Golden Square Secondary College (GSSC) is a Years 7 to 10 college located in the regional city of Bendigo. The college is situated in a semi-industrial and residential area which was once the site of extensive gold mining activity typical of the surrounding landscape. The majority of the college buildings were built in the 1960s, with other major facilities such as the library and gymnasium replaced in the 1980s.

Our students come from a wide range of socio-economic backgrounds, but have a relatively homogenous cultural profile. The college has a strong Integration program and is home to the Deaf Unit for Years 7 to 10 students in the Loddon, Campaspe, and Mallee regions. The college works actively to nurture and support our less able students, while encouraging and extending those more gifted. Similarly, the college hosts alternative programs such as the Industry Skills program to assist students who find it difficult to achieve in a conventional school setting. The college also enjoys strong links with our neighbour, the Golden Oaks Village, which provides residential and nursing home care for the elderly.
