Film Bios: ‘M’ rated Movies

Starting in 2015, we will be showing some M-rated films to students. For this we require a new M-Rated Film consent form to be filled out by all parents and for them to read a short bio of each film which has been included below.

All chosen movies have been reviewed by teaching staff and deemed appropriate for use in our program. We will provide adult supervision while screening movies and review movies with students if/as necessary. By law, adult supervision is recommended while screening M-rated movies for any person less than 15 years of age.

  • Into the Wild
  • Freedom Writers
  • White Squall
  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
  • Go Back to Where you Came From
  • Good Will Hunting
  • Castaway
  • Seven Pounds
  • Coach Carter

Whittlesea Secondary College - Week in review

Whittlesea Secondary College - Week in Review

  • This week 2A (Whittlesea and Tyrrell) participated in first aid session 4 which focused on spinal and brain injuries. We all found this hands on activity very entertaining and fun as well as educational.
  • Whittlesea all agree that one of the biggest highlights of the whole term was the surfing and biking. We all managed to stand up on the surfboard and we are looking forward to the next session on it.
  • The Whittlesea Students are very much looking forward to our second Expo. The next 38 km hike will challenge us more than the previous 12 km one.

Our favourite quote is:
"it is better to light one small candle than to curse the darkness"
Caroline Jones

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Early Childhood Development initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are three campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place". It opened for students in term 1 2009.
