All students are assigned to a house group as well as welfare roll class. Students remain in the same welfare class throughout their time at the college and, where possible, have the same welfare teacher and welfare leader each year. The house system aims to promote house as well as school spirit by involving students in a range of pursuits (cultural, sporting and academic) in which they can gain house points to contribute towards an overall award of Champion House of the Year.
The college boasts an individual reward system that recognises those students who 'do the right thing' in areas such as punctuality, attendance, being prepared for class, supporting others, following rules and meeting expectations. These students have been rewarded with 'Golden Tickets' that place them in the draw for monthly rewards and prizes. Year level reward days are available in the junior school to recognise students who have maintained the expected standard pf behaviour and engagement in learning.
The Welfare Program across all year levels is a crucial component of Brisbane Bayside State College's whole school approach to positive behaviour support. All students have a welfare lesson each week that target development of interpersonal skills , goal setting, career pathways, resilience training and social development. Further support available through the guidance officer, chaplain, school nurse, career pathways co-ordinator and community education counsellor enhances these programs.
