Dimboola Memorial Secondary College (DMSC) was established in 1923 and is unique in the sense that it is the only Memorial School in Victoria.

DMSC is a small rural secondary college situated in the Wimmera Region 36 km from Horsham. It is a traditional secondary college in its curriculum design but prides itself on its broad senior offerings including VET/VCAL and VCE pathways.

Everything we do at DMSC is designed to deliver ever improving learning experiences and outcomes that will enable all students to leave DMSC with the skills, knowledge, behaviours and values that drive quality life experiences. read more...

DMSC is a Child Safe School

Good Luck to our students who are sitting exams!

Principal's Report - Tuesday 15th November 2017

Thank you to our 2018 School Captains, Danni Haebich and Tristan Rayes and Leading Teacher, Mrs Charlotte Pyers, for their presentations at our Remembrance Day commemorations last Friday. Staff reported that all students were incredibly respectful and attentive throughout the short service. Please see photos later in the newsletter. It was my pleasure to accompany the Year 9-10 Outdoor Education class to Port Fairy last week. The two night camp commenced on Wednesday afternoon and we returned, somewhat exhausted, on Friday evening. It was wonderful to see some of our students push beyond their current skill levels and tackle new activities such as surfing and standup paddle boarding. (And push way beyond my own skill levels too!) Thank you to Mr Watts and preservice teacher, Mr Oswald, for attending the camp – our students are fortunate to have these opportunities and enthusiastic staff who are willing to go. Please see the photos later in the Hilltop.


Year 12 VCE exams are drawing to a close, with the last assessments for our students on this Friday. Thank you to Mrs Thomas for overseeing the process from a school level and also to our Chief Supervisor, Mrs Wendy Byrne, and assistant supervisors, Mrs Kellie Laverty and Mrs Kelly Henderson. The VCE results will be released at 7.00am on Friday December 15. Students should have registered to receive their results via SMS. If they need assistance, please contact Mrs Thomas at the college.

Year 11 Exams and Step-Up Program

Exams for Year 11 students commence tomorrow and run through until Friday. Exams are compulsory. Next week, our orientation program for Year 12s in 2018 commences. All students are required to attend for the full week, course work will be commenced and details regarding holiday homework will be distributed. Year 11’s last day is Friday November 24.

Deb Ball 2018

At this stage, we have only received three forms from girls who are interested in making their debut next year. We have also received two forms from boys. This is not sufficient numbers to conduct a ball, so I encourage all students to return their forms asap if they wish to participate. We have received definite responses from two parents who are keen to help and a further two forms from parents who are happy to help if needed. Again, this is not sufficient numbers for a committee if we wish to ensure the smooth organisation and running of the Deb Ball. Can I encourage parents to please return their expression of interest forms so a meeting can be scheduled as soon as possible.


Tomorrow, we have the Rev John McMahon speaking to our students. We are fortunate to have the Rev in our school and I am looking forward to hearing very positive reports about his presentations. Thank you again to Des and Robyn Lardner from the Dimboola Community Pharmacy who are providing sponsorship for this event to take place and to Mr Lyndon Kuhne who has made the arrangements for the day.
