Our guiding principles are:
Supporting all students to achieve their personal best
Recognising the diverse backgrounds, cultures, talents and aspirations of our students and providing rich learning opportunities for all
Developing the knowledge, skills and personal attributes that will enable our students to lead successful lives beyond school
Our guiding principles are also reflected in the three positive behaviour expectations that we hold of every member of our community:
To be RESPECTFUL
To be RESPONSIBLE
To be a LEARNER
Hume Central Secondary College, located in the City of Hume, serves the Broadmeadows area with a total student enrolment of approximately 1,200 students and growing, Hume Central Secondary College is the outcome of the Broadmeadows Schools Regeneration Project.
The strength of Hume Central Secondary College is our strong commitment as a Learning Community to nurture and develop confident learners who have the knowledge, skills and attributes to shape their futures and contribute positively to society. Our vision is achieved through the commitment of all members of the College Learning Community.
The College has three state-of-the- art Campuses, two Year 7-9 Junior Campuses located at Blair Street and Dimboola Road and a Year 10-12 Senior Campus. The Blair Street Campus also includes the Hume Central English Language Centre, a Year 7-10 facility providing for the language learning needs of newly arrived students to Australia.
Each of the three Campuses features an environmentally friendly design with plenty of natural light to ensure optimal learning conditions for our students. Our focus is on the learner and their learning needs in a safe and secure environment. The new building designs reflect flexible learning spaces enabling different size groupings for students to work in a variety of ways.
The academic success of our students is ensured by a new and updated Year 7-12 curriculum combined with dedicated teachers and support staff to teach and nurture students. Our focus is keeping all students engaged and interested in their education so they stay on to successfully complete Year 12. Our excellent results in VET, VCAL and entry to University or TAFE can only happen when our students, parents and teachers work together in partnership.
An important focus of our College is to support our students to learn effectively and to develop positive attitudes and behaviours. We endeavour to provide the kind of environment that will effectively nurture their development and a feeling of belonging or connectedness to school.
All our staff and College Council regard most seriously the trust which parent/carers place in us and are sensitive to the need for regular communication so that we work together as a learning community to prepare students for successful lives in the future.
