Message from the Principal

Dear Parents and Students

Welcome to our Marist College Bendigo Webpage.

Marist College Bendigo is a learning community where the student is at the centre of all learning experiences. As a new college we have been able to design our learning environment to suit the exciting new challenges which education faces early in the 21st Century. This allows us to focus on developing the skills our young people need to work collaboratively, inquire critically and become independent learners. Our community has attracted educators who are excited about these new ways of learning. We have graduates, former primary principals and we have educators with 30 years experience. We come from a diverse background but all drawn to the opportunity of working at the cutting edge of learning.

Our College will grow to become a Foundation (prep) – Year 12 community. As we grow we are committed to maintaining our learning structures that will ensure our students are known and loved. At the centre of our learning structure is our 1:14 group. In this group one educator walks with a maximum of 14 students. This 1:14 Educator becomes the key point of contact for the family and is the centrepiece of our learning structures. The group meets for fifteen minutes each morning and for 100 minutes on a Friday afternoon. Yes Friday afternoons at Marist are dedicated to setting and reviewing personal goals for each student.

So come along and experience our learning community, where your child will begin their experience as an independent learner at Marist.
