Balmoral K-12 Community College is a Child Safe School which offers students a caring and nurturing learning environment. Our dedicated and experienced Staff provide a positive and enriching program, appreciating the individual needs and interests of every child.
Our College is a place where learners are prepared through a course of directed studies either to enter the workplace with a broad skill set, or to undertake further studies to prepare them for their chosen vocation or profession.
Our College is a warm and welcoming place that values relationships, student engagement and student voice, and endeavours to seek student feedback to improve outcomes, both within and external to the classroom.
Facilities are utilised by students from Kindergarten through to Year 12, and include two Gymnasiums, a Science Lab, Foods Room, Tech Shed, Eco Centre, Textiles Classroom, Library, Music Room, two Art Rooms, Mandarin Classroom, two vegetable gardens, and paddocks for our stock which includes cattle, sheep, birds and chickens.
