Our Identity & Values
We aim to become the school of choice for families seeking a nurturing, child-centred, research and evidence based education that helps to develop confident, resilient, creative, collaborative, responsible and respectful children capable of thriving in our ever-changing world.

Our Identity and Values (what makes us unique)

Respect for the needs and potential of every child is at the heart of our school.

We celebrate uniqueness: we recognise that each of us is one-of-a-kind and acknowledge each other’s strengths. We recognise and value the many varied ways in which we can learn and make sense of our world.

We are respectful: our children are treated as equals and we help them learn to build healthy relationships with their peers and community. We encourage our children to work in collaboration and achieve success as a team.

We are resilient: we have the confidence and fortitude to keep trying if at first we don’t succeed; and to accept and learn from our challenges.

We are joyful: we love learning and help our children develop a sense of wonder in their world by emphasising nature-based and ‘real life’ experiences.

We are creative: our learning environments promote reflectivity, ingenuity, imagination and problem solving.

We foster an ethic of excellence: we believe that if we are going to do something, we should do it well and create a culture where the children are excited about doing their best and proud of what they achieve.

We are resourceful: we use what we have, find what we need and think outside the box to source our materials and solutions.

We are dynamic: we seek innovative ways to nurture and educate our children and we evolve and change in response to new knowledge and changing needs

We are a community: we actively engage with our ‘village’ and wider community in order to build a sense of self that includes and attends to the wellbeing of others.

Principal's Image

When you visit our school and as you look through our website; you will discover that BPCS is an intimate, caring and innovative 21st Century school, catering for children through our Playgroup, Early Childhood, Primary and Adolescent Middle School and College programs. BPCS offers a unique educational choice between mainstream and established alternative schooling, which caters for families looking for a nurturing environment which supports latest research and best practice.

The BPCS vision has been supported with newer buildings that include a large Undercover Area, Science Lab, Community Arts Centre (The Mac), Multi-Function Media Arts Hub, Generalist Classrooms and Study Room Facilities. In 2018, Bold Park Community School was gifted a 2.5 million dollar school in Maylands which was developed to expand our Year 10-12 Senior Secondary programs and opened in 2021.

The current structure offers a Community Class setting within Upper Primary, Middle School and College; fostering a unique caring, nurturing and ‘family’ based environment for targeting the specific needs of emerging teenagers and young adults.

BPCS offers an established integrated Arts Program across the school, where students have the opportunity to engage with Focus Teaching Teams in Dance, Drama, Music, Media, Visual Arts, Culture, Kitchen Garden and Physical Education.

Whatever age or stage your child is at, we invite you and your family to discover our unique school located next to beautiful Lake Galup (Lake Monger), which provides rich inspiration for our programs.

Bold Park Community School is in the enviable position of maintaining waiting lists for many sections of the school.
