Peregian Beach Community College continues its planned development as a P-12 College. Middle School commences in 2006 with applications now being accepted for all years Pre – Year 8. The College is situated on 20 acres of naturally landscaped grounds and sporting fields on Old Emu Mountain Road at Peregian Beach.
The Peregian Beach Community College has a special educational philosophy and a clearly chosen commitment to the concept of an educational community and community schooling. Community-building is seen as a value in itself as well as a critical foundation for a happy and successful education for its students. Within this philosophy of education students are encouraged and given opportunities to develop a happy self confidence that is based on competence, self respect, respect for others, and a healthy sense of independence. The students learn progressively to assume responsibility for their own learning. They also learn how best to be contributors in their personal lives and in a world where the need for compassion and social and cultural understanding is increasingly important.
This is an educational community which is deeply concerned for each student’s nurturing and development. Simply, this is a College which is responsive to its families and looks to the happiness of its students as preconditions for learning and growing. The curriculum is an enhanced and enriched Queensland syllabus which will prepare its students will for all post-school pathways in further education and training. Well equipped and spacious facilities, a commitment to small class sizes, an emphasis on technology, ICTs and robotics, and excellence in teaching are clear advantages the Board of Directors has put in place for students.
