Our Community


 

Braybrook College respectfully acknowledges the Traditional Custodians, the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation, on whose land we meet, share, learn and work. We pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging and extend our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people from all nations of this land.

 

Braybrook College is a single campus, co-educational, Years 7 to 12 college, largely serving the areas of Braybrook, Sunshine and Footscray.

Our current population, of approximately 1400 students, enables a wide curriculum choice to be offered at all levels. We constantly strive to set high academic standards which enable students to move to their chosen career pathway.

As our students move into their VCE years we believe it is especially important that they have the security of being able to maintain contact with teachers they know well.

Our college is proud of its emphasis on providing individual help and support within a safe and caring environment.

There are six major feeder schools, five of which are in the immediate vicinity, although students are drawn from a wide area including Deer Park, Sunshine and St Albans. Only one-third of students come from Braybrook or Maidstone and thirty-five schools are on the intake list.  Approximately 65% of students are from a Language Background other than English. Of these the main group is Vietnamese. However, another 30% of the student population have backgrounds from approximately 40 different nationalities. We restrict our International Student numbers to approximately 35 in total, and all are from Vietnam. This has been a significant achievement for our college and reflects the growing confidence of overseas fee-paying students in our programs and of course our international reputation.
