Position Information 

Established in 1952, in the heart of Bega's commercial and residential precinct, Bega High School is a comprehensive rural high school that draws students from all parts of the Bega Valley Shire. The closest government secondary school is 50 kilometres away and the school's geographical drawing area ranges from Tathra (15 kilometres to the east), Cobargo (40 kilometres to the north), through to Wolumla (20 kilometres to the south) and Bemboka (40 kilometres to the west). Enrolments have decreased from 925 in 2011 to a maximum of 770 in 2018.  As a result of our location, we are a proud participant in the Sapphire Coast Learning Community. Our current enrolment is 685 in 2021, including 12% Aboriginal students. A Special Education faculty comprises multi–categorical, emotional disturbance, mild intellectual disability and severe intellectual disability classes. The wide-ranging student centred curriculum includes school-based and TAFE-based vocational education, and students follow various learning pathways exemplified by the range of school-based traineeships and apprenticeships for Stage 5 and 6. This approach coupled with evaluation of explicit teaching, student support, professional learning and consistent improvement has ensured students are at the centre of our activities. The school plan strategic directions are Student Growth and Attainment, Learning Culture of High Expectations and Educational Leadership.

Bega High School is committed to providing excellence in education which prepares all students to contribute positively to society. Our school values achievement through: 

Responsibility for learning, behaviour and our environment 

Respect for oneself, others and property 

Effort through being positive, resourceful and persistent.
