About Bialik College

When your child is a Bialik College student they are welcomed into a vibrant Jewish community school where children of all ages grow together on one campus.

We pride ourselves on nurturing the emotional, social and spiritual needs of each child within an inclusive Jewish ethos and caring family environment.

Our school has a strong Zionist ethos and an inclusive, pluralistic approach that teaches the full spectrum of Jewish identity. This gives them the confidence to contribute meaningfully to the Jewish, Australian and global communities.

Bialik College instils a lifelong love of learning among our students, and we have attained a reputation for academic excellence which is supported by teaching methods that embrace an innovative Culture of Thinking (link) philosophy.

“Bialik is unique as Australia’s only pluralistic Jewish school embracing the entire Jewish community regardless of affiliation or practice.” 
— Jeremy Stowe-Lindner, Principal

How we learn and grow together

Bialik College is a pluralistic Jewish Zionist school, embracing an inclusive approach to Judaism. Our ethos, which includes aspects from all streams of Judaism, closely mirrors the rich mosaic of Jewish identity in Melbourne.

All students attend one campus in Hawthorn, where they learn and grow together. This creates a close-knit community of students from as young as 3 months in the Creche, and 3 to 18 years in the Early Learning Centre and main school.

Most Bialik College students live in the Caulfield and Elsternwick, many travelling to school on public transport or Bialik buses.

Our Commitment to Child Safety

Bialik College is committed to ensuring the safety, welfare and wellbeing of students and children. We do so through the participation and empowerment of all of our students, staff and families in creating an environment that aspires to have all children who attend the school feeling and being safe. The welfare of the children in our care will always be our first priority and we have a zero tolerance to child abuse, taking proactive approach to mitigating risks to child safety..
