Location Profile

Lakes Entrance Secondary College is the sole secondary school provider in Lakes Entrance.  As such, it occupies a prominent and significant role in the town and is a focus of community and educational connections. The College has 300 students drawn from the Primary schools of Swan Reach, Nungurner, Lakes Entrance, Toorloo Arm and Metung. The College serves the needs of a diverse population, where the economy of the town is based upon the fishing industry, and a variety of services and trades, agriculture, fishing and tourism. The location is a superb combination of ocean and forest, with a mild and temperate climate year round, abundant opportunities for exploring, hiking, trail riding, surfing, walking and with proximity to the ski fields. Restaurants and cafes abound and the area is growing in recognition for its infrastructure development, reasonably priced housing and growth potential. Roads in and out are excellent and the atmosphere is welcoming and inclusive. The College is proud to reap the benefits of all of these desirable factors. Working at Lakes Entrance Secondary College brings with it abundant life style and professional potential.

The aim of the College is to prepare students for life as active, happy, curious and engaged citizens. Teachers work to provide an understanding of opportunity and possibility, where diverse skills are valued and aspirations are carefully nurtured. Our College values are ‘Respect for Self, Respect for Others and Respect for Learning.’ The College curriculum is designed to develop the academic, social and personal skills of each student. There is a strong focus on respectful relationships, historical and geographical understanding and reaching full potential. There is a strong wellbeing perspective, programs to support good decision making and impactful career advice. Our links to all aspects of the Lakes community run deep and enable a well- structured pathway for the aspirations of all of our students.

The Years 7 to 9 curriculum at the College develops a common set of knowledge and skills and has been designed to meet the diverse educational needs of all of our students and to provide them with stimulating and valuable learning experiences both within the classroom and through extra-curricular activities. We aim to offer a stimulating Camp program at each year level, a robust Sports program and celebrate many outstanding achievements of our students, both academic and personal.  The curriculum has been mapped against the skills and knowledge each student will need as they move into the later years of schooling and ultimately further education and employment. There are programs to support all abilities and, the virtue of a relatively small school means that we know our students well and can facilitate the strongest possible outcomes for them and their families.  Year 9 students experience an off-campus curriculum at our local fishing precinct, Bullock Island, where they engage closely with the community, learn about themselves and the world of work and future possibilities.

The College is led by a Principal, Assistant Principal, 2 Learning Specialists and 2 Leading Teachers with a staff of 38 teachers and 12 Educational Support Staff. The focus on student well-being, safety and resilience resides with a team of coordinators led by a leading teacher and supported by a Student Wellbeing team including a School Nurse, Chaplain and Psychologist.

The College’s teaching and learning focus is guided by current research and evidence based pedagogy, which involves a diagnosis of learning needs, and effective interventions to enable consistent growth for each student. All teaching staff learn together, and apply themselves to ongoing professional learning. 

The College is a strong nexus between our community, the students and parents and the wider world of opportunity and further education. Strong teaching and learning underpins all of our endeavours and the drive towards continual improvement lends a dynamism to the workplace.
