DEBNEY PARK SECONDARY COLLEGE


Debney Park
Secondary College
provides a challenging program to a diverse
range of students, delivered by an experienced and committed staff. The college
values the right of students to complete their education in a safe and caring
environment.

Facilities: Students enjoy excellent facilities with the extensive IT
resources, including soundhouse@debney, which complements learning across all
areas of the curriculum and provides new learning in areas such as animation
and music. The college is modern and the grounds have been recently
refurbished.

Curriculum: The fundamental philosophy of the school is that “Every
child matters”. Years 7 to 9 students are grouped according to need and the
program consists of communication, investigation, recreation and design briefs.
This model of learning integrates all the traditional Key Learning Areas, but
has the benefits of integrating the skills and knowledge to promote depth of
learning and is characterised by rich tasks. Students are able to develop
strong relationships with small teams of teachers. The Later Years program
caters for wide-ranging abilities and learning styles. Programs range from
pre-VCE entry, VCE, VET and VCAL courses. Homework support programs are
available to all students, free of charge, two afternoons each week. A whole
school Literacy program (Years 7 to 12) based on the research and program
development of Dr Carol Christensen operates for all students each day.

Extra-curricular activities: Music tuition is available for a range of
instruments and there are opportunities for students to learn vocals and band
performance. The college offers an extensive sporting and camps program.

Student welfare programs: All students participate in the college
welfare program, which focuses on drug education and health promotion. The
college offers leadership programs and has a strong and active Student
Representative Council. The student welfare co-ordinator and community nurse
work closely with managers and mentors to support individual and groups of
students with identified needs.
