Established a campus in Aintree - Rockbank.
Initially Woodlea offered education from Prep to Year 6, then expanded to Year 8 in 2020 and Year 9 in 2023.
The School welcomed past families, staff students to tour the Maddingley Campus and celebrate this significant milestone.
Bacchus Marsh Grammar established an unique rural facility at Staughton Vale, just 20 minutes to the south-west of our Maddingley Campus.
The campus commenced in 2017 and as it develops it will play a central role in the life and experiences of Bacchus Marsh Grammar.
BMG celebrated the 25 year milestone by producing a Cookbook.
In 1999, Senior Art Teacher Linda Gallus successfully applied for a grant to engage an ‘Artist in Residence’ to work with art students. Sculptor Fiona Orr was appointed and attended the school for an extended period throughout 2000. Fiona ran a series of sculpture workshops for students and staff. In particular, Fiona worked with Year 12 students, who were given a design brief to create a clay marquette for a sculpture feature for the school grounds. Chelsea Corcoran’s ‘Mother and Child’ marquette was selected, and the class was guided through the construction process to create the piece.
Over the years, the sculpture has provided a gathering place for celebrations, acknowledgements, grief and loss, and remembering.
- Establishment of Bacchus Marsh College at Halletts Way, Bacchus Marsh.
