Kimberley Tempest
College Principal

Cobram Secondary College is entering an exciting phase of renewal with the appointment of a passionate and highly experienced school Principal.  Our focus is to develop caring and locally connected students who believe in and take pride in belonging to the community.

Being Local, we know our students, run small classes, and provide an extensive VCE and VCAL program.  We care.

 

Our students learn locally, live globally.

Our students are the community leaders of tomorrow, with a broad range of access to leadership programmes within our community and beyond. Our Advance Program is designed to build the leadership capacity of young people through the completion of CFA Cadets and Duke of Edinburgh’s Award.  This complements the range of student voice options, and has opened the doors to National and International Leadership opportunities such as the United National Model Convention, Rural Youth Ambassador, Education State Student Advisory Board, and the Global Young Leaders Conference in New York. 

 

Our students give back to the local community in roles such as Scouts/Venturers, CFA Youth Cadets, local Sporting and Coaching and Captaincy roles and in the workforce.

We introduced an Illuminate session for all students in 2017 and have found this to be a highly effective program. All students undertake 19 minutes of reading every morning in Years 7-10, where they are taught a variety of skills to support their literacy development. 

An extensive music program is offered and opportunities abound in areas of Debating, SRC, Sport, Community Links, Cultural activities, Advance, Production, Arts Events, Camps, International excursions & exchanges, and many subject based excursions. 

 The College has a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) Computer program which includes a program that allows students to have access to a computer through a college borrowing system, where needed.

To fully support our students resources are allocated to provided a Student Welfare Coordinator, School Nurse, Disabilities & Impairment program staff, Pathways Manager and a Student Attendance & Data Officer. 
 
We are an inclusive college adhering to student's needs and focus on building strong working relationships with students and their families in their learning journey.
 
Our exceptionally maintained grounds enhance our environment, plenty of covered and grassed areas are available to students.
