Dimboola Memorial Secondary College (DMSC) was proclaimed in 1921 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.

Black Ranges and Little Desert Combined Inter-School Swimming

Tuesday 2nd March

From our Principal - Friday 26th February 2021

House Swimming Sports

Tuesday was a much cooler day than we had experienced for some time, but the water was warm and this encouraged many of our students to participate in all events. It has been a while since we have seen the eventual winners on the day - Hindmarsh, hold the shield aloft. Our VCAL students provided the entertainment with a variety of challenges including basketball, classic catches, sponge relay, a bomb competition and the ever- popular BBQ. Thank you to Mr Hobbs and Ms Marra for their organisation of the day and the many parents and friends of the school who supported the students. Next Tuesday is the Little Desert and Black Ranges Swimming event in Horsham and we wish our DMSC representatives the best of luck.

Year 7 and 8 Camps

Reports from both camps have indicated that students at Campaspe Downs and Ocean Grove have been enjoying the activities provided. We look forward to hearing more about their adventures in next week's Hilltop. Photos from the camps can be found later in the newsletter.

Farewell to Ms Klinge

Last week was Ms Kristin Klinge’s final week before commencing maternity leave. We wish both Ms Klinge and her partner Tom all the best as they await the arrival of their second child.

School Council Elections

A reminder that nominations for a parent representative on our School Council close next Friday 5th March. I would encourage anyone thinking of joining council to give this a go, as this group helps to shape the future direction of the school. Nomination forms can be found both at the end of the newsletter and are also available from the front office.
