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
Next week is a shorter week for all students. On Thursday and Friday, all DMSC staff will be attending the Berry Street Education Model (BSEM) professional development training. These two pupil-free days will involve teaching and education support staff learning new strategies that help to increase student engagement in their learning and improve their self-regulation, wellbeing and academic achievement. Our school is playing host to 130 visiting teachers from six other Wimmera schools, and we look forward to sharing this learning experience with them.
This professional learning means that the last day of term for students is next Wednesday. The day will end at 3.20pm as normal.
Reports and Parent -Teacher meetings for Years 11 and 12
Student reports for Term 2 have been finalised and will be available on the XUNO parent portal next Monday 20th June. Parents of students in Years 11 and 12 have the opportunity to discuss their child’s progress via phone interviews next Wednesday afternoon between 3.30 and 5.30pm. Details regarding bookings for these brief conversations have been sent to parents and can be found later in the newsletter. Please be aware that private numbers might be calling you during this time.
Tuesday marks the return of face-to-face delivery of the Wimmera Careers Expo at Longerenong College. Students in Years 10 to 12 have the opportunity to be part of this special day, which has not been held on site since June 2019. This promises to be a wonderful way for students to discover possible career pathways and to learn about new trade skills. Thank you to Mr Werner for organising the excursion and to Ms Frost and Mrs Simpson for driving the school buses.
We are thrilled to announce that the canteen will be open every Wednesday from the start of Term 3. Deb King, our Canteen Manager, has agreed to work on all five school days. I know that students and staff will be happy to have access to hot food every day of the week again.
