As we commence the fifth year of operation at Kennedy Baptist College we continue to develop a powerful culture, placing a strong emphasis on the quality of teaching, together with the assessment and moderation of our teaching and learning programs, particularly in Year 12. Our goal is always to improve the performance of all of our Year 12 students, whatever the ATAR or Alternative Pathway they may be striving for. In 2017, we will continue to review the delivery of our teaching, learning, assessment and reporting procedures to ensure the best possible outcome for our students across all year groups.
