Red Cliffs Secondary College offers 6 years of secondary education, from year 7 through to year 12. Senior students can study VCE, VET and VCAL certificates.
We are the only 7-12 government secondary school in the Mildura district.
Across our schools we have a class average of 22 students per class.
Years 7 to 9
Homework tasks at these year levels may include daily independent reading, extended classwork, projects, essays, exercises and research. Generally, students will be expected to spend between 45 to 90 minutes per day on homework tasks. Some tasks may be assigned to be completed during weekends and on the school holidays.
Years 10 to 12
Generally, students can expect homework tasks in these year levels to increase to reflect the expected level of independence and initiative of students. At Year 11 and Year 12, students are expected to spend an increased amount of time completing homework tasks in preparation for VCE and VCAL. Students can expect to spend between 1 to 3 hours of homework per weeknight, and further study on weekends during assessment periods.
