  • Australian Apprenticeships (often referred to as apprenticeships or traineeships) are available to anyone of working age.

    You do not need a secondary school certificate or other qualification to be able to do an Australian Apprenticeship.

    You can do an Australian Apprenticeship if you are a school-leaver, re-entering the workforce or as an adult worker simply wishing to change careers.

    You can even begin your Australian Apprenticeship while you're still at school finishing Years 11 and 12.

    Australian Apprenticeships offer opportunities for you to train, study and earn an income at a variety of qualification levels in most occupations as well as in traditional trades.

    As an Australian Apprentice you can combine time at work with training, and can be either full-time, part-time or school-based.

    When you finish your Australian Apprenticeship, you will have a nationally recognised qualification that can take you anywhere in Australia and one that is held in high regard in many overseas countries as well."

    Our vision is for positive, safe and respectful relationships for couples, families, schools, workplaces and communities.

    How can we help?

    Being young can be tough. It’s a time of lots of change – both physical and emotional - when you’re growing up and trying to find your place in the world.

    When all these changes are happening, lots of other issues and tricky times can come up, such as trouble with your identity, challenging times at school, relationship and friendship difficulties, and mental health issues such as anxiety and depression.

    The good news is there are heaps of resources and organisations around to give you the knowledge you need, and put in you in touch with people to help you get through these difficult times.

    Relationships Australia Victoria (RAV) is one of these organisations.

    We work with children and young people to help them to overcome the challenges they may face. We do this through a diverse range of support services that are there to meet your needs. Our services are for everyone - regardless of religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, lifestyle choice, cultural background or economic circumstances.

    Counselling

    Our counsellors can help you and your family through difficult life events, such as separation and divorce, experiences of family violence, mental or emotional health difficulties or any relationship issue that is worrying you or making you stressed.

    We can work with you and your family in a supportive capacity to build informed solutions to the issues you are facing. This means that we talk to you about what you need, and help you to use your strengths to come up with ways to manage what you’re going through.

  • Creekside College - Caroline Springs
  • Creekside K-9 College was officially established on January 1st, 2012 following the disaggregation of Caroline Springs College. Creekside is in its seventh year and has grown very quickly to now accommodate over 1500 students.

    The principal class team comprises a Principal and three Assistant Principals. Besides the team of Leading Teachers, teaching staff are predominately in the Graduate or Accomplished experience range. To support this staffing profile, each year level group of staff, headed up by a Leading Teacher, is organised as a Professional Learning Community and operates as such.

    The college has an Early Years/ Middle Years structure. While the school accommodates some 1500 students, it operates on a split timetable of Early Years and Middle Years. The welfare benefits to students, particularly at break times are that students are only able to associate with relative peers. The students make use of the canteen, sporting fields, play equipment and other areas of the school with half the school still in classroom settings.

    All students are organised in home groups with all cohorts being clustered in defined learning spaces. Years 7 – 9 are organised into home groups that remain in the same room, with teachers moving between rooms. They will only be in different locations when involved in Science, Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Robotics, Food Technology and Physical Education. Year 9 students are offered an elective program in preparation for their year 10 experience.

    Student wellbeing is a priority of the college and is supported by two student counsellors, a secondary nurse, the school nurse, a Leading Teacher – Student Wellbeing, PSD Co-ordinator and Assistant Principal – Engagement and Wellbeing. A Multidisciplinary Wellbeing Team oversees student referrals based on behavioural issues, academic progress and PSD needs. Education Support Staff provide student support under the guidance of both the teachers and the PSD Co-ordinator.

    Buildings and grounds have been extensively developed to ensure that learning and recreational areas provide the best possible environments. A large number of portable classrooms have been required and have been further enhanced by cover ways and gardens. The spacious grounds include artificially grassed areas as well as courts and asphalted areas for games and recreation. The college has erected shade sails over passive play areas. A Wellbeing group involving parents, students and staff was established in 2010 to consider ongoing, sustainable environment improvements.

    The college is developing connections with the community with varied degrees of success. The Parents and Friends Association was reinstated at the end of the 2011 school year, however membership is still low. The Creekside K-9 College School Council has now met officially formed the following subcommittees: Education, Finance, Grounds and Maintenance.

  • Exford Primary School
  • Exford Primary School was opened on July 1, 1902 under the name of Exford Estate School and in 2002, our community celebrated the school’s centenary.

    Exford is a small and vital school, which has the unique attraction of being able to offer individual attention for all children, as well as being very well-resourced.  We offer all the advantages of a small, semi-rural school environment, whilst having the latest technology and staff who are committed to supporting our students to be their best.

    Exford is set in attractive gardens; our students are actively involved in planting and learning about sustaining our environment and we have a strong community commitment to caring for our grounds. 

    The school is located on Exford Road, six kilometres from Melton South within the Shire of Melton boundaries, on a 1.2-hectare site surrounded by farming land.  We are approximately 5 km from the new Eynesbury estate.  The majority of our students travel from the Melton area, with other families coming from Exford, Eynesbury and Strathtulloh.

    Our families articulate that Exford is a school of choice, and that they are committed to travelling the further distance to bring their students to our school.  When asked, our parent community identify the strong emphasis on courtesy, values, student resilience and personal and interpersonal learning fostered by our programs as being important reasons for selecting Exford for their children. 

    Parents seek the high quality educational program offered by the school as evidenced by the:

    • Personal and family oriented atmosphere
    • Personalised learning programs, supported by small class sizes for all year levels
    • Successful transition program with pre-schools  and Secondary colleges
    • Commitment of the students, staff and parents
    • Effective and friendly communication within the  school community
    • Individual caring and support for all students

    Parental participation and involvement engenders pride, warmth, a sense of belonging and a strong partnership between home and school.

    We have a current enrolment of 192 students (May  2012) and anticipate a projected growth of up to 20 % over the next 3 years.

    Exford Primary School is committed to sharing achievements and caring for each child’s development.  Each student’s progress is regularly communicated to parents through informal chats, information sessions, Parent-Student-Teacher Conferences, and written reports.  The school enjoys the strong support and respect of the parent and local Exford community, School Council and staff.

    Is the writing on the wall for Christianity?

    Recently I have noticed that there is an insidious attempt to remove all evidences of Christianity from the public domain.  This is taking place in two main areas firstly the Middle East – the birthplace of Christianity.  Here we are seeing ‘religious cleansing’ taking place on a massive scale.  Taking place in a manner that can only be described as barbaric. Taking place largely without any media attention to the religious nature of the conflicts.

    The second area under attack, are the western countries where Christianity has for centuries provided the soil from which democracy, free speech and liberty of conscience have flourished and developed to their greatest extent.  This attack is more subtle than the rather ham-fisted middle eastern events.  Often cloaked under the guise of being open-minded, liberal or simply trying to be fair these attacks against Christianity still run the very real risk of destabilising our communities.

    Springs Charter Schools in California recently removed a bundle of books from their libraries due to their Christian content – claiming that it violated the First Amendment.  This included the classic piece of literature known as The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom.  This book is an amazing account of life during the Second World War and it is a masterpiece of writing that beautifully contrasts the themes of brutality and forgiveness.

    When questioned various education personnel from the school system offered feeble explanations for this censorship referring to the books as ‘sectarian materials.’  This ensures that their students are now poorer by restricting their access to materials that have a message with positive values and provide hope in an age of hopelessness.

    When we simply try to fill the head and empty the heart we do a great disservice to our young people. California has tried this before. In the 1960s the latest fad was ‘value-free education.’  The link between that original experiment and young people engaging in at-risk behaviour is now more widely understood. Regrettably when the same philosophy is dressed up in different clothes some fail to recognise it.

    The importance of values and a spiritual basis in education is illustrated by the fact that the system of schools that supplied the students for that original ‘value-free’ environment eventually collapsed.  One of the veteran educators involved more recently reflected on the experiment and stated that he believed he and his colleagues owed the nation’s parents an apology.

    So will all traces of Christianity be removed from our western societies?  God has left his footprints in many, many places that the discerning person can still find. You can find evidence in the delicate design of the small flower. You can see incredible majesty in the galaxies above. You will find support in language and literature. You will see the changed lives of people who have recognised that when they acknowledge the Creator they have a mission and purpose.

    Oh and by the way, the expression “the writing’s on the wall” – it comes from the Bible in the book of Daniel Chapter 5.  The theme of that book is that there is Someone who ‘changes the times and the seasons; who can remove kings and raise up kings. Someone who can give wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who want understanding.’  When it all looks hopeless on this planet or in your life – there is Someone.

     

    It’s worth a thought.

It is no coincidence that our children are consistently achieving very good outcomes. Our talented and professional staff work hard to maintain these levels. Our recent Parent Opinion Survey results indicate the high regard our school community places on the curriculum provision and delivery offered at the school. The surveys also indicate that this is a very caring school with high emphasis placed on the welfare of the children in our care.

    Our school is committed to the development and implementation of a consistent pedagogy across the school so as to improve teaching and learning with our priorities being in Numeracy and Literacy. We have a high focus on the development of thinking skills which incorporate the many different styles in which children learn.

    Our school is extremely well resourced and our facilities are outstanding. Our new indoor swimming complex has been an excellent addition to our physical education program with our students now involved in numerous water activities including four weeks of intensive swimming instruction throughout the year.

    The importance of Primary schooling cannot be over-emphasized. It is the foundation upon which the educational future of a child is built. Therefore it is very important that you, as parents, take the opportunity to join in school activities and become involved in this exciting part of your children's lives.

    Thank you for the interest you take in our school. We look forward to meeting and working with you over the coming years.

Students are challenged and encouraged by highly qualified and committed teachers to achieve high academic results in both the core and co-curricula programs.

At the senior end, (Years 10 – 12) the school provides courses in the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL).

    If you feel you are in an unsafe relationship or environment, planning for you and your children’s safety is an important step to minimise future risk.

    Safe house accommodation

    When women and their children are at high risk of injury or death, our priority is to always get them to a safe place. This often means helping to move them to safe accommodation where they will be free from danger.

    Safe house accommodation is typically short term. During their stay, safe steps will continue to work through options with the woman to determine what her next steps might be in finding permanent safety solutions.

    Refuge accommodation

    Refuge is a longer-term option than safe house accommodation. It gives women the time and space to make decisions about their futures, including securing private rental accommodation, enrolling children in new schools and negotiating work leave arrangements. safe steps advocates on behalf of women to find them a refuge that will meet their needs.

    Outreach services

    Not all women want to leave their homes. Their children may be settled in the local school, or they may want to stay close to employment or their friends and family. safe steps work with women to help them find alternative solutions. We might talk to them at safe times in their own homes or in discreet places in the community. We can help women draw up safety plans, progress applications for Intervention Orders, assist with emergency financial payments, and provide emotional support.

    Our school currently has 450 students from 280 families.

    Our community is made up of families from a variety of cultures. The school's philosophy is that our learners are the centre of all that we do.

  • Staughton College
  • "Our motto Try Persevere Achieve forms the basis of the idea that each  student is provided with the opportunity at Staughton College to try,  develop and grow intellectually, physically and emotionally over their  time at the school.

    We encourage perseverance and see it as the pathway to achievement.

    Our year 7 – 12, coeducational, single-campus school provides a  friendly environment where boys and girls of all ages can learn to live  and work together.

    We value the sense of community among teachers and students alike.  Older students and student leaders provide valuable role models for the  younger and, in turn, they learn about the responsibilities of adulthood  and the skills necessary to contribute positively to the community and  the work place. All learn about socially responsible and respectful  behaviour, about courtesy, about the way we should treat each other and  about accepting responsibility for one's actions. Our Rights and  responsibilities are based on respect, learn and safety.

    The College provides structures to support a transition from Primary  school including core rooms and core teachers. Our experience is that it  doesn't take long before students feel confident and comfortable at  school. This is a very important first step.

    We also have high expectations of our students' learning. Around  those high expectations, we build structure, teaching practice,  organisation and procedures. We expect students to take on the challenge  of continuously improving upon their learning and participating in the  broad range of programs and extra-curricular activities on offer. This  is supported by continuous evaluation and improvement of subjects,  courses of study, and the way in which teaching and learning occurs. The  academic achievements of our students are exemplified by their VCE  results, VCAL completion and the tertiary, further education and  training pathways they take up after graduation.

    We expect and value parent support for school programs and policies in helping to maintain a working, productive environment.

    The potential, creativity and spirit of our young people continue to  be an inspiration and a source of confidence in the future. Their  commitment to achieving high academic results while being fine citizens  of the school community, the support of families and the talents and  dedication of our staff make Staughton College a great place to come to  every day."
