Bendigo South East College (BSE) was formed in 2009, when Kangaroo Flat, Golden Square and Flora Hill Colleges merged to create Bendigo South East and Crusoe College as part of the Bendigo Education Plan project. BSE caters for students from Years 7 to 10 and has an outstanding record of educational success based on a caring, individual approach.
During the four years of study at our College, students are involved in a curriculum balanced across the eight Learning Areas and four Capabilities aligned to the Victorian Curriculum.
At Years 7, 8, 9 and 10, students study a combination of core units and electives, giving them the opportunity to maintain a broad range of future options while pursuing individual interests.
The range of academic and co-curricular awards won by students and staff at State and National levels is testament to the College’s position as one of Victoria’s leading schools.
The College has a comprehensive range of Student Support services to ensure that the full range of student abilities are appropriately nurtured.
Our Student Management motto states that, ‘We believe that all students are important and can be successful, and we won’t give up until every one of them is.’ We promote the College as a Community of life long learners, with parents as an integral group in the partnership.
The College has a well established Code of Conduct based upon the premise that ‘All individuals will be valued and treated with respect.’ Discipline is seen as a learning opportunity. A restorative approach helps students ‘make it right’ when mistakes are made.
