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.
Dimboola Memorial Secondary College would like to acknowledge the traditional owners of the Wimmera Mallee area: the Wotjobaluk, Jaadwa, Jadawadjali, Wergaia and Jupagalk peoples, and pay our respects to elders past, present and future.
DMSC now has QKR!
Qkr! is an app that can be used to make payments to the school for excursions, camps, uniform(hats, beanies, bags), parent payments, computers and food from the canteen.
What can Qkr! do?
- Order and pay for your child's recess and/or lunch food (all items are on the app). You can also order days before their lunch order.
- You can pay and sign permission forms for camps and excursions – avoiding the need to sign a paper copy. All of the information about the event is on your phone to access at any time.
- Purchase a school hat, beanie or bag.
- Pay for your child's computer and Parent Payment.
- If your child has their own bank card, they can join Qkr! themselves to pay for food at the canteen.
Follow the steps on the information sheet linked below.
NOTE: Parents can still make payments using Bpay, eftpos or direct debit.

Year 12 Graduation Dinner
Last Friday was a special occasion for our Year 12 students as they celebrated the end of thirteen years of schooling. Students and their special guests enjoyed a meal together and received a bag of mementos from their time at DMSC.
Year 9 and 10 Exams and Transition
These concluded today and mark the end of 2022 curriculum for the students. Next week is the start of a twoweek Transition program for all students in Years 7 to 9, and a seven-day program for the Year 10s. They will meet many of the teachers who will be taking their classes next year and begin the curriculum for 2022. It is important that all students attend these classes to ensure that they make the best start for their learning next year.
Hindmarsh Shire Youth Council
Each year, the Hindmarsh Shire invites members of the three secondary schools within its shire to join the Youth Council. There are still vacancies on this council, which works together to promote ideas and activities for the young people within the shire. Applications are available from the front office and close next week.
Our 2022 Awards Night will be held on Thursday 15th December at 7pm in the Assembly Hall. This event recognises the successes of many students and we look forward to seeing all students and their families at the first restriction-free Awards Night in three years.
With instances of Covid cases being recorded in communities close to Dimboola, it is timely to remind everyone of the need to ensure that we continue to practise Covid-safe measures. If a student tests positive to Covid, it is strongly recommended that they stay home for five days. If you require additional RAT kits, please contact the school.
