Official Facebook Page

Bacchus Marsh Grammar is pleased to announce that our School is branching out into the use of social media to connect with each other and the broader community. Social media is an integral part of society, and how we form, create and share in our community, however, if social media is inappropriately used, serious issues can arise.

For this reason, Bacchus Marsh Grammar would like to reiterate our intentions for the introduction of an official school Facebook page and enlist the support of the community to ensure its use is entirely appropriate and delivers a safe, positive and happy experience.


Our school community is wonderfully diverse and our Facebook page is an excellent platform to celebrate and communicate our welcoming and inclusive school values. Any comments added to the Bacchus Marsh Grammar Facebook page should serve as an example to students on how to interact in the social media space – with respect, kindness, decency, positivity, celebration and grace.


Unfortunately, social media can be misused and for this reason, the school is obliged to detail the following uses of social media (this is not an exhaustive list) as examples of conduct that will not be tolerated by Bacchus Marsh Grammar:

  • Any comments that include hate speech, defamation, bullying, retribution, intimidation, stalking or harassment of any nature. Additionally, comments should not use threatening, insulting, derogatory, unprofessional, disrespectful, pornographic, abusive or foul language.
  • Any form of unauthorised commercial communications which includes advertising of any nature or unlawful multi-level marketing (such as a pyramid scheme) self-promotion or direct sales pitches.
  • Misrepresentation of Bacchus Marsh Grammar or any member of the school community or any
  • comment that could bring harm to members of the school community or disrepute to the school.
  • False impersonation or representation of another person.

Please note: Bacchus Marsh Grammar does not endorse children under the age of thirteen years (a threshold imposed by Facebook) having their own Facebook account. Younger students are encouraged to view the school’s Facebook page via their parents Facebook account and under parental supervision.

It is important that our Community review the following protocols and policies relating to the Bacchus Marsh Grammar Facebook Page:



To report inappropriate use or to provide suggestions for Community posts please contact Casey Ryder.
