From the Principal

Welcome to Term Four, the final term of this academic year. Term Four is always a very busy one with many curriculum and extra-curricular activities on our calendar. 


Our Year 12 final celebration day was on October 17. It was celebrated with a special morning tea for all Year 12 students and staff and a school assembly, where the whole school community was provided with the opportunity to farewell Year 12 students.  I must admit that I am very proud of this Year 12 cohort, as these students have absolutely upheld our school values and celebrated their final official day at school in an outstanding manner. I am sure that they will be successful with any future pathways they undertake. 


On Friday October 20, we held our famous Multicultural Day Celebration. It was bigger and more impressive than any other year; an absolute success. The theme this year was “Fusion” which represents the fabric of our school community fused together and reflects the Australian multicultural society. The school opened its gate to the wider community to celebrate our diversity. The opening ceremony was outstanding with many dignitaries in attendance. It began with a Welcome to Country and didgeridoo performance and included the Haka, and the most colourful multicultural parade with our students dressed in their ethnic background costumes. Our school choir again sang the original song written and composed by Ms Glenda Mcgrath - Festival Co-Organiser, and teacher at the College. Our guest speaker Krushandevsinh (Kano) Ravalji, Founder, Third Culture Australia, Youth Commissioner, Victorian Multicultural Commission, articulated the meaning of multiculturalism in the Australian society through his own personal experiences in a great way.


Thank you to all invited guests, members of our school community and general public who came along to celebrate and enjoy the day. 

The VCAA exams began on October 24 and will conclude on November 10. Wishing all Year 12 students undertaking their final exams Good Luck.


The Year 12 graduation evening is on November 21 at GMHBA Stadium, President’s Room. I am looking forward to celebrating our Year 12 students’ achievements with their parents, guardians, friends, and the wider school community. 


Semester 2 exams for our Year 11 students, will begin on October 30, followed by the Year 12 commencement program. All other Year levels will complete their exams as the term progresses. More information about the exams timetables will be provided by the Sub-School Leaders and Year level Coordinators. 


Our Awards Presentation evening will be on Tuesday, December 12. 


Wishing you all a very productive term.

2024 School Captains/Leaders

 It is with great pleasure that I present the 2024 School Captains to our school community. These dedicated individuals will lead North Geelong Secondary College to new heights in the coming year. Each of these students has demonstrated remarkable commitment to our school community and embodies the spirit of leadership, service, and the school values.

Congratulations to: Nivetha Ranjithkumar - School Captain, Paris Mina - School Captain, Annalise Speed - Academic Captain, Aiden Veale Arts Captain, Seth McCleish – Sports Captain and Nya Tut - Community/Cultural Captain. Welcome to the NGSC Leadership Team!


Nivetha Ranjithkumar and Paris Mina will serve as our School Captains, guiding and inspiring their fellow students. Their dedication and passion for our school are truly admirable.


Annalise Speed will take on the role of Academic Captain, encouraging academic excellence among our student body. Her commitment to learning is truly inspiring.


Aiden Veale, our Arts Captain, will bring creativity and innovation to our school's arts programs, fostering a thriving artistic community.


Seth McCleish, as Sports Captain, will encourage sportsmanship, teamwork, and physical fitness among our students.


Nya Tut will lead as our Community/Cultural Captain, promoting community engagement and cultural diversity within our school.

There will be a special whole school assembly in early November to introduce the school captains to the whole school community. 


Also, there will be a special morning tea with the Principal to welcome our new leaders to the NGSC Leadership Team. During the morning tea the school captains will have the opportunity to discuss and present their views and their plans for next year. This is one of the moments that, as Principal of this proud community, I look forward to hearing and discussing fresh views and ideas about schooling. 


School captains and other students in leadership positions play a vital role in the operations and life of the College. They act as role models for the student body and provide leadership across a wide range of activities within the school community, including sports, the creative arts, culture, technology, and general life of our school life.


To be selected as a student leader at NGSC, students must have demonstrated a commitment to the values of the school, have a record of involvement in all aspects of the school life and have shown a willingness to serve the needs of others.  Although not all Year 12 students are School Captains, all are leaders. 


Once again, congratulations to our 2024 School Leaders! My Principal Team and I are looking forward to working with them to continue carving a successful path for our school, achieving great outcomes for all.
