A very warm welcome to Yarrawonga College P-12, we value your child as part of our P-12 family along with you as the parent/caregiver. For children to thrive at the College we need to ensure that there is a strong and ongoing partnership between parents/students/teachers and the community. We are continually working on our communication between teachers and families, please ensure that you have the Compass App on your phone to receive all current information and communication when your child begins at the college.
Students developing self-awareness as learners is important and to ensure this happens over time teachers at the college provide clear guidance of learning tasks through rubrics. Next year your child’s teacher will meet with you to help you understand what rubrics are and how they work so that you are able to support your child into the future.
The college will continue to work on developing student resilience through our programs including The Resilience Project. To find out more please follow the link; https://theresilienceproject.com.au/. The college has invested heavily in Mental Health and Wellbeing supports to ensure students get the support they need in a timely way.
The College is working hard to achieve the vision of 0-99 education provision for the community. We are constantly meeting with stakeholder groups from the Local Government Area, Department of Education, Early Childhood and Adult Education/Learn Local. When successful the next stage of the Capital Works Project will see the following new facilities/resources on the Gilmore Street site;
- Year 7 & 8 classrooms
- Year 9 – 12 classrooms
- Year 7-12 Science and Creative Arts classrooms
- Gymnasium with full size Basketball Court
- College Oval
We strive to develop our student’s self-worth, independence, and a sense of community, whilst at the same time instilling the College values of Integrity, Cooperation, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility. These five values underpin all that we teach and do. We pride ourselves on providing an environment that is conducive to achieving these aims. Our College uniform is an important part of our positive environment, and we expect it to be worn with pride. We look forward to welcoming you into our College community and sharing the educational journey with your family.
