Murtoa College is a situated in the Wimmera, 300km west of Melbourne. The surrounding area consists of a small rural community with an agricultural, mainly grains, base.
Murtoa College is a P-12 College formed by the amalgamation of Murtoa Primary School and Murtoa Secondary College in 2000. The Primary sector currently has approximately 55 students and the Secondary sector has 280 students. Whilst the Primary sector recruits only from Murtoa, the Secondary sector takes enrolments from Murtoa, Minyip, Rupanyup, Glenorchy, Marnoo and Horsham primary schools.
As the new Charter starts in the first year of the amalgamation, the focus will be on the successful integration of the two schools, as well as the successful recruitment of Secondary students from other centres.
