As Principal, I would like to welcome you to the Tallangatta Secondary College website and 2023 school year. We strive to deliver high quality state education, providing a student – centered learning environment that is ‘Big enough to deliver and small enough to care’.
Our Vision is to empower all to become resilient and confident lifelong learners with a strong sense of self and community.
Our Values are RESPECT, EMPATHY, ATTITUDE and LEARNING
Our Learner Dispositions – we harness learner agency and empower students to become resilient, resourceful, relating, and reflective learners.
We are committed to providing a broad range of curriculum and extra-curricular programs, whilst maintaining a student-centered approach to meeting individual student needs.
Students in Years 7-10 participate in a common curriculum at their year level to ensure access to all core learning areas (English, Maths, Science, HPE, Humanities). Students also select from the areas of Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Technology (Food, Metal and Wood) and LOTE (Indonesian). In addition to this, Year 9 students in Term 4 undertake the Future Makers program.
We also proudly offer extensive VCE offerings to students in Years 11 – 12 to ensure a managed individual pathway approach is taken as students’ transition through their senior years of schooling. A Job Skills and Pathway coordinator ensures no student leaves school without a pathway to further education, training, or employment.
The College offers a broad range of co-curricular programs including; CFA Youth Crew, Tallangatta Herald Newspaper, Peer Support program, extensive Instrumental Music and Sport program, engaging camps including Biennial Northern Territory tour and Overland Trek.
School Wide Positive Behaviour Support framework (SWPBS) builds a positive learning environment, along with 7 – 12 REAL homegroups each morning. Each child is allocated a REAL Learning mentor to support them during their six years at the College. The College wellbeing team includes a school nurse and Mental Health Practitioner.
Thank you for visiting the website and please do not hesitate to contact the College if you require any further information.
