MAROONDAH SECONDARY COLLEGE


Maroondah Secondary College offers a caring environment and delivers a
quality education to all students, with VCE results consistently higher than the
state average. Uniform is compulsory and the college insists upon high
standards of behaviour and respect for staff and students. The local community
is largely mono-cultural of Anglo-Celtic background. The school has, therefore,
made a significant effort to internationalise its programs, establishing an
English language centre on campus and attracting and enrolling a sizeable
number of students from non-English origin, predominantly from Asian countries.

Facilities: The college is situated in a
quiet, attractive location with well-maintained classrooms and grounds.
Facilities include a shared college and community theatre and gymnasium
complex, an extensive outdoor covered area, outdoor basketball and tennis courts,
ovals, well-resourced drama and music centres as well as extensive computer
facilities.

Curriculum: A core curriculum in Years 7 and 8
is structured around the eight Key Learning Areas. At the Middle School, in
addition to a core curriculum, students are able to choose an extensive range
of elective subjects in order to prepare for senior studies, to develop a
specific interest or to work intensively on an area of weakness. Advanced
studies are available to talented students. At the Middle School, because of
its long-standing association with the Victorian Police, the school offers
students an opportunity to integrate participation in the Victorian Police
Youth Corps with their other studies. A very broad range of VCE studies is
offered to senior students. Mature-age students are encouraged to enrol and all
students have access to Dual Accreditation and certificate programs with TAFE
as well as some first-year university studies.

Extra-curricular activities: Students are able
to participate in camps, excursions, interstate tours, a wide range of sports,
instrumental music tuition and concert bands, annual musical production,
environmental group, Student Representative Council and college council
sub-committees.

Student welfare programs: An extensive
transition and pastoral care program including peer support, peer mediation and
supportive friends foster positive peer relations. Cross-age tutoring is
available to junior students with learning difficulties. Comprehensive course
counselling and vocational guidance programs are also provided. Student achievement
is high, which is a cause of great pride and reflects upon the disciplined yet
caring and supportive environment at the college.
