Welcome to Point Cook Senior Secondary College


On behalf of all the staff at Point Cook Senior Secondary College, I would like to extend a warm welcome to students, parents and community members. At PCSSC, we are not just an educational institution, but a vibrant and diverse community that takes pride in nurturing the minds of our young adults.


Through our commitment to excellence we are dedicated to achieving high quality student outcomes. We aim to create an environment that encourages curiosity, critical thinking, and a passion for lifelong learning. We provide opportunities to participate and excel in academics, arts, sports or other endeavours, in order to support every student's journey towards success.


Diversity is a big aspect our school’s identity and it is one of our greatest strengths. The school community is an exciting mix of cultures, backgrounds and perspectives. This diversity enriches the experiences of our students and prepares them for the globalized world they will soon be a part of.

At PCSSC, we understand that each student has their own path to follow. That's why we are dedicated to providing a wide range of pathways that cater to individual strengths and interests. As a Senior Secondary environment, we work tirelessly with students to plan their future pathways. From academic programs in the VCE to vocational courses in VET, we ensure that every student has the opportunity to thrive and work towards their future aspirations.


We recognise that academic success is just one part of the picture for successful student outcomes. We believe that a balanced education includes a strong focus on student wellbeing. A happy, healthy student is better equipped to excel academically and make positive contributions to the community. Our teaching and learning environment, counselling services and varied wellbeing initiatives are designed to ensure that each student feels supported, safe and confident in facing life's challenges.


As the Principal of Point Cook Senior Secondary College, I strive to create an environment where all students can fill their potential, where diversity is celebrated and where student wellbeing is paramount. I invite you all to join us in this exciting journey of growth, learning, and personal development.

School Captains' Message

School Captains - 2024.JPG

We would like to extend a warm welcome to all the returning students and staff as well as those who are beginning their journey here at Point Cook Senior Secondary College! After witnessing the growth and resilience of the school through a number of challenging years, we are not only excited but also beyond proud to represent Point Cook Senior as the School Captains for 2024.

After a year of rebuilding connections and community in 2023, we aspire to further strengthen the school community by implementing our school values: Respect, Effort and Responsibility. The strong relationships and connections that we have built with our peers and teachers will allow us to continue strengthening our school spirit and allow for even more possibilities in the future!

A core aspect of Point Cook Senior is the inclusion of student voice in each and every aspect of the school, and our 2024 SRC portrays that. Each student is passionate, dedicated and determined in their individual roles and commits themselves to working collaboratively amongst other leaders to be the change they want to see. We are proud to know that it is not our title or badge that makes us leaders, but instead the progressive actions and changes that we bring to our school.

As we embark on our final year, we look forward to opening up the possibilities for all our peers, as well as reflecting on those that were open to us throughout our time here. We are grateful to have received such a position and hope to be an inspiring example to others like those who have been and continue to be for us.
Point Cook Senior is not just a school, but it’s also a place where students and teachers can come to grow as individuals, just as we have. We are proud to acknowledge how Point Cook Senior has shaped our identity as people, getting us ready to make a difference in the world.

We cannot wait to see what 2024 brings for the Point Cook Senior Secondary College community!

PTCSC Student Behaviour Matrix A0.jpg

What is School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS)?

The aim of School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) at Point Cook Senior Secondary College is to create a positive school climate, a culture of student determination and an open, responsive management system for all school community members.


SWPBS provides a clear framework of expected behaviours that the school community sees as essential to creating an environment that fosters social and academic excellence.


What behaviours does PCSSC value?

All members of the school community exemplify the behaviours that PCSSC values.  At our school, we value

  • Respect

  • Effort

  • Responsibility


Our Behaviour Expectation Matrix explicitly sets out what these values look like in various areas of the school community.  Demonstrations of these behaviours are recognised, reinforced and rewarded.

The Behaviour Expectation Matrix

PCSSC’s Behaviour Expectation Matrix provides a clear framework of positive behaviours that our school community has identified as being essential to enhancing individual growth, social interactions and academic achievement.

Our expected behaviours will be explicitly taught in class, are regularly positively recognized and will be displayed around the school in early 2017. Please see Behaviour Expectation Matirx here.


Explicitly Teaching Our Expected Behaviours

Teaching, modelling and reinforcing positive social and academic behaviours is essential to creating a harmonious learning environment that bolsters student success.


When Do We Teach Our Expected Behaviours?

At the beginning of the school year

In our daily conversations with members of the school community

As an embedded part of classroom learning

At teachable moments
