School Council Elections
School Council elections are currently underway. As advised in the Compass post to all families on the 26th of February the preliminary part of the parent ballot has been suspended due to insufficient ballot papers being issued to families. Do not respond to the white ballot paper received.

School Wi-Fi Overview
The College Wi-Fi has been investigated. A report was received by Council that concluded that we have sufficient capacity. Outages this year have been caused by power issues affecting some areas of the school.
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.
We ask parents to follow the advice outlined in the Drop and Go map (click below to download).
We also remind parents to not drive on to school grounds. Parent vehicles are not to enter the Pascoe Vale Road car park or the rear driveway, it is a serious safety issue.
Please respect the use of the disabled parking bays, we have families who require these spaces for students with special needs.
Cricket School Ambassador
Strathmore Secondary College is now a Cricket School Ambassador. Over the next six weeks, specialised coaches from Cricket Victoria will be delivering clinics to our junior year levels through their “cricket blast health and PE program.”
This programs aligns to the Australian Curriculum and is an integral part of the Australian Cricket Strategy, aiming to grow participation and provide quality experiences for all students.
Interschool sport coach Mr. Soligo said “the program will help with improving the fundamentals and increase male and female participation. We have successful boys and girls cricket teams and this program will allow us to continue to build on that.”
