Location Profile

Truganina College places its learners at the centre of all that we do. The college caters for the educational and personal needs of each learner by providing an environment that inspires learning, promotes positive relationships, security and a sense of belonging within a culture of pride and respect.

Officially opened in 2015 Truganina College is located within the City of Wyndham on the corner of Clearwood and Brigalow Drives, Truganina, MEL 203 B3. The area is believed to be named after Truganini, a full-blooded Aboriginal Tasmanian woman who spent a short time in the area. In 2015, the first stage of Truganina College provided classrooms for years P-6, art, music, information technology, science and staff administration. In 2016, the second stage involved construction of facilities for years 7-9, additional specialist spaces and a gymnasium. The school has a strong focus on effective transition from Early Learning Centres and to Senior Secondary education.

The College provides high quality programs ensuring breadth and depth in all curriculum areas. The key intent of the learning program is to ensure excellence and equity through the effective teaching of literacy and numeracy.

Staff work collaboratively in Professional Learning Communities (PLCs), which support a strategic and consistent approach to assessment, curriculum planning and differentiated teaching, and learning. Student learning data and evidence is carefully monitored and used to inform best practice.

The F-9 curriculum follows the expectations and guidance of the Victorian Curriculum using the Truganina College Instructional Framework and the High Impact Teaching Strategies. The College has a culture of high expectations and a clear focus on visible learning with strong learning growth for every student.

The design of learning environments reflects the specific requirements of all disciplines and supports a diverse range of active, student centred approaches that are based around the idea of 'learning to learn', emphasising such cross-disciplinary skills as critical thinking, problem solving, communication and team work whilst using information technology to support the learning. The College has a collaborative teaching and sharing of practice, distributed leadership and the development of learning programs that are age, stage and ability appropriate.

Improved connections between spaces provide opportunities for collaboration between staff and the strategic observation of staff members in action. It also facilitates teamwork and the important work of professional learning communities.

The learning environment does allow students to make decisions about their learning. Great learning environments create these opportunities by making learners responsible for their choices and empowering them with the spaces and options that can make those choices work. Student input into decision-making does occur.

Truganina College engages in partnerships, which support the learning and wellbeing needs of students at different developmental stages and the needs of families. Partnerships involve maternal health centres, kindergartens, local schools, and tertiary providers. The school is building strong links with the community. The learning process is a joint effort between the school and the families. The language of learning is used in all interactions with the community.

When applying for a position at Truganina College, applicants need to consider the opportunities and flexibility required in growing a new school. People with a strong passion for, and interest in developing a growing school and an understanding of the commitment required are encouraged to apply. The staff work closely with the Principal and the wider school community to embed the vision and strategic direction of the school.
