Operation NewStart

Operation Newstart has grown from the ground up. Newstart was developed by teachers and police who came in contact with students disengaged from education on a daily basis. They recognised together we all do better.

Operation Newstart is a partnership between the Department of Education & Early Childhood Development (DEECD) and Victoria Police. Newstart is passionately supported by community organizations, health professionals, other emergency services, further education providers, local businesses and industry, parents and sponsors who see Operation Newstart works!!!!

Would you please pass on our gratitude to the Principal, teachers and support staff at Weeroona College. Thanks to their efforts, Mary has transitioned well into high school and has enjoyed the extra-curricular activities, such as basketball and Concert band. She has also achieved well academically and enjoyed her first year at your college.

Happy Parents

The Learning Community structures are an excellent model.

My child’s advisor cares about him holistically and this is important to me.

Overall, we are very happy with Weeroona College Bendigo. The teachers are always approachable and very informative.

We have found the energy and enthusiasm from the office staff, teachers, and principal outstanding. Keep up the magical work and we look forward to the coming years.
