The College curriculum, facilities, and Christian values all help to encourage your child to achieve their best – academically, spiritually, socially, emotionally and physically. We are well positioned to support, nurture and grow your child’s educational, arts and sporting needs throughout their schooling life and will guide them towards achieving their University, TAFE or Apprenticeship aspirations.
We are proud of what the college has achieved over the past 26 years as Maranatha Baptist College and are excited about the next phase of our journey as South Coast Baptist College. We have invested heavily in the latest technology, facilities and programs to ensure our students are supported throughout their schooling and graduate ready and qualified for further studies.
Founded in 1989 by Brother Pat Carey, of the Christian Brothers, Kolbe is a co-educational secondary College situated in picturesque grounds within the Rockingham educational precinct.
Since inception, Kolbe has grown to be a thriving community with an enrolment of nearly 1000 students from Years 7 to 12. The College’s motto,Courage, Faith, Excellence, inspired by our patron, St Maximilian Kolbe, challenges students to capitalise on their many gifts. They are assisted in this endeavour through our diverse and rich array of learning opportunities, both within and outside of the classroom.
Diversity of student learning has shaped our teaching and learning program. Our goal is to prepare students for the world of the future and hence we embody a strong focus upon digital learning, with a 1:1 Laptop Program for middle school students. Student learning extends beyond the classroom through the use of wikis, blogs and a well resourced Student Intranet. To provide balance, the College’s impressive Arts Program engenders a creative approach to learning and enables students to develop higher order thinking skills. Kolbe students are fortunate to have access to outstanding facilities and resources that are the envy of many.
A ‘never give up’ approach permeates the culture of our community. Whether it is through serving others as part of our Christian Service Learning Program, having the courage to display leadership, aspiring for academic excellence or participating in one of the College’s many extra-curricular activities or extensive sports program, students are always encouraged to give their best performance.
