A message from the Principal

I am thrilled to serve as the Executive Principal of Red Cliffs Secondary College, and I am excited for the opportunities that lie ahead. Our school has a strong reputation for providing a safe and secure environment, fostering high academic expectations, and nurturing positive relationships with our students.

At Red Cliffs, we understand the significance of creating a learning environment that empowers our students to thrive academically and personally. We believe in equipping our students with the necessary skills to become productive and happy citizens in our ever evolving and changing society.

As the only Victorian government 7 to 12 school in the Sunraysia area, we take great pride in offering a comprehensive curriculum that caters to the needs and interests of our students within our community. We strive to provide a well-rounded education that fosters critical thinking, creativity, and a love for learning.

Our dedicated team of educators are committed to supporting and guiding your child through their final years of schooling. We prioritise building strong positive relationships with our students, understanding that this is essential to their success. We believe that when students feel valued and supported, they are more likely to reach their full potential.

We also have high academic expectations for our students, and we encourage them to challenge themselves and strive for excellence. We provide a range of academic and co-curricular opportunities to suit diverse interests and aspirations. Our dedicated teaching staff is always available to provide guidance and support to help your child achieve their goals.

If you have any questions or concerns throughout the year, please do not hesitate to reach out to me or any member of our team. We value your partnership and believe that open communication between the school and parents/guardians is crucial to your child’s success.

We are excited to welcome your child to Red Cliffs Secondary College and look forward to working together to create a positive and enriching educational experience. Together, we can empower your child to reach new heights and prepare them for a bright future.

Please be informed that our EFTPOS system in the Canteen is being a bit temperamental. We kindly ask that cash be your preferred payment method at the canteen for the time being.
Immunisations for year 7 and 10 students will occur at RCSC on the 7th of March. Please read on for further information. 

Year 7 and Year 10 secondary school students can receive free immunisations as part of the National Immunisation Program.

Vaccines given as part of the Secondary School Immunisation Program are delivered in school settings by nurse immunisers from local council immunisation providers.

You will receive information about providing or declining your consent for your child to be immunised. You will be asked to do this online, such as through the Central Immunisation Records Victoria (CIRV) portal.

Your child can also receive immunisations at your GP, a local council immunisation service and at some pharmacies.

Please ensure all parent approvals for the upcoming Swimming Sports are submitted ASAP on compass. Your approval ensures your child's participation and access to this exciting event!

Remember, while swimming is encouraged, it's not mandatory. Students are welcome to soak up the lively atmosphere, cheer on their teammates, participate in the land competitions, and enjoy the camaraderie of the day! Please note that no student is permitted to remain at the pool after the event concludes. All students will walk back to school for dismissal.

A few important notes:
• Students must wear enclosed shoes when walking to/from the pool. Thongs are allowed in the pool area.
• Students without permission will be supervised in class at school.
Because in VCE Physics we can play with Hot Wheels cars. What a great way to learn about motion!
