Bay State School has proudly served the local community for over ninety years.
The original school motto 'Strive to excel' applies equally today as it did
years ago. Our school serves a diverse, multicultural community, encouraging
all to 'Strive to excel' in all aspects of school life – academic, sporting and
cultural pursuits. We not only encourage all students to be 'the Best in the
Bay' but the 'Best they can be' in all their endeavours!
school prides itself on working hand in hand with parents and the wider
community to achieve the very best educational outcomes for each and every
child. The school staff are a dedicated, caring, committed and highly
professional team of class teachers, specialist teachers, teacher aides and
other personnel who strive to meet the individualised learning needs of each
and every child in a very supportive learning environment. In addition, we
partner with many local organisations who support the school with services and
activities for children.
school enrolments are nearing 350 students, catering for students from
Prep through to Year 6. As with all schools in Australia, we teach the
offer a vast array of sporting opportunities for our children and are also
broadening the cultural opportunities for offer with our school choir, concert
band and other activities.
