The International Student Program at Dromana College provides an opportunity for developing cultural exchange and awareness. Dromana College offers its international students a broad and interesting curriculum which is tailored to suit their needs and interests and is delivered by our highly committed and qualified staff. We are also proud of our extra curricula activities including sports, music and performance which further enhance the educational experience of our International students.
Dromana College has put in place various procedures and programs to assist overseas students from the time they arrive in Australia and all aspects of the program are closely monitored by our International Student Coordinator. These include regular meetings with students, host families and agents to ensure that student academic and welfare needs are being met.
International students are enrolled into mainstream classes with other members of their cohort, except for English as a Second Language classes. There is a broad elective program from which students can select subjects that they are interested in.
The role of the International Student Coordinator is to liaise with the students and the International Division of the Victorian Department of Education, the school, English Language Centre and the Victorian School of Languages. The Assistant Principal oversees the program and works closely with the Coordinator.
Dromana College offers an idyllic setting on the Southern Mornington Peninsula in which International students can enjoy a unique educational and cultural experience.

The student leaders in the Dromana College Green Team are dedicated to seeing changes occur in our world, both at our back door and the wide world beyond. The Green Team is made up of a group of students from all year levels at the college, who give up their Tuesday lunchtimes to meet and plan projects that will benefit the school community, our environment and our understanding of how each of us can ‘be the change we want to see in the world’.
Working as an enthusiastic team they plan Schools Clean Up Day, National Tree Planting Day, 40 Hour Famine, student leadership events, involvement in The Briars Environment Week and much more.
The school’s kitchen garden, The Green Spot, is maintained and improved upon by Year 9 students working within the ‘Outdoor Classroom’ workshop elective and this is just another feature of the sustainability embedded in both the curriculum and the extra-curricular activities at the college.
There has been a fantastic increase in participation and enthusiasm in the Green Team over the past few years as our numbers have swelled with students willing to give up Tuesday lunchtimes to work on our environmental and community projects. One of the projects currently under way is the Recreational Trail that is being built to circumnavigate the school’s beautiful grounds with a multi-purpose track. Students themselves are building this track and they aim to have it smooth enough for wheel-chair access. The trail also includes the path between our school and the Peninsula Special Development School.
‘The Green Spot’ School Garden has had a spectacular year of growth and use. The vegetables and herbs have been enjoyed in many ‘garden to plate’ adventures as well as going home with happy students and staff. Over first term, the Outdoor Classroom students have worked hard, planting, painting, weeding, mulching and building. The orchard and deciduous trees are growing quickly and will eventually provide some beautiful shady areas during those hotter months.
Solar Panels! We are very excited to announce that Dromana College has been successful in receiving a grant from the National Solar Schools Program. Solar panels have been installed and we are starting to use exciting new software in classes that will enable students to work with real-time effects and savings from these panels in their math, science and humanities subjects.
National Tree Planting Day has been an event of significance on the college calendar for years now and we have big plans for the planting of 800 trees in the cooler months. The Green Team will help to organize and run this event as well as the 40-Hour Famine, which is our fund-raising focus for the year. This team of committed and generous student leaders is an inspiring part of the school community.
At Dromana College we continuously nurture the talents of our aspiring sportsmen and women. School sport provides students with the opportunity to make new friends, work in a team as well as enjoy themselves by participating in competitions.
Dromana College competes vigorously in all sports. While we strive for victory and regularly achieve at state level student participation and enjoyment is even more important. All students can enjoy sports such as athletics, equestrian, football, cricket, hockey, basketball, table tennis, badminton, swimming, cross country, and tennis.
The excellent results each year are the direct consequence of the enthusiasm of our students, the efforts of our coaches and the outstanding facilities of the school. The location of the college offers students the opportunity to participate in a range of other sports and recreational pursuits including surfing, equestrian and golf.
Participation in sport within any school framework is, and will always be integral to the whole education process.
Our intra college sports are structured around a house system, where students represent and compete for their house in the major sporting carnivals. Each student at Dromana College is allocated one of our four house colours:
Three annual house events are run throughout the year: swimming, cross country and athletics. The results from these carnivals form our division teams.
The annual Swimming Carnival is held in February when the college is abuzz with excitement. An entire day of classes is given up for the annual swimming carnival. Swapping our summer dress, shorts and shirts for sporty colored clothes we all take to the pool for swimming, sliding and cheering. The Pines Forest Swim Centre had never seen such an athletic team! The action never stops as the staff keep events moving.
Many blue ribbons are won – the winners are grinners! Others enjoy participating for fun, cheering and taking in the warm summer sun. The cross country is the only carnival held at school. Each and every student completes the 2.2km course.
