Drop & Go Map - Strathmore Secondary College
Strathmore Secondary College and Moonee Valley City Council are committed to creating a safe and more sustainable environment for students. Walking and cycling to school is a great way for your child to start the day, as it stimulates the mind and improves overall health.
This map has been created through the Better Moves Around School Program, this program brings Council and schools together to improve safety and encouraging walking, cycling and the use of public transport.
Moonee Valley Council has identified Drop and Go locations for Strathmore Secondary College students, each location is within a comfortable walking distance.
The map has been designed to encourage more students to walk to and from school at least part of the way to reduce congestion in Pascoe Vale Road.
Strathmore Secondary College is very appreciative of the support of Moonee Valley Council and encourage the College community to support this initiative.
Moonee Ponds Police have contacted the school. There has been numerous complaints regarding the roads around the college carpark. They have informed us they will be monitoring Pascoe Vale Road and Pascoe Avenue for illegal / dangerous parking and stopping.

Top Designs Excursion – Visual Communication Design
Students from the year 12 Visual Communication Design class visited Melbourne Museum on Tuesday 14th May to view the Top Designs Exhibition.
Top Designs features high achieving folios and final works from schools across the state, covering many different disciplines including Media, Visual Communication, Product Design & Technology and Theatre Studies.
Our students viewed the Visual Communication folios, getting inspiration and guidance for their own work. We also attended a forum, hearing about the professional design practice of Communication designer Chris Murphy from Motherbird Studios.
It was a busy and motivating day, and the year 12s are excited to apply their new ideas to their own folio work.
