Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the East Doncaster Secondary College Website.

Choosing the right school for your child is an important decision and I trust the information contained within this site will assist you and your child.

East Doncaster Secondary College is a forward looking school community focussed on a firm belief that our students must be prepared for life in an increasingly complex and globally connected world. Our focus is on the development of young people with the confidence, skills and experience to excel in life beyond school. Leadership, teamwork, social and cultural awareness, and a strong sense of personal self-worth are crucial components of an East Doncaster Secondary College education.

Our students are the centre of the school. They are surrounded by an outstanding learning environment focused on emotional, social and academic development. We achieve excellent academic results because of the exemplary attitudes of our students, enthusiastic support from parents and community partnerships, and our deep commitment to teaching and learning.

East Doncaster Secondary College prides itself on getting the best from our students. We believe that students thrive when they are engaged in a challenging academic program within a nurturing environment. Our approach is aimed at ensuring our students are keen to learn and to extend themselves, that they seek out opportunities and are solution focused in their thinking. High expectations are reflected through high levels of student responsibility and in student success rates in relation to entrance to tertiary education and employment.

Collectively we will continue to empower our young people so that they, in turn, can make a difference.

Facility development over recent years, such as our Sports Stadium and Performing Arts Centre, have ensured that we have many outstanding facilities for our students and staff.  We are dedicated to students’ physical, social and emotional development and to continuing our proud tradition of success in sporting endeavours.

On a daily basis we seek to visibly demonstrate our College catch-phrase – ‘A Culture of Curiosity’.

Our staff are passionate about teaching and learning. We have a commitment to quality professional development and this means we are always exploring current research, thinking and new developments in education. How students learn and how this impacts on what and how we teach are questions that promote innovation, curiosity and creativity within our curriculum.

We are delighted that, at a time when young people are facing a world full of uncertainty, our students are leaving East Doncaster Secondary College feeling so confident, industrious and well qualified; they can shape their own futures.

I invite you to visit us. You will find our College has a warm and welcoming environment. You will soon discover that East Doncaster Secondary College is a place where challenge and choice create opportunities for every student to learn and grow.

If we can be of further help, please do not hesitate to contact the College directly.
