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

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.

Applications open now:


All applicants must sit the exam


More information will be sent to all applicants once they have registered their interest.

Bushfire At-Risk Register

Bushfire At-Risk Register - Schools

Dromana College Procedures for the Bushfire Season   

Fire danger ratings and warnings are used in Victoria to provide clear direction on the safest options for preserving life.                                               

Schools and children’s services listed on the DET Bushfire At-Risk Register (BARR) will be closed when a Code Red fire danger rating day is determined in their Bureau of Meteorology district.  

Dromana College has been identified as being one of those at high bushfire risk and is listed on the BARR.

Where possible, we will provide parents with up to four days’ notice of a potential Code Red day closure by letter, SMS message and also on our website at A Code Red day will be determined by the Emergency Management Commissioner no later than 1:00pm on the day before the potential closure.  Once we are advised of the confirmation of the Code Red day we will provide you with advice before the end of the school day.

Once confirmed, the decision to close will not change, regardless of improvements in the weather forecast.  This is to avoid confusion and help your family plan alternative care arrangements for your child.  It is also important to note that:

  • No staff will be on site on days where the school is closed due to a forecast Code Red day.
  • School camps will be cancelled if a Code Red fire danger rating day is determined for the Bureau of Meteorology district in which the camp is located.
  • As a bus co-ordinating school all bus routes will be cancelled.
  • Depending on which Bureau of Meteorology district is impacted bus route cancellations may affect our school.

On these Code Red days families are encouraged to enact their Bushfire Survival Plan – on such days children should never be left at home or in the care of older children.  For those of us living in a bushfire prone area, the CFA advise that when Code Red days are forecast, the safest option is to leave the night before or early on the morning of the Code Red day.

As part of preparing our school for potential hazards such as fire, we have updated and completed our Emergency Management Plan,

What can parents do?

  • Make sure your family’s bushfire survival plan is up-to-date and includes alternative care arrangements in the event that our school is closed.
  • Ensure we have your current contact details, including your mobile phone numbers.  Keep in touch with us by reading our newsletters.
  • Most importantly at this time of year, if you’re planning a holiday or short stay in the bush or in a coastal area, you should check warnings in advance of travel and remain vigilant during your stay.
  • If your child is old enough, talk to them about bushfires and your family’s bushfire survival plan.
  • You can access more information about children’s services closures on the Department of Education and Training website – see

For up-to-date information on this year’s fire season, visit the CFA website at or call the 24-hour Victorian Bushfires Information Line on 1800 240 667.

The focus of our Year 7/8 program is on providing students with exposure to a breadth of subjects and learning areas. Dromana College has a strong focus on Literacy and Numeracy, which is reflected across the curriculum; with all subjects undertaking extended timed writing tasks and having an explicit focus on developing students reading comprehension and problem solving skills.

We also recognise that the transition from Primary to Secondary school can be a daunting step and to support all of our students to transition smoothly we adopt a pastoral care approach. All Year 7/8 students have form assembly at the start of each day where they meet with their pastoral care teacher. This teacher is the first point of contact for parents and students and they will likely teach students for a core subject within the timetable. This means that Year 7/8 students are in the same class for all classes except their language elective, and will see one of their main subject teachers at the start of every day.

Dromana College also has a designated Year 7 area that for exclusive Year 7 use during recess and lunchtime. The majority of Year 7 classes will take place in the Year 7 area, with the exception of specialist subjects.

Dromana College operates on a two-week timetable, with form assemble and 4 x 72 minute sessions each day. The two-week cycle encompasses 40 sessions and is broken up as per the table below. Four Art and four Technology subjects are included within the program and students rotate through each of these four electives, completing a semester of each across Year 7 and 8.
