MESC Annual Report – 2017
“Educated for Excellence, Prepared for Life”
Mount Eliza Secondary is a medium sized secondary college with three principal class officers, forty six teachers, eighteen Education Support Staff and 547 students. It has long been known for its caring and dedicated approach to its students, the calibre of young people who attend, and the support of its parent community. These factors remain as strengths of the college as does our desire for continuous improvement, and a commitment to remain as one of the highest performing government colleges in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula areas.
The major focus for our work in recent years, and into the next Strategic Plan is around:
- The enhancement of teacher capacity
- The rigorous implementation of a culture of high expectations
- The provision of authentic opportunities for learning in local and global contexts
- The provision of a respectful learning environment where student voice is a key element
The significant shift in the college culture in recent years has been underpinned by a whole of college focus on accountability and consistency, and a genuine belief in meeting the needs of our highly capable students.
At Mount Eliza Secondary College we believe that we have an obligation to our students. This informs our work on an ongoing basis and makes us confident that we can provide a learning environment of the highest quality. We also know that as a smaller college, we can offer a degree of personalization not possible in larger settings and we are genuinely excited about our future.
