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.

Respectful Relationships

DMSC would like to congratulate ex- DMSC student, Simone O’Brien on her tireless efforts as an ambassador for the White Ribbon & Family Violence prevention. This has increased the awareness of family violence within Dimboola, Nationally and globally.

DMSC continues to promote respectful relationships and educate our students and community members regarding positive behaviour.

Unfortunately, adversity may affect our community and we would like to support anyone experiencing any issues in relation to family violence. We have created a ‘Disclosure Pathways and Crisis contacts’ list for anyone in immediate need or those questioning who to seek help from in our area.
