Welcome from the Principal

Welcome to Montmorency Secondary College where the educational journey of every student is reflected in our school motto Pride in Achievement. It is a College where our core values of achievement, courage, trust, friendship, happiness and teamwork are proudly on display in every aspect of this journey. Every student is warmly welcomed and afforded the opportunity to experience success and to reach their full potential in a learning environment that promotes academic excellence and a sense of community, as well as a social conscience and mutual respect for all individuals.

Our College both values and encourages trusting and positive relationships between students and teachers and also between families and staff. The foundation for this is a highly relevant, stimulating and engaging curriculum that caters for the needs and pursuits of all students and engenders in them a love of lifelong learning and a positive work ethic.

Student Leadership is an important cornerstone of College life and learning. Students have a genuine voice in all aspects of schooling and policies and are highly regarded in the Montmorency community.

Every year we have been extremely proud of our graduating VCE, VET and VCAL students who have been outstanding role models, both in terms of achievement and behaviours, to our younger students. Our College community projects a strong, enthusiastic and positively focussed culture which has seen our students’ academic results grow and excel in our region. Our impressive VCE results in recent years have made us a school of choice in our area.

Located in delightful parklands by the Plenty River, the College has outstanding facilities and resources. The College underwent extensive refurbishment in 2018. Our general classrooms were reconstructed, and they are now light, spacious and beautifully appointed with new state-of the-art technology to support teaching and learning.

A purpose built Drama room was constructed to complement our existing 420 seat Auditorium and to allow the Performing Arts of the College to continue to thrive and grow. Three design studios were added – for Art, VCD and Ceramics. The Woodwork and Metal Work area was completely re-modelled and state of the art machinery was added. This allows the innovative designs of our students to become a reality. The Science faculty received a major upgrade, with purpose built Labs for each of the science domains of Biology, Chemistry and Physics, providing modern facilities for science investigations and deeper learning

The Administration area of the College was moved so that it faces the Dobson Road entrance, creating more car parking, easing traffic congestion and making student travel safer. The exterior of our College facilities has been greatly enhanced by carefully planned pathways, entrances and exits. The new design has been complemented with extensive lawn areas, gardens and creative landscaping.

Montmorency Secondary College (in conjunction with Eltham Wildcats Basketball Club) was recently granted 16 million dollars to build a major new sporting complex, expanding the current twin court stadium into a five-court stadium with more seating, change rooms and meeting rooms.

I look forward to your involvement in our College and can assure you that our dedicated staff will provide outstanding educational opportunities and outcomes for your student.
