Introducing LJBC from the College Principal, Mrs Dawn Clements
Welcome to Lake Joondalup Baptist College, Perth, Western Australia. On behalf of our students and staff, it is an absolute pleasure to introduce you to our College. Whether you are visiting this website for the first time or you already know us, we warmly invite you to experience the virtual tour, browse our website or perhaps come visit us in person and see why we love our school so much!
We are a large and established Pre Kindergarten to Year 12 school community in the northern corridor of Perth. At LJBC we understand the importance of choosing the right school for your children. We share with our College families common goals, because our staff are deeply committed to providing an environment of inspired learning and achievement, a place to feel safe, happy and appreciated for individual interests and talents. Children benefit when they know that they can grow with confidence in a place that allows them to easily connect to achieve their dreams and hopes for the future.
Our strong academic record is one part of our story. Many of our students have achieved the state’s top results in examination subjects as they prepare for University. Many of our students have achieved well in subjects that prepare them for careers in industry. Our students enjoy working with their caring and purposeful teachers who deliver strong academic foundations, quality teaching relationships and interesting learning opportunities. We have a Bring Your own Device program but we are also equipped with technology rich labs and resource rich facilities. Our campus is well presented and our building programs consider green space, functionality, and the aesthetics of modern design.
Our curriculum suite for our co-educational environment is extensive!
The College also offers a balanced experience of exceptional co-curricular programs inclusive of Sports, Creative and Performing Arts, Cultural and Academic tours to overseas countries and opportunities for community service contributions both locally and internationally.
We are a Christian school. Our motto derived from Micah 6:8 is ‘Seek Wisdom, act Justly and love Mercy’. The work of our school embraces our Christian faith and our declaration is that Christ is central to our identity with ultimate ownership and sovereignty over our school.
These are our values.
We have a professional team of support and administrative staff and we have a strong and large College Leadership Team.
The College Leadership Team consults holistically regarding the organisational function of our school. Our Heads of Learning, Heads of House, Mentors, Primary Leaders, Directors and Co-ordinators are responsible for engaging student voice and opinion, building leadership programs, facilitating quality teacher training and progressing the connectedness of our school.
The College Management Team is our College Executive and works to enable operations, innovations, programs and policies. This team impacts the cultural organisation and identity of the College.
I invite you to read our Strategic Plan, accessed through this website, to see our vision and direction.
No school is perfect and while we don’t claim to be perfect we do claim to love this place!
We have made the commitment to prepare our students to embrace the exciting challenges of our century and provide them with the knowledge and skills to make a difference. Our students are our greatest ambassadors.
I am proud of them. Our students present themselves with an engaging enthusiasm, sincerity and determination. They care for one another and they aspire to their highest standards.
