Dimboola Memorial Secondary College was proclaimed in 1921 and moved into the purpose-built Soldiers' Memorial Hall on our 'hilltop' site overlooking the town of Dimboola in 1924. We have been proudly educating our district's young people in the memory of our war fallen for the century since.

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.

From our Principal - Friday 11th June 2021

How great it was to see the rain on Wednesday! Our local farming families and keen gardeners will be grateful to receive such steady rain.

The shorter week due to the Monday holiday and the new Semester Two timetable have seen many staff and students adjusting to the changes. Thank you to everyone for their cooperation in wearing masks indoors, which we will all need to continue doing until the end of term next Friday.

Good news

As of today, schools are now permitted to run excursions and incursions and visitors are allowed on site. This means that several planned excursions, including the Year 9 Rubicon Camp, will proceed as planned. Visitors to the school will now be required to use a QR code to register their attendance.

Semester One reports

These reports are now available online using the XUNO portal. Students have been shown how to access these reports, which I encourage all parents to discuss with their children. Anyone wishing to have a printed copy of their child's report should contact the school office to arrange this. Year 11 and 12 parents have the opportunity to discuss their child's progress during the parent-teacher phone meetings next Wednesday afternoon.

Interschool Sport on Monday

Good luck to our Junior and Intermediate Netball and Football teams next Monday, as they travel to Horsham to compete against other Wimmera schools. Thank you to Mr Hobbs and Ms Marra for organising this event and Mr O'Neill, Ms Kuhnell, Ms Marra and Mrs Smith for supervising and driving the students.

Careers Expo

Tuesday is the second virtual Careers Expo for all students in Years 10 to 12. I encourage students to make the most of this opportunity to gain insights into various career pathways, which may influence their subject choices in Term 3. Thanks to Mr Werner for his organisation of this event.

Senior Secondary Certificate Reform

Victoria is transforming the delivery of senior secondary education with the introduction of a single certificate. This will begin in 2023 and information on how this will affect VCAL pathways is outlined in an article from the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) found later in this newsletter. Current Year 10 students will be the first group that this change will apply to, and they will have the opportunity to have this change explained to them during their career pathway meetings next term.

Deb Ball

Unfortunately, the current Covid restrictions prevent us from holding the Deb Ball in the coming school holidays. A new date for the Deb will be set for Term 3, in the hope that restrictions will be further eased.

A reminder that Term 2 finishes at 2.30pm next Friday.
