From the Principal
Welcome to the 2014 school year at Melton Secondary College.
The year has started well with students returning form summer holidays looking refreshed from their break and enthusiastic to learn. The College continues to experience an increase in enrolments and as well as a larger cohort of Year 7 students, classes at most other year levels have filled to capacity.
Starting a new school year is an exciting time for students. It opens up a myriad of possibilities for learning about the world, about each other and ourselves. Taking advantage of these opportunities requires an open mind and a disciplined manner, a commitment to support others and a willingness to strive to achieve your best each day.
At Melton Secondary College we see our motto of Academic Excellence as a goal for every student to strive towards and we work to instill the qualities that will lead to success.
Our students achieve excellent results across all curriculum areas and programs. Our three Curriculum Specialism areas: Science, the Arts and Sport are developing great enthusiasm amongst students as is our High Achievers ACE program. A strong Student Leadership and Voice program is ensuring that students have a say in their learning and develop leadership skills for life. Further information about these programs is available on this wesbite.
We also know that young people cannot succeed at school without parents and carers working in partnership with their child's school. Students need to know that their parents are not only informed about what is happening in their classes, but they are also working together with the school to set high expectations and to acknowledge success when these expectations are met.
This year the College will enhance its partnership with parents by sharing information about each students' progress more effectively through more regular reporting of student progress, SMS messaging of student absences and a new Parent Portal which will provide access to College events and information.
