FOREST HILL COLLEGE


The college is firmly focussed on enabling all students to achieve their personal best. It is very proud of the diversity that is present in the college community and continually works with students to provide opportunities for them to demonstrate their learning. Parents are provided with opportunities to be involved with their child’s learning through the assembly program, the extra-curricular activities and the transition program.

Facilities: The facilities have been redesigned to provide optimal learning conditions for students and staff. Classrooms provide the opportunity to be flexible in layout and provide stimulating colours and resources. Access to technology is available anywhere in the college, which supports students having a digital device. Students also work in the excellent double gymnasium, synthetic tennis/multi-courts and synthetic soccer field, as well as the extensive passive recreational areas. Forest Hill College also has a highly sought-after theatre complex. The library and study centre are examples of carefully planned areas for students to be involved in independent learning with staff support.

Curriculum: The curriculum caters for students at a high level of achievement through the STEM program, full access to VCE subjects from Year 10, Sports Leaders Program, International Students Program, the Deaf Facility (fully integrated) for Eastern Region, Instrumental Music, and VCAL. Parents and students are involved in a strong transition program at all levels to ensure students are making informed choices that are achievable pathways for them. The curriculum program is becoming accessible anytime for students via the college’s online learning systems. Staff working collaboratively to plan a differentiated curriculum is becoming a key feature of the way the college provides consistent and challenging learning experiences for students.

Sport: Apart from core physical education classes, students are able to access interschool sports that are provided through regular competitions with neighbouring schools and at zone and state level.

Extra-curricular activities: The college has a strong focus on student leadership, with a number of roles that involve working with staff, students and members of the community in roles such as: Student Representative Council, Music, Library, Tribes, college leadership and representation, productions, student lead activities as well as traditional academic competitions. The college supports camps and excursions that complement the curriculum program.

Student welfare programs
: The provision of a trained counsellor supported by an adolescent health nurse, chaplain and a team of year-level leaders provide a comprehensive wellbeing service for students at all levels. “Our Learning Culture” framework provides guidelines for communicating expected student behaviours for optimal learning.
