Mirboo North Secondary College is nestled in the Strzelecki Ranges and forms part of a vibrant wider community. Our school has strong relationships with various volunteer groups and we work hard to engage our students in their local communities.

Mirboo North Secondary College has a proud academic history. Our schools VCE results are consistently ranked in the top 3 Gippsland government schools. This is achieved through high expectations of our students through their approach to study, their behaviour and we rely on our three pillars – Respect, Trust and Pride.

In the senior school students can choose alternative pathways through our exhilarating VCAL and VET programs for students interested in trades and work related skill. We cater for the individual learner and offer a range of opportunities that help students to develop interpersonal skills that will hold them in good stead for their journey through life.

We provide a diverse curriculum throughout the school and students are able to pursue their passions through this as well as our extra-curricular activities – sport, music, performing arts.

Over the years we have developed curriculum programs that actively pursue community involvement which have resulted in prestigious awards such as the Innovation & Excellence award and National Environmental sustainability award. Our VCAL program has been recognised as best practice.

Our focus is on developing the whole child – and we actively allow students to pursue their passions. We have a well being team in place to assist students transit through the challenges of adolescence and provide support for their social and emotional well being.

Our highly skilled, professional, innovative and versatile staff create a safe, positive and caring environment for our students that allows student learning to reach optimal levels. Students are able to access various supports to assist them in their educational journey. Instructional practices foster problem-solving and critical thinking skills, utilising teamwork to apply knowledge to relevant, real-world issues.

I am proud to be Principal of this great school that grows, nurtures and develops all students enabling them to reach their potential.
