College Council Elections 2022
Strathmore College Council carries ultimate responsibility for setting the direction and ethos of the school. It decides on broad policy issues and oversees the structure of the College’s curriculum.
Success of the College depends very much upon the efforts of a united and effective College Council.
Representatives are expected to consult with others so that the views of the College community, rather than those of an individual, are reflected in the decisions of Council. Any parent of a child enrolled at the College is eligible to stand for election as a parent member of Council (so long as the parent is not employed by DET at the College).
Click here for more information on the nomination process and nomination forms. Nominations close 4pm Monday 14th February 2022.
The Maths Faculty runs maths help sessions designed to provide extra assistance for students from Year 7 to 10 who want some help with maths. Maths teachers will be available to help students work through any difficulties they may have.
Where: Maths Learning Centre (B corridor next to maths office) & possibly B14 if required.
When: Tuesdays from 3:05 – 4:00 pm (not the first week of each term)
Tutoring for Maths
If you are thinking about hiring a tutor outside of school to work on maths skills the maths faculty has a list of local tutors that can be made available upon request. Please ask your teacher or coordinator for a copy of the list if you are interested.
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.
PLEASE NOTE - Parents are not to enter the Pascoe Vale Road carpark or the rear driveway of the school.
School Sport Victoria & Team Vic
School Sport Victoria will once again be offering the opportunity for students with emerging sporting talent from Strathmore Secondary College to register to trial for School Sport Victoria Team Vic State Teams in 2022.
Registrations to trial open on different dates throughout the year depending on the sport and age group. For information about the sports and trial dates visit https://www.ssv.vic.edu.au/team-vic/Pages/Team-Vic.aspx
Trails are not Come ‘n’ Try opportunities. They are a process for selecting a Team Vic State Team to represent the state at School Sport Australia Championships. If selected, the student will be given the opportunity to represent Victoria at a national championship. Many students from Strathmore have been selected for various sports in previous years. If you are successful at being selected into team Vic, please let us know at Strathmore so that we can recognise and celebrate your success.

Student Attendance on Compass
The school is required to record attendance for every student and every class, including the reason for each absence.
Parents and guardians must update Compass Attendance in advance if a student will be leaving the school early for appointments, or for any other reason.
Students cannot leave the school without parent or guardian approval and must not leave the school grounds without signing out at the General Office, before they leave.
Students arriving late to school or returning from appointments, must also sign in at the General Office, before going to class and an explanatory note on Compass is required.
If parents and guardians are unable to update Compass due to technical difficulties, they should telephone the Junior School Attendance Officer in the General Office for assistance.
