As Principal, I would like to welcome you to the Tallangatta Secondary College website and 2019 school year.
Tallangatta Secondary College strives to deliver high quality state education, providing a student – centred learning environment that is ‘Big enough to deliver and small enough to care’.
Tallangatta Secondary College operates a vertically integrated unit system of curriculum We offer semester and term length units of study in domains of the Victorian Curriculum. We also offer extensive pathways offerings in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Vocational Education and Training (VET) and Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL). A Career and Pathways coordinator ensures no student leaves school without a pathway to further education, training or employment.
Growth Point Average (GPA) is the reporting framework we use to measure students’ levels of effort and application to their studies. This reporting framework ensures teachers, families and students work together to promote and monitor positive learning habits and behaviours. In addition to the GPA, each student showcases their learning, along with personalised feedback from their teachers through Student Led Conferences (SLC) which are held each term.
Dedicated staff lead numerous programs to further extend student engagement such as the Duke of Edinburgh, Work Experience, Writers Festival, Advance CFA Youth Crew, Sport, Debate, School Production, extensive Outdoor Education program, Instrumental Music and Camps including biannual Central Australia Camp and Overland Trek in Tasmania. We have strong links with our sister school, SMK Datuk Peter Mojuntin in Malaysia and a visit to our sister school is planned for 2020.
Our school values – Respect, Empathy, Attitude and Learning (REAL) are our expected behaviours. Our values guide the actions we take and interactions we have. Students, teachers and parents all have a responsibility to actively promote, support and model the values of the school.
