The College also offers an Orientation Camp, and a Year 7 Student Management Team with a strong Pastoral Care Program to ensure Year 7 students quickly form new friendships and develop positive relationships with staff.

GREENSBOROUGH COLLEGE VALUES

Greensborough College is a community of Courageous, Aspirational and Respectful learners. We promote Equality and see the potential for excellence in every student. 

YEAR 7 CAMP

Each year our Year 7 students attend a camp exclusively. The Home Group teacher, along with other teachers, take advantage of this camp to get to know the students. The camp also allows the students to get to know each other early in the school year. In addition to this, our Year 9 House Leaders also attend the camp to help run activities and build positive relationships with our new students. 

 

In recent years the camp has been held at Iluka Retreat in Shoreham on the Mornington Peninsular. Some of the activities included canoeing, tree climbing, exploring the Ashcombe Maze, completing the obstacle course and more. 

 

 

 

 

SWIMMING & ATHLETICS CARNIVAL 

These sport days are a whole school event and we encourage all students to attend. If studens are not in many events they can participate by supporting their House and team members as well as getting involved in the carnival atmosphere. A fantastic occasion for all.
