This publication provides a range of useful information for parents of children beginning secondary school. It will also help you understand the range of opportunities available at Victorian government secondary schools.
Every school is supported by a solid education system, so you can be confident that statewide standards in education are maintained. At the same time, each school has the flexibility to tailor its programs to meet the individual needs of students and the local community.
Government schools are an important part of their local community. The people who make our schools great places for your child – principals, teachers and other staff, and school councillors – make every effort to be involved in and connect with their community.
Everyone has clearly benefited from a long and relaxing holiday. We look forward to another great year in 2012.
I would particularly like to welcome those students, parents and staff who have joined the College Community this year. I hope you find our school to be very warm and welcoming and that your time with us is happy, productive and successful.
