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...

Principal's Report - Monday 23rd February

Welcome to Week Five; it's hard to believe, but the term is half over! Our senior students are about to face their first bout of SACs and many of the junior classes will have end of unit tests or major assessments due over the next few weeks. Please talk to your son or daughter about what is going on in their classes and refer to our Homework Sheet, attached to the weekly newsletter for further information.

Our Parent Teacher Interviews are scheduled for Monday March 23, with Student Progress Reports issued the week prior. This will be an opportunity for you to meet with your child's teachers to discuss their schooling so far this year.

Last Thursday, I attended the Darwin Defenders Commemorative Service at Horsham College, with School Captains, Andrew King and Mikayla Smith and staff member, Mr Remy Graham-Throssell. Andrew and Mikayla were both part of the official party seated on stage and both participated in various aspects of the ceremony.

Andrew read a poem entitled: "When the Bombs Fell Down on Darwin" and both captains laid a wreath on behalf of the DMSC school community. Mikayla was also asked to accompany one of the last surviving, return servicemen as he laid a wreath. It was a very moving ceremony and I was very proud of how our captains conducted themselves.

Over the weekend, Little Athletics Victoria conducted their Western Country Region, Championships at Llanberris Reserve in Ballarat. Dimboola Memorial Secondary College was well represented, with many of the athletes from Dimboola Little Athletics competing for a place in the State Championships on March 28-29. Congratulations to all of the athletes who did their best and I look forward to reading the final results in The Banner later in the week.

Tomorrow we have our school swimming carnival and I am confident that we will witness many fine performances and demonstrations of good sportsmanship in the pool. All students are expected to attend this whole school event, regardless of whether they are swimming or not. Remember to come dressed in your house colours.

School Drop Off Zones
In the interest of student safety, parents and carers are asked to drop off and pick their children up at the front of the school. If a child does need to be met at the rear of the school, the Health and Fitness Centre car park is where students should meet their parents and they must only cross the road at the top end of School Street, in line with the Art room. School Street itself is a designated bus zone. A reminder; also that the circular driveway and School Rd are 25km zones. New signs will be erected to remind people of the need to slow down during peak times of pedestrian traffic.
