2019 SCHOOL REVIEW

2019 College Council Nominations

All government schools in Victoria have a school council. They are legally formed bodies that are given powers to set the key directions of a school within centrally provided guidelines. In doing this, a school council is able to directly influence the quality of education that the school provides for its students.

The College Council is a voluntary body comprising representatives from across the college community.  The council meets on a monthly basis between February and December.  Parents on school councils provide important viewpoints and have valuable skills that can help shape the direction of the school.  Those parents who become active on a school council find their involvement satisfying in itself and may also find that their children feel a greater sense of belonging.

The College Council provides advice to the Administration Team and facilitates consideration of a range of key strategic initiatives that support the mission statement of Dromana College – ‘To provide a caring, inclusive and sustainable community in which students develop the skills and personal qualities necessary to participate positively and confidently in a changing, global community while striving to achieve their personal best’.

A key platform of the College Council is the Strategic Plan.  This document sets the foundation of the College Council and identifies the key areas of interest and attention on an annual basis.  The document represents focused discussion on a range of issues of importance to our school that will ultimately create a better school environment for our students.

During recent years the College Council has addressed many strategic issues.  These reports have been prepared and presented by members of council as well as the Principal and members of the Management Team.  Some of the recent strategic issues that have been considered by council include school bus program, extensive sports program, Healthy Food Campaign, school security and student safety.   

Parents or interested persons wishing to make representations to the College Council are invited to complete the election nomination forms. Nomination forms must be returned to the College by 4.00pm Thursday 28 February 2019.  Any queries can be directed to Deanne Aubert at the College on 03 5987 2805 or via email aubert.deanne.d@edumail.vic.gov.au

2020 LEAP Applications

LEAP at Dromana College 

 

Fast track to high achievement                                   

What is LEAP?

The Learning Extension and Acceleration Program [LEAP] is offered to a limited number of capable and committed students whose academic skills are above those of their peer group. LEAP students are presented with a challenging curriculum that allows them to investigate and explore topics in a classroom with like-minded students.

How does the program work?

LEAP is open to students who have enrolled at Dromana College and are entering Year 7 in 2020. The students remain in the same class for two years. In Year 9 the LEAP students are able to choose and specialise in the areas of their interest, whilst still enjoying the challenges of the curriculum.  In the junior years, the students will experience acceleration in the curriculum that caters to their needs. The LEAP students are also offered all the extra curriculum activities that Dromana College offers. These students participate in sport, camps, clubs and a range of pastoral programs with their peers. This encourages our LEAP students to be involved in the broader social aspects of school and encourages a number of leadership opportunities.

 

How to apply for LEAP

LEAP is suitable for academically talented students who have a level of maturity and commitment. They need to be capable of learning independently and be able to work in group situations. It is expected that LEAP students and all Year 7 students will have a laptop.

Based on these results, students will be offered a place in LEAP for 2020. Places are limited and are based on academic merit.
