Year 12 Celebration Day 2020
Congratulations to the graduating class of 2020.
The celebration day on the 29th of October was a great day for all involved and included creative and hilarious outfits.
We wish these students the best of luck in their exams and encourage them to enjoy this milestone.
SSC is delighted to announce it has purchased a set of football goals for the top oval. These goals will improve the HPE curriculum and Sport Program. Students will also be able to use them during recess, lunch and extra-curricular activities.
Student Absence Approval
Parents and Guardians are required to add an attendance note explaining absences when your child or children have been marked absent from any classes.
This is a Department of Education requirement for all students.
Unexplained absences are listed under the Attendance tab on your child’s Compass profile page. For the best possible view, it is recommended that you look at Compass Attendance in a web browser, rather than the Compass app on your phone.
You can refer to the Compass Parent Booklet available on the school website under the Parent Portal tab.
If you have queries or require assistance, please feel free to contact me directly.

During the final week of Remote and Flexible Learning, a great number of high-ability Japanese language students in years 9 and 10 participated in the Victorian Japanese Challenge run by Japanese artist, Kyoko Imazu, and the National Gallery of Victoria. Kyoko introduced students to her artwork, explained how she created her art, and then assisted students in describing artwork with various vocabulary and grammatical structures.
It was great to see so many Strathmore Secondary College students participate in the Japanese Challenge as we made up the majority of participating students across Victoria. It was a very successful program to extend the stronger students across the cohort.
The experience I had this morning was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I am really grateful that I was able to be one of the students participating in the challenge. Throughout the lesson I learnt different vocab which now allows me to have a greater understanding for the Japanese language. The session made me feel more motivated to learn more Japanese as I would now love to travel to Japan and have 1 on 1 conversations with the locals. Overall I loved this experience and would highly recommend it to students studying Japanese.
