College Profile

Apollo Bay is a beautiful coastal town located on the Great Ocean Road in Victoria and surrounded by the Otway Ranges. The rich environment has attracted a community with a strong commitment to a healthy and active lifestyle, the environment and a great interest in the arts. This is reflected in our College educational programs and is reflected in our College Motto developed in 2014, "Unique Environment, Extraordinary Opportunities". Our College is highly supported by students, parents and the wider community, and all played an extensive role in the establishment of our College Vision, Mission and Purpose statements, and our school Values of 'Excellence', 'Respect', 'Integrity' and 'Balance'. Apollo Bay P-12 College is a relatively small school with a total population of around 260 students from Prep to Year 12. The College is isolated, being the sole provider of education within the Apollo Bay community, with its nearest neighbouring schools 45 minutes’ drive in opposite directions.

Our College is committed to helping develop in all students the capacity, desire and tools to achieve their best in all endeavours. We foster a sense of awareness, responsibility and respect, from a global perspective, through to family and community with an emphasis on individual personal growth. We support, encourage and promote across our whole school community the pursuit of personal excellence and we are committed to a culture that is dynamic and ready to embrace new ideas, opportunities and challenges to improve student learning and to equip students to meet the demands of the 21st century. We participate fully in the community by developing strong, supportive and respectful relationships.
