At Maffra Secondary College, ‘High levels of student learning is central to everything we do’. This vision is underpinned by three key focus areas: teaching and learning (curriculum and pedagogy), orderly classroom environment conducive to student learning and clear, consistently implemented wellbeing and engagement expectations. We provide a positive learning environment that engages and instils knowledge, skills, attitudes and values, empowering our school community to strive to be life-long learners. Our students are encouraged to be actively involved in improving the school environment and to contribute to the local community. The college has a cohesive and professional leadership team with a focus on working collaboratively to develop teaching skills for all teachers that will improve student learning outcomes.

Curriculum: Classes across the college integrate the use of AfL, differentiation to at least three levels in the classroom, Blooms taxonomy to set higher order tasks, moderation of Common Assessment Tasks in all subject areas, Habits of Mind, Positive Behaviour Support, self-reflection and a strong relationship with each individual student to maximise learning growth. A broad range of subjects is offered at VCE, along with VCAL and VET courses with high completion rates. A high percentage of students go on to study at University and other tertiary providers Our school has a strong sporting, outdoor education and camps program, instrumental music, school productions, and Future Leaders programs with an emphasis on leadership development, personal growth and community service. Our well established careers pathway team provides excellent student guidance and support, starting from year 8.

Student welfare programs: The engagement and wellbeing of our students is sustained by our Wellbeing team consisting of a wellbeing leader, school counsellor, school nurse and chaplain, who all work proactively to deliver programs to improve the physical and mental health of our students. The Positive Behaviour Support framework and school values are well established. Students are taught to have Respect for one another and their teachers, to be Independent Learners, to contribute to their Community, to look after their Environment, and to always strive for their highest standard possible.
