WHEELERS HILL SECONDARY COLLEGE


Established in 1980, Wheelers Hill Secondary College is a Year 7 to 12, government school. Wheelers Hill Secondary College is committed to student achievement and excellence; a culture of high expectation, aspiration and challenge for all students, teachers and support staff; creating opportunities for every student to become a successful learner; developing a life-long love of learning; and nurturing optimistic, resilient, confident and creative individuals who act with integrity. The Wheelers Hill Secondary College community is built on the following values: the pursuit of excellence; the acquisition of knowledge and skills to inform practice, thinking and reflection; relationships that are caring, honest, respectful and considerate of others; authentic actions that apply learning and make a difference; collaborative learning and teamwork; self-confidence, independence and self-esteem; creativity, innovation and imagination; and recognition and celebration of achievement. Situated in the City of Monash in Melbourne’s eastern suburbs, the student population is drawn from a wide geographic area, with more than 30 per cent of students travelling from outside the immediate neighbourhood. Wheelers Hill Secondary College is a full-fee-paying school for international students. Approximately three per cent of enrolled students are part of this program, predominantly from China, Korea and Vietnam, adding cultural diversity and interest to the learning community. Students from the college will be life-long learners with the integrity and social skills to become valuable community members. Each year level cohort has been formed from approximately 30 primary schools upon secondary college entry. Student families are from a broad range of socio-economic backgrounds and comprise 42 different nationalities and the college provides extensive EAL support. For organisational purposes the college is divided into two sub-schools: Senior and Middle School. An extensive classroom and extra-curricular program is available at all levels with extension and enrichment programs
in place.

Facilities:
Wheelers Hill Secondary College is a “core-plus” design with well-maintained classrooms. Facilities include a newly renovated and upgraded 140-seat Performing Arts Centre, a full-size gymnasium and well-equipped library, arts and technology areas. The school is strongly committed to the innovative use of ICT to assist learning and is particularly well resourced in this area. Major upgrades and expenditure in recent years have improved classroom design and amenity while providing a new, modern Resource Centre. A designated Year 7 Learning Centre caters for flexible curriculum delivery and strengthens the Middle Years program. The grounds have undergone significant development with an ongoing planting program. This, along with the redevelopment of a new administration and staff work area, has created a thoroughly agreeable working environment for students and staff alike. Wheelers Hill Secondary College provides a high-quality learning environment that is both supportive and challenging.
