Our Vision & Values
Each and every day we are motivated by the vision that the children of our community receive an outstanding public education whatever their age – from Kindergarten to Year 12. We want our students to become successful learners and resilient and optimistic citizens.
Bullsbrook College provides a caring, collaborative and inclusive learning environment that is focused on engaging all students and challenging them to grow academically, socially, emotionally and physically.
Such a learning environment will enable students to become self-directed learners, feel pride and confidence in their abilities, and understand the connection between their efforts and opportunities.
The acronym R.E.A.C.H has been chosen by our school to promote our school values of RESPECT – EFFORT – ACTIVE LEARNING – COURTESY – HONOUR in each and every student. These values are prominently displayed throughout our school and are reinforced in all classrooms.
The House system is part of our positive incentives program to promote student engagement and to reward students for achievement across the many areas of schooling in which individuals can excel. Be it academic, sporting, cultural or citizenship/service, there are many opportunities for staff to acknowledge that excellence.
There are four Houses at Bullsbrook College. These are:
Avon Hawks (Sky Blue)
The Avon River flows through National Parks only a few kilometres from our school.
Darling Bushrangers (Green)
The Darling Scarp is a low escarpment also known as the Darling Ranges. A famous local bushranger known as Moondyne Joe hid in the bushland in the Darling Scarp in the 1860s.
Pearce Jets (Purple)
The RAAF Base Pearce is a prominent feature of the town of Bullsbrook and only a few minutes’ walk from the school. Aerial displays above the school are a unique feature of our school.
Walyunga Roos (Red)
The beautiful Walyunga National Park is only a few minutes’ drive south of the school and is accessed by our students for canoeing and walking.
House activities are held regularly. A highlight of the school calendar is our House Athletics Carnival held in September of each year.
Competitions and rewards are based around the House System.
COLOURS, HONOURS AND STUDENT SERVICE AWARDS
We are proud of what our students achieve in school programs as well as when pursuing their out-of-school interests.
We all bring different talents, interests and aspirations to our learning. Acknowledging and supporting those strengthens an appreciation of diversity and the richness it brings to each and every one of us.
