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 14th May 2021

This week, we welcomed two visitors to the school - both former Principals, who were here to provide feedback on our school's continuing development as a Professional Learning Community Link School. Both Mr Richard Lloyd and Mr Glenn Kane observed our staff professional learning session on Monday afternoon, and on Tuesday members of the Leadership Team met with Mr Lloyd to discuss future directions and suggestions for developing our practice.

Little Desert Cross Country

A group of athletes travelled to Kaniva to represent the school at the next level of competition. Many of our students are now eligible to proceed to the Greater Western Region level of competition. Thank you to Miss Tellbach, Ms Frost and Mr Peter Hayes for accompanying these students on the day and to Miss Marra for her organisation of the excursion.

NAPLAN

Our Year 7 and 9 students completed their NAPLAN tests on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday this week. Mrs Pyers oversaw the smooth running of these tests and complimented the students on how they approached these important assessments. Feedback from the students was that they enjoyed the written task and found the reading pieces interesting and thought-provoking.

ESP Day

This Sunday is Education Support Personnel Day. We thank our ES staff for the support that they provide both staff and students in so many ways. Kaye Webb, Gaynor Baker, Donna Baldock, Julie Nooteboom, Rebecca Barry, Georgina Smith, Peter Hayes, Helen Polack, Deb King and Erich Vix all help to make our school a great place to learn and work.

Curriculum Day next week

A reminder that next Wednesday 19th May is a pupil-free day. Staff will be using this day to work together to analyse student data and develop new learning activities and ideas for curriculum delivery. This is also a good opportunity for students to ensure that they are up-to-date with their school work, as this day is exactly the half-way mark in Term 2 and exams for Years 9 to 12 start on June 9, which is not far away.
