Fawkner Secondary College is a small co-educational secondary college, which operates within a distinct geographical area. The students come from ethnically diverse backgrounds and are also often dealing with complex socio-economic factors. The school is categorised as a Like School 9, with an overwhelming majority of our families receiving Education Maintenance Allowance.
Fawkner manages to have a good range of VCE studies a comprehensive VET program, and VCAL. Despite the small size there are considerable choices available for students in the Later Years. The care of students has also improved and the school is now taking good advantage of its size. Years 7 and 8 have been transformed, with small teams of teachers working closely with the students. There is celebration of student success, involvement of students in the care of the school, and improvements in the facilities provided to students, all of which seems to be enhancing the student connectedness with the school.
The school has had significant staff changes in recent times. This has provided considerable opportunities to employ staff who are willing to embrace and enhance the reform programs.
