Welcome to Lyndale Secondary College. It is an honour and indeed a privilege to be the Principal of this College.
Lyndale Secondary College’s students, teachers and parents make up a culturally diverse learning community. Respect and trust are fundamental to learning, personal growth and quality relationships. By putting these qualities into practice, students and staff ensure that together we achieve success. We confidently believe that high expectations empower students to be responsible for their own behaviour and learning.
Our college has an enrolment of approximately 920 students and our students enjoy the benefits and opportunities that flow from a large size school. The College offers great advantages in the breadth of curriculum offerings. There is provision for specialist learning areas and facilities, extensive staff professional development and a wide range of co-curricula programs which contribute so much to the fullest development of the student’s academic, cultural, artistic, social and sporting achievements, while still maintaining a sense of belonging essential in all great schools.
Lyndale is a student centred college environment and our students are encouraged to take up some of the many opportunities offered to participate in extra-curricular activities. Our college community have high expectations of our students in performance, attendance and behaviour and our excellent results in all these areas are a reflection of our commitment. To ensure that our students reach their full potential we provide extensive student support services that focus on course and careers planning and student welfare support.
Choosing a school can be one of the most challenging and difficult decisions a parent needs to make, as it really is an investment in your children’s future. I would encourage each and every parent to look for the school that best suits the needs and interests of their child. A school should offer an abundance of opportunities for students to explore, experience, learn, find their strengths and to become the very best person they can.
My philosophy as a Principal is that if we as a college can move each student towards a successful and meaningful future, irrespective of where or what that might be, then as a team of educators, we have fulfilled our responsibilities.
We welcome your interest in our college and I warmly invite you to contact us. I am always very happy to meet with parents and guardians. If you would like to meet with me please ring the General Office (03) 9795 2366 to make an appointment.
