Rowville Secondary College’s (RSC) moral purpose is to give young people the knowledge and skills they need to be successful in a rapidly changing world and prepare them for the possibility of having a range of different jobs, some that don’t exist yet, using technology that hasn’t been invented yet. The workforce of the future will need to be creative, collaborative and resilient problem solvers.
That is why at RSC, we have adopted a strength’s based approach to education that values diversity and uses students’ passions to motivate individuals to be curious and powerful learners.
RSC provides a multitude of pathway options for every student, ensuring that each individual is provided with the opportunity to fulfil his or her potential. Our focus is on high expectations, mastery and a strong sense of the importance of learning. Working through an individual’s strengths increases confidence and promotes self-esteem. This enables students to take risks with their learning, even in subject areas and disciplines that they find challenging.
Students enrol in one of four learning programs.
All ‘Program for Students with a Disability’ students have an individual learning plan developed. These students are supported by an
Integration coordinator and team of Integration aides to assist them in working towards achieving their goals.
Our school has 1781 students with 5 Principal Class, 123 teachers and 49 educational support staff.
We cater for the health and wellbeing of students through a specific pastoral care curriculum, vertical house structure, Heads of House, Deans of Students, School Nurses, Student Wellbeing Coordinators, Educational Psychologists, Social Workers, Youth Workers and Counsellors.
