A Wonderful Opportunity for Bayside Students

Following a fire at our school in early 2020 and the rebuilding of several buildings through 2020 and 2021, we are proud to have moved home to Bamfield Street and officially opened our new-look school in 2022, where students are enjoying Bayside’s newest school facilities.

Combining the history of our beloved school with purpose-built, state of the art classrooms and teaching areas is exciting for our entire school community and a real opportunity for future students.
