Traralgon College is a multi-campus school with a student population of approximately 960 students based on either the East Campus for students in years 7 to 9 and the West Campus for students in years 10 – 12. The junior campus consists of three sub-schools, one at each year level and the senior campus has a similar structure with three teams dedicated to students in Year 10, VCAL and VCE.
We aim to track our students closely and to provide a supportive environment that enables students to develop their learning strengths with confidence and to seek support when necessary from the wellbeing teams that support each cohort. We are a Positive Behaviour Support school and our values of Respect, Resilience and Responsibility are woven into our Student and Staff Expected Behaviour Matrixes and our Progress Report Assessment Rubric.
Our motto is “Growing together as adaptable, confident, successful learners and citizens”. Teachers work in professional learning teams developing their skills and knowledge in teaching, ensuring their learning leads to improved learning outcomes for all students.
We aim to develop global citizens who have the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful in the future. Connecting students to the broader community is valued at Traralgon College, the Broadening Horizons Program at year 9 and the CreatIF… Program at year 10 and the VCAL program at years 11 and 12 are all examples of programs that connect our students to the community and assist them in learning about future employment pathways.
Traralgon College Junior Campus is a vibrant and stimulating learning environment for students in Year 7 to Year 9. Our teachers are passionate and committed professionals, dedicated to delivering engaging, meaningful and relevant learning opportunities for all students. Students at our school benefit from a curriculum focussed on learning the essential knowledge, skills and dispositions required to be successful in the 21st Century.
Our school has a relentless commitment to individual learning growth and the provision of differentiated education programs that meet the needs of all students. We offer an accelerated learning program for gifted students and run a number of specialist programs that cater for those whose needs are not met in a traditional curriculum. We actively create a positive environment through multiple welfare programs and supports, and we reinforce school values through a school wide focus on expected behaviours. We enjoy strong support from our community and we welcome all new families and students to our exciting school.

This year our college will once again participate in ‘Wakakirri’ – Australia’s largest performing arts experience for schools. The main philosophy of Wakakirri is that students work collaboratively with peers, Teachers and adult helpers to create a ‘Story’ through dance, acting and music.
Whilst the final production sees the students perform in professional settings such as The Plenary and The Victorian Arts Centre, it is the process of students actually creating the performance themselves that ultimately develops students’ educational outcomes, lifestyle choices and overall connectedness to the College.
Traralgon College has a long and very proud history of participating in Wakakirri and its sister event, the former Rock Eisteddfod Challenge. Competing in our first Rock Eisteddfod performance back in 1991, the College has maintained its commitment to providing students with a Performing Arts avenue in which to express themselves creatively whilst building on leadership, teamwork and problem solving skills.
All rehearsals are after school on a Thursday from 3.30 -5.00. Our performance is presented to our local audiences in late July and then the production is performed as part of the Wakakrri State Heats where we compete against other Victorian Secondary Schools for ‘Story of the Year’.
Participating students can elect to be either a performer or a backstage member who helps with sets, staging, costume creation and or makeup.
Production activities also include:
*choreography assistants * fundraising * concept design *soundtrack editing
* set design and painting * hair/makeup * backstage and lighting
* costume design and creation
