Welcome to Neerim District Secondary College, a unique secondary school setting. We are pleased to invite you to join us in a learning partnership where every teacher knows every student and their individual learning needs, strengths and goals. Your child will be well-known in our school community and supported throughout each step of their educational and developmental journey.
Mike Shone - Principal
At Neerim District Secondary College we live and breathe the philosophy of “education for life”. We believe that success is about the quality of the journey – the nature of the experiences along the way – and not just the endpoint. Our College is focused on achieving success for all students and our aim is to send our students into the world as well-rounded, capable, caring young individuals. We provide particular support and opportunities to all students to aim high in their personal learning goals, to improve and excel.
As a small year 7 – 12 school we are able to offer a range of leadership, academic, sporting and personal development opportunities:
- With over 30 leadership positions in a number of different areas.
- Kwong Lee Dow Young Scholars Program (through the University of Melbourne)
- Zone, Regional and State levels in sport
- Early Access to VCE and University Courses
- A rigorous and engaging VCAL program
Our school encourages all students to adopt and practise the college values of:
To be considerate of the feelings, wishes and rights of others.
The action of leading or guiding others, being a positive role model.
Continuing to do your best despite difficulty or delay in achieving success.
A sense of being to NDSC, to work for the benefit of all.
