Melba College is a Year 7 to 12 Government Secondary School located in Croydon approximately 30km east of Melbourne. The school has $18 million of new buildings completed early in 2018. Melba College has a relentless focus on improving student outcomes, which is complimented by our ability to provide a 21st Century learning environment that our modern building designs allow.
The new buildings allow us to provide a ‘school within a school’ model whereby students spend most of their time in either the Junior Learning Building, Years 7 to 9 or the Senior Learning Building, Years 10 to 12. Such a model allows students and staff to have strong professional bonds that maximise the learning opportunities for all students and yet still obtain all the benefits of a larger school in terms of subject choices and co-curricular programs as they move through their years of schooling.
As part of students transitioning into Year 7 we have a special program called Launch Pad which runs regularly during the year, preceded by Turbo Time in the first week of school. These programs cover many different aspects of secondary school life at Melba College. The programs endeavour to increase student connections, understanding and awareness of how to be successful in the secondary school setting. The programs ensure all students are supported and welcomed into our community.
Melba College offers a comprehensive, challenging and engaging curriculum and co-curricular program. We offer a very broad range of experiences covering sport, music, performance, community involvement, cultural, social and leadership opportunities. Our college is very committed to a strong and authentic student voice whereby students are actively involved in the decision making processes in the school.
Melba College staff are dedicated professionals who are committed to helping all our students achieve their personal best and strive for excellence. We focus on students as Learners, Individuals and Citizens an approach which has produced impressive growth in many areas, evidenced by data including NAPLAN performance improvements. Our classroom learning model seeks to Engage, Enrich and Empower all students in every way possible.
School tours are conducted regularly by the Principal and bookings can be made by contacting the school on 9870 4551. School tours are a great way for prospective parents and students to ask questions and see how the school runs on a daily basis.
