GOVERNMENT - SECONDARY - CRANBOURNE SECONDARY COLLEGE - CRANBOURNE
CRANBOURNE SECONDARY COLLEGE
Address: Stawell Street, Cranbourne
Phone: 5996 7878
Cranbourne Secondary College was established in the mid-1970s to serve the growing town of Cranbourne.
Founded in 1975 with a single Year 7 level and originally called Cranbourne High School, it celebrated its 40th birthday in 2016. There were not a lot of homes in the area at the time so students came from as far as Doveton and Langwarrin. The original uniform was a maroon jumper and grey pants. The school motto “While We Live We Grow” was adopted and was a reflection of the personal growth of the students as well as the community. From that first class over 40 years ago, Cranbourne Secondary College now has a population of over 1300 students. This is projected to increase by 15% over the next 5 years. The changing demographics of the area is reflected in the increased number of students for whom English is an additional language.
The physical environment has undergone significant change in the school’s history with 2 stages of a 3 stage building master plan already completed. Stage 3 has commenced with the Visual Arts Centre being opened in 2018. The final stage will deliver a new Science and Wellbeing Centre and these facilities will help deliver strong pedagogical links to support an ambitious program to build teacher capacity and improve student learning growth. The College’s Student Attitudes to School survey results show that wellbeing and engagement is very strong and well above the state average in nearly all areas.
A strong co-curricular program, Pastoral Care at Years 7-10, and an extensive Wellbeing department are significant in contributing to student wellbeing. In 2004 Anita Templin introduced the MultiPride program into the school enabling students to promote wellbeing and harmony at the College.
The college offers a strong VCAL program alongside VCE and has developed pathways and connections with many partners, including Deakin, Monash University and the Australian Business and Community Network (ABCN), which has seen many of our students awarded scholarships and mentorships with industry leaders.
Cranbourne Secondary College shares a theatre with the City of Casey and provides an exciting platform for Performing Arts both at the school and from the Cranbourne and surrounding community.
Cranbourne Secondary College is recognised as a leader providing an inclusive curriculum that caters for the diverse and changing needs of the community.
