Message from the Principal


Welcome. Our vision and mission for the College is in creating a positive, safe, welcoming and supportive environment for learning.

As a leading comprehensive Year 7 to 12 school in the Latrobe Valley, we offer a broad and rich academic program that extends into University-based Higher Studies subjects that are founded on high standards and expectations for all learners.

Alongside this, our strong community connections enable our students to work with and alongside a diversity of community partners in our Broadening Horizons, Connected Learning in Community (CLiC) and our large VCAL and VET programs. These offerings allow each student access to multiple career pathways through their school journey.

We have developed a holistic approach to enable each student to thrive and grow in developing the enduring skills, knowledge and understandings to be successful in a modern society that requires resilience, flexibility, team work, creativity, collaborative and critical thinking.

Hence, our instructional model is centred on building each student’s capacity to become a highly independent learner through classroom-based and complementary real-life practical experiences.

We provide local, urban, interstate and international learning experiences via our broad range of leadership, academic and cultural excursions, camps, real-world challenge and Sister school programs.

We thank you for considering Traralgon College as your first choice for your child’s education.

Warm Regards

John Freyne
