About Us

Welcome to Viewbank College.

‘Caring for Excellence’

We invite you to browse through our new website to gain a better understanding of the College: its values, ethos, curriculum and the opportunities for rich learning. The College is proud of its strong academic standing which comes from highly motivated, committed staff encouraging students to achieve their best possible outcomes.

During 2013, the College undertook rigorous self-analysis as part of a College Review and has a clear vision for the next four years.  The College is committed to developing a whole school documented curriculum that will provide a quality focus on Ausvels and VCE. Each student will be challenged by the inclusion of scaffolded learning and the focus on higher order thinking and problem-solving. Our aim is to produce thinkers and students who can apply knowledge. The College has at its forefront, the need to provide relevant learning that gives our students a competitive edge in taking their place as the global citizens of tomorrow.

As well as offering students diverse learning opportunities in the classroom, students have opportunities to develop and explore their talents through the Enhanced Acceleration Program; the two strand LOTE Program; the Debating and Public Speaking Programs; the vibrant Music and Performing and Visual Arts Programs and the extensive Sports Program. Students are actively encouraged to be involved in the extensive range of co-curricular activities which provide enhancement opportunities. The strong Student Leadership Program dynamically promotes this ethos of involvement in the greater life of the College. As such, this builds for students connections across the College and with staff. Students need to enjoy learning, through the strong academic program and the co-curricular activities.

Viewbank College actively encourages parents to be involved through the College Council or the three parents support groups:  Friends of Music, Friends of Viewbank and Friends of the Visual and Performing Arts. When parents feel comfortable coming into the College and have a voice then what we offer is a powerful alignment of high expectations.
