Belonging to a community and having the confidence and skills to contribute to it, is an essential part of every person’s life.
Balcombe’s Community Programs aim to raise awareness of social issues and provides students with a rich diversity of activities. The program teaches students key leadership and interpersonal skills such as confidence, understanding, empathy, resilience and responsibility.
All students from Foundation to Year 9 at Balcombe Grammar School also have the opportunity to learn a second language, with the option to continue to VCE level. Learning a second language teaches us about communication with people from other cultures, and we learn about our own language through the study of another.
In addition to the LOTE program, the entire school community welcomes Inbound Study Tours enabling students to engage with other languages and schooling practices from around the world.
