Carrum Downs Secondary College is a Year 7-12 co-educational college of approximately 1000 people, including students, teachers, support staff and school council parents. We believe in fostering quality relationships so as to provide quality learning opportunities that can lead to quality destinations. We aim to empower young people to achieve their personal best and develop as responsible and creative members of the Carrum Downs community. Our core business is to educate our young people. We expect our teachers to provide real-life learning opportunities for our students with emphasis placed on teaching young people the value of life-long learning.
As part of our commitment to real-life learning, the college has a student run café and restaurant. All food produced in Café Salubrious is prepared by students studying Vocational Education and Training (VET) Hospitality and VCAL Café Operations. Students are also responsible for stock ordering, front of house service and budgeting. The café has been extremely successful not only in terms of student learning, but is also very busy with staff and student customers.
The college has identified the need to commercialise our senior school programs as a way to broaden the scope of learning opportunities for our students, embed strong transition processes to ensure our students reach positive destinations, and strengthen community partnerships. It is the college’s aim to provide a cafe where members of the local community can meet and enjoy quality food and beverages in a safe, friendly and modern café environment. We also want our students to have authentic learning opportunities by preparing food and beverages for a wider customer base. We are expanding our café and locating it at the front of the college to allow for street access via McCormick’s Road.
Our local youth will benefit most through having authentic learning opportunities and being prepared for the workforce. The college is very committed to providing our students with employability skills.
