Irymple Secondary College is set in the heart of the Sunraysia in the far north-west of Victoria. Mildura is the closest large town to Irymple and is approximately five kilometers from the college. Irymple is 550 kms from
Melbourne and 400 kms from Adelaide. Sunraysia is primarily a grape growing area, but also has a large variety of other horticultural industries which thrive on the irrigation supplied by the Murray River. It is also a significant tourist destination.
The college was established in 1968 and until the late eighties was known as Irymple Technical School. A district reorganisation of schools occurred in 1995 and Irymple Secondary College became a Junior College catering for students in Years 7–10, with most students continuing their education at
Mildura Senior College.
Many of our students are from lower middle class families whose incomes are derived from local horticultural industries and these are often subject to seasonal adjustment.
