Teaching and Learning is the means by which we deliver our curriculum, which is designed to ensure that we meet our goal of Academic Excellence in all areas of learning. We place a particular focus on student achieving the foundational skills of literacy and numeracy and we foster passion for learning particularly in the areas of our three specialisms Science, the Arts and Sport.
Teachers use a wide range of strategies to make learning both stimulating and challenging. Students remain at the centre of learning because teachers focus on what students need to know and be able to do to move on to the next level of achievement in each of their subject areas.
Melton LEARN Model
At MSC we recognise that students learn more effectively when they are informed about the goals of each lesson and each lesson has a consistent structure. All teachers are expected to plan their lessons using the agreed Melton LEARN Model.
|E||Engage and Explore new knowledge|
|A||Apply the new knowledge|
|R||Review the learning-was the Learning Intention achieved?|
|N||Navigate to the next lesson|

Melton Secondary College is divided into three Sub Schools.
The Sub Schools are the main form of communication and administration for students and their families. Student Engagement and Wellbeing, including Positive Behaviour Management and Education, Attendance and Student progress are administered by the Sub Schools. Transition and Pathways are integral to the Sub Schools and are supported by our Pathways Coordinator, and Student Leadership is supported by our Student Voice Coordinator.
