The Depot cafe has reopened! The Depot operates on Primary School Campus from Monday to Friday during the school term, from 7.30-9.30am.
Dear parents and caregivers,
With all year groups back on campus from next Monday, we are able to once again resume our College Sports training program albeit in a modified fashion.
Thank you everyone for your patience over the last few weeks; we know the students are excited to get back onto the fields and courts!
We have introduced some extra health and hygiene measures for this season. This includes regular cleaning of all shared equipment, hand sanitizing before and during training sessions and modified activities to reduce close proximity of students.
We believe that sport is an important part of the holistic education and wellbeing of students at Brisbane Christian College and so want to encourage as many students as possible to return to participating in the training offered. However, we do also understand that within the current circumstances some families may feel hesitant to have their children return to training just yet.
Our Football Academy Program will recommence within the same timetable as last term.
During next week we will hold an expressions of interest meeting to ascertain student numbers and will arrange training days and times accordingly.
Basketball, Volleyball & Soccer:
New training days and times are as follows and will also be posted on the Sports Forum Facebook page.
If you have any questions please contact Michael Baumgartner our Sports Administrator at firstname.lastname@example.org

Griffith Eng, Griffith Chem, Griffith Phys and fast tracked courses
The Griffith Eng, Griffith Chem and Griffith Phys programs allow high school students to get ahead of the pack by studying a university course while completing their senior studies.
High school students who complete one of these programs can:
- Gain credit for a first-year course, saving thousands of dollars in HECS and reducing the essential workload of first-year university.
- Be awarded an adjusted selection rank.
- Access it all for free! All costs are covered by the University.
Due to popular demand, we are now also able to offer Griffith Chem and Griffith Phys as fast-tracked courses for Year 12 students (as well as being available to Year 11 students in the usual format completed over 2 years).
Applications for all programs are open now.
New Drive Through & Drop 'N' Go at the Middle and Secondary Campus
We are very happy to announce that the off-street Drive Through and Drop ‘N’ Go road is now complete and is functioning well. This has greatly reduced the traffic on Frewin Street for our neighbours and has improved drop-off and pick-up times within the College site for families. Please note the following:
- All vehicular access to the Middle and Secondary Campus is through Gate 1 on Fairlie Terrace, which provides access to the new Drop ‘N’ Go Zone next to the covered basketball courts.
- This new road is one way only.
- Gate 2 on Frewin Street is for exit only.
The Drop ‘N’ Go video and Map and Guidelines Download explains the new driveway and how to use the Drop ‘N’ Go Zone on the Middle and Secondary Campus. Thank you for your patience and assistance in making this new procedure a smooth and effective one.
