ESSENDON KEILOR COLLEGE


Essendon Keilor College is a multi-campus college comprising two junior sites at Niddrie and East Keilor (Years 7 to 10) and a senior site at Essendon (Years 11 to 12). The college provides a stimulating and vibrant learning environment and is innovative and responsive to the contemporary world. It demands high standards and takes pride in all its achievements, while appreciating the worth and potential of each individual.

Facilities: The college offers first-class facilities that include three gymnasiums with two fitness centres, substantial libraries on each campus, large assembly hall and performing arts facilities, extensive ovals and playing areas, convenient access to a leisure centre and swimming pools, canteen services on each site and college buses for student excursions.

Curriculum: Comprehensive programs for Years 7 to 10 cover the Arts, English, Health and Physical Education, LOTE, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Technology. VCE programs in a full range of studies include tertiary links in Hospitality, Catering and Electronics and VET programs in Hospitality, Music, Community Recreation and Office Administration and VCAL. Programs exist for remedial and extension work, literacy and numeracy, English as a second language, students with disabilities and overseas students.

Sport: A wide range of sporting activities including cross-site and inter-school competition to all-high level. An elite sporting program is offered in football, the most successful in Australia.

Extra-curricular activities
: Instrumental music teaching and students participate in out-of-school activities including debating, tutoring programs, dance and drama, overseas trips to Vietnam, Italy and Japan, field trips and outdoor education.

Student welfare programs: A college-wide welfare and discipline policy establishes clear guidelines for behaviour and encourages students to take responsibility for their actions in a supportive environment. The college operates transition programs from primary to secondary school, from Year 10 to the senior campus and from school to the workforce or further education. This ensures that the changes are made as smoothly and constructively as possible. A student support centre on each campus provides advice on a wide range of emotional, interpersonal, financial and learning problems. There is also a careers and work education centre on each campus offering advice on study skills, careers, course planning and plans for further education.
