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 Student Management Team 2017
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.

Book Club has given me a great chance to express my thoughts and opinions of the books I read. It has given me a great opportunity to read more, learn about new books and provided me with a wider range of books to read. In Book Club we go on excursions, such as going to the city to meet authors, which also gives us a chance to buy new books. A current event in Book Club is the ‘Reader’s Cup’ which is where we compete against other teams at a quiz night, answering questions about certain books we have read. Then we present our findings of the books in any creative way we like. An upcoming event will be a visit to the cinemas to watch a film related to a book the majority of us have read. This club has really helped me with my reading and choices of books to read. I am having a great time in Book Club and enjoy attending our weekly meetings.
