About Lilydale Heights College

by Shane Kruger, Principal

Lilydale Heights College is a fully inclusive learning community which enables students to become successful lifelong learners and confident global citizens.

This core purpose is underpinned by three core values:​

  • Excellence: Challenging yourself to achieve your best
  • Respect: Respecting yourself, others and our environment
  • Responsibility: Being accountable for all your actions

At Lilydale Heights College we aim to give every student in our care the very best possible education in order to prepare them for life beyond school. We are purposefully striving to keep pace with our exciting world by connecting students and learning programs that are rich and varied. At Lilydale Heights we teach more than subjects. We understand the need to prepare our students to meet an ever changing future. We educate for life and work to inspire lifelong learning.

Lilydale Heights College builds on its culture, diversity and values, developing the qualities, talents and strengths of each young person; it engages with the needs and interests of society and with the challenges of higher education and the workplace.

Our educational program is wide and varied and our record of success is outstanding. Students find they can pursue their interests and strengths to the best of their ability, and are encouraged to achieve their personal best. We are proud of our record and of our success in helping students achieve their dreams once they leave school.

Lilydale Heights College has a strong and supportive College Council that ensures that the school continues to excel in everything we do. In addition, we have a structured leadership profile where every child has a Learning Leader, Student Liaison Coordinator and SELF teacher to help support their learning. Students are also supported in their learning through the work of our Student Welfare and Careers Coordination Teams. This structure allows Lilydale Heights College to support every individual student and assist them in their journey throughout their secondary schooling life and beyond.

Beyond the classroom students are encouraged to involve themselves in the broad co-curricular program. Learning here takes place in many shapes and forms. Students have the opportunity to participate fully on the sporting field, in music ensembles, on the stage, in student leadership activities, Vocational Education and Training courses, in the Technology, Hospitality and Foods areas, to travel to our sister schools in Japan and China as well as attend local camps around Victoria and Australia. Our Deb Ball, Year 10 Formal and Year 12 Social complete the social calendar, providing positive social interactions and important moments on the journey to adulthood.

I warmly welcome you to visit our College by contacting us, and discover firsthand what makes a Lilydale Heights College education so distinctive.
