Goldfields Baptist College

Goldfields Baptist College is a ministry of Kalgoorlie Baptist Church. Established in 2000, Goldfields Baptist College continues to provide an exciting Christian education option for families in the Goldfields. GBC has an open enrolment policy, welcoming people who are committed to seeing their children educated in a nurturing environment, based on biblical principles and in accordance with the Australian Curriculum.

The College Vision is:

Creating an educational community that is being transformed by the Truth of God’s Word, nurturing and equipping each person for life.

GBC currently caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 10, with a single stream in the Primary College. Enrolment numbers are around 250 students, with approximately 30 staff, who are dedicated to engaging their students in dynamic learning experiences.

Parent involvement is encouraged and the parent body, GBC Together, is active in partnering with the College through fundraising, events and supporting the staff and students. The College is actively involved in the wider community, through the choir singing at local functions, participation in sporting, cultural and social events and engaging with the various churches.

The College has modern facilities, including classrooms, playgrounds, a community hall, sporting facilities, science lab, canteen, library, computer lab and thriving vegetable gardens!

The GBC Board is made up of elected members who are from Kalgoorlie Baptist Church and other churches in Kalgoorlie-Boulder who have skills, knowledge and a passion for serving the College. The Board’s role is to oversee the strategic direction of the College and to ensure the Principal is supported in his management role. The Board has a positive working relationship with the College and constantly seeks God for wisdom and direction.

Craig Dredge is the Principal at Goldfields Baptist College and his door is open to welcome all who would like to discuss any queries or ideas.
