Principal's Welcome

I would like to extend to all families a very warm welcome to Benalla P-12 College. This is an exciting time for education in Benalla as we continue to embark on a new direction which will enhance educational excellence across all year levels. Benalla P-12 College provides a vibrant teaching and stimulating learning environment that commences with Grade Prep and continues through the secondary years to VCE.

Children and young people journey through distinct stages of personal growth. To nourish our students' intellectual, physical, social and emotional well-being, Benalla P-12 College matches educational programs and levels of pastoral care to these developmental stages. Dividing our large school into the Early Years (Years Foundation (Prep) - 4), the Middle School (Years 5-9) and the Senior School (Years 10-12) means we can organise our educational and pastoral care resources to meet the diverse interests and needs of our students.

Our highly dedicated and professional team of teachers work tirelessly to ensure that the school motto of “Committed to Excellence” is brought to life on a daily basis in all classrooms. Student achievement is monitored very closely by each teacher to cater for the individual needs of students within a culture of academic excellence.

Students at Benalla P-12 College are taught how to care and support each other, as well as respect everyone’s individual differences through the School Wide Positive Behaviour Support program, a whole of school initiative. 

The school values the whole child and strives to develop strong self-esteem, confidence and independence. Children are encouraged to develop positive attitudes to learning and to acquire skills that will equip them for their future education.

At Benalla P-12 College we aim to develop in our students a love of learning and instil the core values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity and High Expectations. Our primary goal is to provide an excellent education for every child in every classroom. Each child is known and valued at Benalla P-12 College.

We value education as a partnership of children, staff, parents and the local community. I look forward to our partnership, and am truly excited with the directions, possibilities and opportunities for education at Benalla P-12 College.
