Weeroona College Bendigo is a co-educational secondary college, catering for students in years 7 to 10, located in White Hills, a suburb of Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.

The college was formed in 1999 with the merger of White Hills Secondary College and Bendigo East Primary School.[1]

This year[when?] the college has an enrolment of over 800 students, supported by over 100 staff. Year 10 students have the opportunity to specialize in specific areas of interest. Senior students also have the opportunity to undertake some units of their Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) at the college. Most of the students who choose to go on to achieve the VCE do so at the nearby Bendigo Senior Secondary College.

Weeroona College Bendigo began to be rebuilt during 2008 and was completed prior to the start of 2013. The new school was officially reopened on Sunday 13, October 2013 by Damian Drum.[2]
