Welcome to Benalla P-12 College
Benalla P-12 College was established in January 2013 as a result
of all the state government schools in Benalla merging.

ABN 72 163 296 413
A fifth Campus, the Clarke St Campus, is used for some secondary clases and special programs and its grounds and play equipment continues to be accessed by students in Years 5 and 6 each recess and lunchtime.
Our Vision is to inspire
and support students to achieve their full potential within a learning
environment that is engaging, safe, positive, respectful, inclusive and
welcoming. We aim to achieve this by maximising the three key stages of
Our Early Years program, Foundation (Prep) to Year 4, on the
Avon and Waller St Campuses provides students with the foundations for learning
in all areas of the curriculum. Our focus is on developing successful learners
in literacy and numeracy through a rich learning environment. Indonesian LOTE
is taught on the Waller St Campus while Indonesian is taught through a
Bilingual program on the Avon St Campus. Both campuses access a highly
successful Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Garden Program.
The Middle Years program, Years 5 to 9, operates on the
Faithfull St Campus and our focus is on adding depth and breadth to each
student’s learning in all curriculum areas. It also offers Indonesian LOTE and
Indonesian Bilingual in Years 5 & 6. A specifically Year Y program will comemnce this year to help further address the needs of the Year 7 students. This program will lessen the number of teachers student will have and focus on developing students' inquiry-based learning skills. The Year 9
program known as the Year 9 Advisory Program operates on this campus to provide
students with the opportunity to make a positive contribution to the community
through its community projects. Students undertake individual learning projects
incorporating Science and Humanities and participate in community based
learning. Students haver the opportunity to participate in the Future Makers Program which is a 12 day program delivered at the Outdoor School -15 Mile Creek. The 15 Mile Creek staff will deliver up to 10 lessons to Year 9 students prior to the camp and then 6 lessons post camp. This program is integrated into the Year 9 Curriculum.
The Senior Years program, Years 10, 11 & 12, operates on the
Barkly St Campus and offers a range of VCE, VET and VCAL subjects that will
provide students with a variety of pathways to further their learning
opportunities. Individual guidance is provided to students when selecting
subjects and in helping to choose their career pathway beyond Year 12.
We are very excited about 2016 and what it will bring to the
children, young people and families of Benalla P-12 College.
