos.
We have quality staff who provide practical learning experiences for our students, nurturing their individual strengths and equipping them for life's challenges and opportunities.
