School Council Elections 2020
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).
Follow the link for more information on the nomination process. Nominations close 4:00pm Monday 17th February 2020.

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 car park or the rear driveway of the school. Please respect the disabled parking spaces.
