Do You Have Your Parent Portal?

on Monday, 21 August 2017.

With Student Reports due out soon it's important that all Parents and Caregivers have access to our Compass Parent Portal. If using a mobile device you can also download the Portal through your usual apps store.
What does Compass do for me?
Using Compass allows you to access up-to-date and meaningful information about our school and your child's progress.
Compass includes many different features, including the ability to:
• Monitor your child's attendance, and enter an explanation for absence or lateness
• Communicate with your child's teachers, and update your family contact details
• View your child's timetable and the school calendar
• Monitor your child's homework and assessment tasks
• Download and view your child's progress and semester reports
• Book parent-teacher conferences
• Pay and provide consent for events/excursions and school fees
To log in you will require your unique family username and password. These details were provided to you by our school at welcome Interviews.
Upon first login, you will be required to change your password and confirm your email address and mobile phone number. These details may be used by our school for SMS, password recovery and email communication throughout the year.
If you have lost your details or forgotten your password, you can recover your details by clicking the 'Can't access your account?' link on the front page.
Please note: There is Compass Parent Booklet located on the College Website under 'Student Life' which provides an overview of key features and information within Compass.

Diversity and Acceptance

on Tuesday, 22 August 2017.

As part of our Positive Week, Celebration Of Diversity In Our Community, the College invited guest speaker Mr Jason Ball.

Jason is an Australian Rules footballer currently playing in the AFL Yarra Ranges competition for Yarra Glen, a town located northeast of Melbourne. He is a passionate advocate for anti-homophobic messaging in sport. He has come out publicly as a gay player, believing same and both sex attracted, intersex and gender diverse people more generally, need a role model, and could benefit from his personal experience as a gay player in a male-dominated sport.

Jason shared his personal experience with our students, of realising he was gay at the age of 12 and then feeling that he had to hide his true identity so as not to disappoint his family and friends.  He spoke of his struggle to live a 'double' life.

For Jason, coming out to his teammates was unnecessary as they had figured it out for themselves. It turned out there was only so much he could hide, but aside from expecting the worst, his teammates were fully supportive.

2017 Carols

on Tuesday, 15 August 2017.

Dear all,

As past or potential performers at the Wallan Christmas Carols, I would like to extend the invitation for you to perform at this year's event, to be held again on the green, at Wallan Secondary College, on Saturday the 16th December. The event will be in a similar format to last year, which was a huge success. Food court and family entertainment will open at 5pm and run through until 7.15pm, when our carols program will commence, finishing with fireworks finale, weather permitting, at 9pm.

We hope to have a mix of local groups, schools, kinders, as well as soloists to perform again. If you are keen to participate, please email me on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., or call me on 0417 728 221 to discuss. The number of songs will depend on the runsheet, but if you could aim to do two songs, Christmas theme, with at least one of them a Christmas Carol, that would be terrific.

For those who have already confirmed, this is a Save the Date for you :), and feel free to put in your song requests to me anytime now onwards, as first in best "sung" for choice of carols.

I look forward to hearing from you!

Kind Regards,
Lisa Pearce
on behalf of the Wallan Carols organising team.

Parent Opinion Survey 2017

on Tuesday, 25 July 2017.

WE WANT OUR PARENTS TO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK

Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents at each school.
It is designed to assist our school in gaining an understanding of parents' perception of school climate, student engagement and relationships with our parent community. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.
