Dromana College encourages and celebrates personal improvement. We recognise and respond to diverse student needs. We set high expectations for all students and have a strong focus on academic achievement and the pursuit of personal excellence. We encourage and support creativity, innovation and initiative for young people by helping them to reach their aspirations in different fields of life. We provide high quality teaching and a safe and caring school environment.
Our purpose is to provide effective learning for all students.
To provide a caring, inclusive and sustainable community in which students develop skills and personal qualities necessary to participate positively and confidently in a changing, global community while striving to achieve their personal best. We practice our school values of Respect, Responsibility, Integrity and Personal Best.
At Dromana College we believe that strong values provide a framework for all members of the school community to conduct themselves. The college recognises its responsibility to ensure that as an educational community the college functions on the basis of respect and consideration for all members. We believe that the modelling of these consistent and positive values gives purpose and direction to our lives and enhances the teaching and learning environment.
In choosing to be a part of the Dromana College community, students are committing to six years of secondary education and to demonstrating behaviours which are conducive to learning and reflect a commitment to the college values.
Dromana College expects all students to demonstrate respectful behaviour in their dealings with each other and with staff members and, no student has the right to disrupt the learning of others, which provides the basis for a caring environment where students clearly understand their rights and responsibilities.
The college seeks to develop in students a sense of responsibility and self discipline which emphasises respect for others. Conduct not consistent with respect for others and their right to learn may be the subject of processes and consequences relevant to the seriousness of the alleged behaviour.
Our school motto is:
‘Empowering young people to make a difference’
