Atlantis Beach Baptist College is a safe, caring and positive environment where self-discipline and respect are consistently demonstrated. We value our connections as a College Community and seek to build trust and rapport within the College Community. The College places a high priority on student welfare and wellbeing and works to build mutually respectful relationships. The interactions between staff, students, parents and families should be caring, polite and inclusive. Students will have the opportunity to use their personal talents and abilities in the service of others.
The Atlantis Beach Baptist College Community has an awareness of God’s love and the opportunity to grow in personal faith through biblical knowledge. The College Community will adhere to the College Charter of Goodwill. The College has a Christian Education curriculum across the Primary year levels and in the Secondary, Christian Education will be taught through the ‘Linked-In’ program. Students have opportunities to explore matters of faith in a supportive environment. Partnerships will be built with local Christian organisations to improve opportunities and outcomes for staff, students and parents to grow in faith.
Student behaviour should be respectful and appropriate to all members of the community. Students are encouraged to be self-disciplined in learning and life. There are clear strategies to promote appropriate behaviour, including agreed responses and consequences for inappropriate student behaviour which provides sufficient support for teachers to implement policies. The Behaviour Management Plan will include a clear system for students and families to be aware of. Bullying will not tolerated at Atlantis Beach Baptist College.
