Additional areas:These are interwoven across all the curriculum areas.

Communication
  • Interpersonal Learning
  • Thinking Processes
  • Civics & Citizenship
  • Personal Learning

 

We recognise that not all children learn the same so our aim is to provide activities in our daily teaching that are:

  • auditory
  • visual
  • kinaesthetic

 

Our increasing range of computer based learning infiltrates many lessons but is also taught as a separate set of skills, essential for the twenty first century.

 

Geelong Baptist College is fortunate to have a wealth of specialist teachers within our Secondary staff who work alongside Primary staff to enrich teaching opportunities. It is a strength of our school that we can access this wonderful resource. An example of this is our Creative Arts program, where the students get to explore an area of interest in the Arts to performance level. This is then showcased at special events such as Grandparents and Special Friends Day and Presentation Night.
