Location Profile

Lynall Hall Community School (LHCS) is a small, progressive and inclusive government secondary school (7-12), located in inner-city Richmond, with a senior secondary campus on the Merri Creek in Coburg. LHCS caters to a small but diverse cohort of young people. Our team of teachers, education support workers, clinicians and youth workers collaborate closely to maintain an environment that is inclusive and supportive of at-risk and vulnerable young people.

Our vision is to be a collaborative community of learners participating in positive relationships, critical thinking, creativity and active citizenship.

Our mission is to provide all students with a personalised learning program within an environment of strong, supportive relationships.

Our objective is to engage students in the Victorian Curriculum, VCE, VCAL and VET (transitioning to VCE Vocational Major in 2023) within a framework of School Wide Positive Behaviour Support and Respectful Relationships to prepare them for a positive post-school pathway.

At Richmond we offer a program based on the Victorian Curriculum for Years 7-10 with additional programs to support the social-emotional development of our students. Student timetables are frequently modified to meet their specific needs. Years 7-10 programs lead into flexible senior secondary options based on VCE (including VCE Vocational Major) and including a range of VET subjects.

At Coburg students work towards completing a VCE Vocational Major with an intensive focus on VET workshops (Automotive, Building and Construction, Furniture and Cabinet Making, Horticulture, Music, or Hospitality).
