Respect, Learn and Achieve. Three behaviours, three dimensions and three values that Roxburgh College and its diverse school community strive for and represent. Roxburgh College is a Middle and Later Years (Years 7 to 12) Secondary School in the heart of Roxburgh Park, a relatively new locality in the Northern Area of Melbourne. The present enrolment of 1320 students indicates that it is a large school that consequently offers students access to a vast range of educational opportunities and state-of-the-art facilities including a double gymnasium and auditorium. The college works actively to promote a safe and supportive learning environment through its range of tolerance and support programs and a well-established discipline process. The social, emotional and academic development of students is nurtured. The welfare and discipline policy facilitates awareness of individual rights, school rules and self-discipline. A strong student services support team is co-ordinated by the student welfare co-ordinator. Other support services at the school include integration, ESL, homework club, breakfast club, leadership programs and parents’ clubs. Roxburgh College recognises the dual purpose of maximising the high academic achievement of each student as well as providing opportunities for their individual and social development. The school promotes the all-round personal development and self-esteem of each student. It encourages the development of courteous, articulate and thoughtful attitudes. Teachers actively assist students to develop sound study habits in both the Middle Years (Years 7 to 9) and Later Years (Years 10 to 12) Mini Schools. A high standard of personal conduct is required and the wearing of school uniform is compulsory.
Curriculum: In the Later Years (Years 10 to 12) the range of VCE, VET and VCAL studies is comprehensive and unchallenged in the district with 51 per cent of the graduating Year 12 cohort receiving university offers and the remainder finding alternate pathways through TAFE or employment.
Extra-curricular activities: A wide range of co-curricular activities is offered including music, drama, academic enrichment, debating and sport. The school has a strong commitment to student leadership and Student Voice.
Student welfare programs: A comprehensive range of student wellbeing support staff is available to assist the educational pathways of students throughout the college. A variety of student support and development programs are offered.
