"Come, follow me..." - Matthew 4:19
Welcome to Marist College Bendigo
Marist is a Foundation to Year 12 Catholic co-educational learning community, owned and governed by Marist Schools Australia. We are a learning community of 1,140 students and 150 staff. The 13-year journey of learning at Marist has three distinct learning areas La Valla (F-4), Montagne (5-8) and Champagnat (9-12).
Marist College Bendigo is a learning community where the student is at the centre of all learning experiences. We have been able to specifically design our learning environment to suit the exciting new challenges, which education faces early in this 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 and each has been drawn to the opportunity of working at the cutting edge of learning.
At Marist, we are committed to learning structures that will ensure our students are known and loved. At the centre of our learning structure is our 1:14 group. Here one Educator walks alongside 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 86 minutes on a Friday afternoon. Yes, Friday afternoons at Marist are dedicated to setting and reviewing personal goals for each student.
Entry levels at Marist College Bendigo are Foundation, Year 7 and Year 11.
