Our People

A Caring community

While we are blessed with great facilities and exciting programs, it is the people of BHCS who make the school an inviting place to be. Relationship is at the core of every student’s learning journey - relationship with teachers, staff, their peers and the extended BHCS community.

Michelle Farrand

Year 12 Team Leader

I love our school community. I feel incredibly grateful that I can work with people who are passionate about teaching and genuinely care about their students. We have learning assistants, maintenance and admin staff who are gracious and go above and beyond for others.

Our students also, make it all worth it. They are kind, thoughtful of others, and a lot of fun. To be able to teach them, and learn from them, is a real gift.

VCAL Learning Assistant

I love being part of our school environment; it is such a beautiful community. From the moment I drive through the gate, I feel a sense of belonging and peace.

The quality of everyone on staff is exceptional and they serve with such passion, faith, generosity and care and their ability to get the job done is truly inspirational.

It is such a privilege to watch students grow, thrive and succeed at BHCS.



Past Student

In all schools, students get the privilege of having a variety of teachers; good and bad. However students at Belgrave have the opportunity to have some of the kindest teachers around. Teachers that care about your school experience and want to see you excel; genuine people who care about both your academic and wellbeing. They give us the background to ground us into society to communicate effectively with other peers but also our teachers and mentors, allowing us to succeed past the school experience.

Gardener and Artist in Residence

I love that the school is a place where students get their hands in the dirt, planting local trees and shrubs as well as veggies and flowers. This is mirrored in the way students are encouraged to dream and be creative with their music and art.

It's great jumping off the ride-on mower and picking up a guitar for a lesson. It speaks volumes about being valued and encouraged to be different; something I hope to pass on to others.


Past Student

I love BHCS because of the people; teachers who care about their students; parents who want the best for their kids; students who support and grow with each other. One of the things that makes the school so unique is its location. We're hidden in a small valley, surrounded by stunning forest. 
The teachers at Belgrave Heights are fantastic and teach their students with expertise, patience and compassion. They enable students at BHCS to both thrive and overcome any trials schooling throws at them.

I love that our Teachers and Staff really care about the students and look at them as individuals. They recognise that all students are different and that all students have a talent. It might just take a bit longer to discover what that talent is. I love being able to help students who have struggled at other schools able to find a safe and caring place to be and to hear from parents how they are now thriving.
