Our College is recognised as a state leader in teaching and learning, student relationships and wellbeing. We create a safe social and physical environment that helps all our students learn and succeed. I am pleased to report that our dedicated approach to teaching and learning is seeing real benefits for our students.
All 2018 Year 12 students successfully applied for a tertiary placement with the majority getting their first preference; our student body is also above the state average in all measures of NAPLAN, performing exceptionally well in Reading and Numeracy.
I would like to congratulate all of our 2018 VCE students on achieving the best results in the school’s history. Their outstanding achievements:
- 16% of our Year 12 students achieved ATAR’s over 90,
- 9.8% of study scores were in the 40’s,
- with a median study score of 30.
Also congratulations to three of our top VCE students who were in the top 1% & 2% of the state of Victoria:
- Sabrina Berg, a School Captain and College VCE Dux for 2018 with an ATAR score of 99.3
- Gus MacPherson with an ATAR of 99.03; and
- Annie Ea, our Vice Captain from last year who achieved two perfect study scores of 50 for English and Health, with an ATAR of 98.95
The Department of Education has also awarded Mordialloc College the highest performance rating as an ‘influence school’. Less than 10% of all Victorian schools have received this award.
As a leading co-educational public school in the City of Kingston and surrounding areas we emphasise developing and maintaining positive relationships. We focus on getting to know each student as an individual. This personal approach ensures we provide individual support and access to opportunities that are suited to each student’s chosen fields of interest.
Parents and visitors compliment us on the warm and orderly school atmosphere and our strong sense of community. We encourage all our students to develop high expectations about themselves, their work and their behaviour, which is an expression of our values of Personal Best, Integrity, Respect and Responsibility.
Our approach involves working with parents to meet the individual needs of every student, and supporting them to fulfil their academic and co-curricular goals and dreams. The broad range of opportunities and pathways offered in the senior school, including VCE, VET and VCAL, cater for the diverse interests, needs and abilities of our students. Over the past seven years we have had consistent success, with all Year 12 students who applied for a tertiary placement being successful.
As one of the few accredited schools to provide the SEAL program (Select Entry Accelerated Learning) and part of the exclusive SEAL Academy, the College offers support for advanced learners.
Our students are engaged and enjoy coming to school, as reflected by the Student Attitudes to School survey results where we continue to score well above the state average, in fact in the top 10 – 20% of the state on variables such as effective teaching and stimulated learning, high expectations for success, effective classroom behaviour and school safety. There is a genuine sense of community amongst teachers, students and parents, which we are all very proud of.
In a world that rewards perseverance, resilience, initiative, problem-solving and cooperation, our students leave well prepared for tertiary education, vocational training or employment. I am proud of the significant accomplishments of our students and the results our College has achieved in being a better choice in education
