Norwood Secondary College is a secondary college in the Eastern suburbs, situated in North Ringwood, Victoria, Australia and right next to Mullum Primary School. The year of 2008 was Norwood's 50th anniversary.

Norwood profile

Norwood Secondary College, in the City of Maroondah is a single campus coeducational Years 7-12 College with an enrolment of 1140 students. It has an outstanding reputation in the community, particularly with regard to student endeavour in academic results, sport and music. The College cannot regularly accommodate all applications for Year 7, having had a Site Ceiling of 1100 placed on the College in 2003. The College caters for the educational needs of students from a wide range of primary schools in the local community and values the positive relationship that is established with these schools. The College is placed in ‘Like School Group 2’ with low EMA/Youth Allowance and Languages Other Than English (LOTE).

The key element of the College emblem is the compass needle pointing north. Together with our Latin motto ‘fidelis’ meaning faithful and loyal, it evokes and inspires values of purpose, direction, reliability and achievement. Through a journey of discovery, exploration and personal growth teachers facilitate and guide students into deeper understandings of their world. The College is supported by an interested and pro-active College Council with sub-committees of Finance, Education, Facilities, Youth Worker Support and Uniform all meeting regularly and providing input into College policies and operation. At Norwood we believe that the wearing of uniform promotes a sense of identity and pride of belonging, a sense of equality between students, a commitment to high standards of achievement and performance and has a significant security purpose. It is expected that all students will abide by the Council Uniform Policy.

Carnival

  • In 2008 Norwood Secondary College held a carnival to celebrate 50 years, however this was a poor performance from an attendance point of view. Very few people turned up, perhaps due to poor weather.. and poor advertising!
  • Norwood has scheduled another carnival to take place in 2009, which will be held on the 21st of November. This is to raise funds for the College youth worker. It is unknown whether the carnival will become an annual event, or whether this is to make up for the poor performance of the 2008 carnival.

Future development

As part of the Maroondah Education Coalition, current plans are for the current Norwood site to be closed and sold off and for a new school to be built combining Norwood Secondary College and Parkwood Secondary College, on the Parkwood Site, which has much larger grounds. The new school would be called "MEC Norwood", however this is still in the planning phase and awaiting community approval.

Mec norwood is a really crappy name and parkwood and norwood don't even like each other. You should think of a better name and not mec norwood
