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.

Argyll Tasmania Camp
Argyll Year 9 and 10 Tasmania camp took place last week with 40 students attending.
Students had the opportunity to visit important cultural sites such as Port Arthur, natural wonders such as Mole Creek glow worm caves, and take part in activities that pushed them beyond their comfort zone such as jet boating. The group flew into Hobart and returned to Melbourne on the Spirit of Tasmania.
Students were good representatives of the school and many have said how much they enjoyed the camp.

The SSC team consisted of Claire Semmens, Amanda Williamson, Amy Tran, Lia Aguilar, Ellanah Georgantonis, Georgia Duggan, Mia Burlak, Katie Baynes with Thomas Evangelou as the Assistant coach and Mr Soligo as Coach.
