Students are provided with support, information and counselling resources to assist with their career/educational decision making. Careers counselling is available to all students. However, those who are terminating formal schooling in Year 9 and 10 are strongly encouraged to seek assistance. A number of in-school activities including guest speakers such as "tradeswomen on the move", give specific insights into major career areas. College visits, interviews, and the Careers' Market are encouraged to enhance student awareness. A great deal of emphasis is also placed on college and other choices in first semester (for Year 10's) to assist students to make appropriate choices for their transition from high school in the following year.
Steeped in history, ALFRED DEAKIN HIGH SCHOOL is one of the popular school in the Deakin area. Our aim is clear and present in all aspects of the school. Respect, Compassion and Resilience are some of the qualities demonstrated towards the personal attributes we strive to gain and display in our community.
We endeavour to celebrate each other’s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability. We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
