The biggest challenge for schools today is the same as in the past – how to best prepare young people for the future.
Today that future is arguably less certain than in the past. Young people will be required to solve problems we don’t yet know about, take on careers in fields that are not yet imagined, and face emerging issues concerning the environment, the use of technology, and the processes of
Hoax phone calls to Victorian schools
I am writing to reassure you in light of the recent hoax threatening phone calls to Victorian schools in the last few days.
Our school has not received such a call but I wanted to inform you that, like all schools, we have an emergency management plan in place for situations like this, and we practise it throughout the year.
Those schools which did receive a threatening call enacted their emergency management plans and they worked well.
The safety and wellbeing of our students is always our top priority.
If you have any questions please contact me.

100% 2016 Tertiary Offers
100% of our Year 12 students (VCE and VCAL) applying for tertiary places received an offer in the first round. 26% of applicants received offers in the Creative Arts area of study, which includes: Animation and Interactive Media, Audio Production, Creative Industries, Fashion Design, Film and Television, Fine Arts, and Product Design.
Congratulations to our Year 12s
It was a day of delight for most of our students as they received their ATAR scores. Overall our students performed better than the previous year, with 11% receiving an ATAR in the 90s. The vast majority of our students received an ATAR in the top half of the band, with 70% of our students receiving an ATAR of 50 or above.
Congratulations to Lucas G, who generated an ATAR of 97.3, making him our Dux for 2015. Lucas’ achievement is all the more impressive, given that his VCE program was made up of predominantly humanities subjects, which are subject to being marked down through the scaling process.
We wish all our Year 12 students the very best as they now make changes to their tertiary preferences and await their offers in January.

Learn about our teams
A team structure forms the basis of the Fitzroy High School model.
Groups of students and teachers are allocated teams, allowing all members of the team to get to know each other well. Students stay in the same team for Years 7 and 8 before moving into new teams in Years 9 through to Year 12.
