Gleneagles Secondary College has clear expectations about student behaviour, attitude and uniform. Students will be supported to make sound choices, show respect and accept responsibility for their actions. Students who do not live up to the school expectations will face consequences which may include lunchtime detentions, after-school detentions, internal and external suspensions. The student management team are charged with supporting students and ensuring the maintenance of a high standard of behaviour.
Home Group Teachers & Mentors 2017
All students in Year 7 – 10 will be in a home group and the home group teacher will meet with the class every morning and will usually teach the class. The home group teacher supports the students in the class in both a welfare and discipline role. The home group teacher is the first point of contact between the school and the home.

All VCE students will be assigned to a mentor’s group. Each mentor will support between 8 & 12 students and will meet with the group each week. The mentor will support the students with their academic program, study habits, wellbeing and liaise regularly with their teachers. Regular written reports will be prepared by the VCE teachers and mentors, usually twice per term. The mentor will be a key contact between the school and home.

The home group teachers and mentors are supported by Team Leaders at each Year level and three Sub-school Leaders who work closely with student well being and directly with students and their families as appropriate.

The Student Voice Committee allows groups of students to work towards positive changes while representing the entire student body. Being involved in this program was an exciting way for me to begin my year and has presented me with a variety of learning experiences. The Student Voice selection process enables applicants to gain confidence whilst completing an interview. My participation has benefited my group work and public speaking. I now have the chance to gather feedback from other students and bring forth their opinions to the Student Voice Committee. As a member, I also had the opportunity to become a junior school captain. After putting the speech writing skills I learned in the committee to the test, I was fortunate enough to be elected. I’m proud to be a leader of the junior school and especially pleased to be gaining valuable life skills. Being a leader has made my time at Gleneagles challenging, interesting and rewarding.
