Welcome to Lake Bolac P-12 College

Lake Bolac College is an outstanding P-12 school, located 90km west of Ballarat in the rural heart of the south-west. We are an inclusive school that embraces learning across the lifespan.  Our vision is 'to support and challenge every individual to have a passion for learning, to strive to do their best and to be friendly and happy'.  Our school values: Achievement, Respect and Resilience are embraced by the school community and at the core of our daily practices. A kindergarten is located within close proximity and family day-care operates on site. The College is a central hub for the Lake Bolac Community and situated at the edge of the picturesque lake.

Lake Bolac College is committed to educating the whole child. We build engagement through purposeful, student centred learning that emanates from agreed best practise with a strong emphasis on high quality Literacy and Numeracy instruction. Being the only state school servicing the town and surrounding areas, Lake Bolac College offers a comprehensive and intensive curriculum with a range of pathways to meet the interests and needs of our students. Students are offered a wide range of learning experiences from specialist teachers across the school. We offer both VCE and VCAL options for senior students and coordinate with service providers to offer VET and SBL (School Based Apprenticeship) opportunities to senior students as part of their chosen career pathways.

Lake Bolac College is dedicated to achieving ongoing improvement in learning outcomes for its students. To achieve this there is a continual focus on the development of teacher practice and efficacy. All teachers are engaged with Professional Learning Communities (PLC's) that follow the improvement cycle and have a foundation in the sharing of best practice and research. College leadership teams continue to seek out cutting edge professional learning experiences for the development of teacher practice and pedagogy.

All teachers are involved in our innovative Mentor Program which offers small group, cross-age tutoring in our school values, Respectful Relationships and general wellbeing. Our whole school approach to school events and activities has encouraged a strong P-12 culture, steeped in strong family values and community engagement. 

The welfare of our students is a high priority. Lake Bolac College is a child safe school which actively promotes the safety and wellbeing of all students. All school staff are committed to protecting students from abuse or harm in the school environment, and are required to adhere to the schools Child Safe Policy and Child Safe Code of Conduct.

Lake Bolac College offers an extensive extra-curricular program which includes camps for students in all year levels, instrumental music lessons, school productions/performance opportunities, life education, and student-led planning of community events such as our annual 'Family Fun Day'. The College celebrates student leadership and milestones with both a Year 6 and Year 12 graduation dinner, a whole-school awards evening and weekly awards celebrating student demonstration of the school values. Lake Bolac College has a strong history of sporting success and values the positive impact of health and fitness on learning.

Located on the edge of Lake Bolac, the College makes use of the Lake and surrounding rural environment. The buildings and grounds of the College are ample and well maintained. The College also enjoys sharing nearby community facilities including the Aquatic (Boat) Club, Swimming Pool, Golf Course, Bush Nursing Centre, Local Hall, Information Centre and Library.

Lake Bolac College acknowledges the traditional owners of the land, the Djab Wurrung people. We pay our respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
