Wedderburn College is a F-12 school of around 180 students located in the Shire of Loddon in the North Central district of Victoria, approximately 75 kilometres north of Bendigo. Wedderburn is approximately 217 kilometres from Melbourne. The town has a population of about 800 people of whom approximately 200 live on town boundary farms. Students are drawn from the small communities of Korong Vale, Borung and Inglewood. Central to the strategic direction of Wedderburn College is the development and wellbeing of every student academically, socially and emotionally. Our staff believe that positive relationships are the foundation of strong learning experiences in every classroom, with every student.
Our College has a whole school focus on improving the literacy and numeracy of students and on developing a curriculum that is relevant for students in the 21st century. The College vision: ‘Developing positive learners for a world community’, reflects our desire for all students to access opportunities that will allow them to realise positive and productive futures for themselves. The values that underpin the Colleges beliefs are Responsibility, Respect, and Resilience. The College occupies a significant and valuable place within the wider Wedderburn community and this relationship is a source of pride for both.
The college works cooperatively with our neighboring schools to access a wide range of learning opportunities. A sense of belonging and connection to the College is fostered by our homeroom program where students have access to daily care and support.
