2023 School Captains
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.
College Centenary - 2024
We will celebrate our school's centenary at an event on Saturday 25th May 2024. Please visit www.dmsc.vic.edu.au/centenary for more information.
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.
From our Principal - Friday 8th December 2023
Bookings for the DMSC Centenary on Saturday 25th May 2024 are now open! On Wednesday evening, School Council approved the advertising poster and program for the day. These posters will be distributed around town and other Wimmera locations, as well as being posted on facebook and the school's website. I encourage everyone to promote this special event, so that booking can be secured via the online platform. The QR code for this can be found on the poster later in the newsletter.
School Council news
At our meeting on Wednesday, we officially farewelled two councillors who have served for a number of years. Thank you to Lynley Robinson and Kylie Barry for their service to our school through their support on School Council. I encourage anyone who might be considering being on our DMSC council to discuss this with me, as we will be looking for two new members in 2024.
Annual Implementation Plan (AIP) for 2024
Our school's twelve-month plan and goals have been set. Numeracy and wellbeing will be the key goals for 2024, with our recent focus on reading and writing continuing. It is important that we ensure a consistent whole-school approach to improving the numeracy skills of our students, particularly those in our junior years, as this is a life skill. Once the final draft of the AIP has been approved, this will be available to the public via our DMSC website.
Year 12 VCE results
These will be released to students on Monday 11th December at 7am. Students wishing to seek advice regarding their ATAR scores and course preferences should contact our careers advisor Miss Kuhnell at school.
