Message from the Principal

At Yarra Valley Grammar we want teachers who are experts in their field. This includes having a passion for the subjects they are teaching because this passion will be passed on to their students. The second element to look for is the teacher who genuinely loves to work with young people. It is the teacher who can establish a great working relationship with students and colleagues who is the greatest asset to any school. They are the ones who encourage the reluctant, celebrate success, include everyone in the room and inject some humour into their work. Students come to their classes because they want to learn and because the teacher is truly interested in their wellbeing and their learning. My role as principal is to help create an environment where the best teachers want to come to teach; where they can continue to develop their skills and where they in turn instil in their students the confidence to achieve.

- Dr Mark Merry (Principal).

About Yarra Valley Grammar

Established in the heart of Melbourne’s east in 1966 and set on a spacious 29-hectare campus, Yarra Valley Grammar overlooks the Yarra Valley and picturesque Dandenong Ranges. Our students excel under the guidance of great teachers who love what they do and seek to inspire them to strive for excellence. The school offers an extensive range of contemporary opportunities and sets high standards of performance, encouraging all students to achieve their personal best.

Great teachers are able to communicate complex concepts in simple ways. They can vary the way they teach to suit the way each student learns. This takes patience, flexibility and the ability to see things from the students’ perspective. Yarra Valley Grammar’s team of teachers have a genuine interest in getting to know their students, so they can teach them effectively, encourage them to achieve their best, identify issues or problems and care for their welfare. Our teachers are also role models for our students, promoting the school’s core values such as respect and treating others as they wish to be treated.

Curriculum

Yarra Valley Grammar’s broad curriculum is responsive to individual student needs, with extra opportunities for enrichment and support. Key learning areas include art and design, business studies, design technology, English, humanities, ICT, languages, mathematics, physical education and sport, outdoor education and science. Students study a common curriculum until the midsecondary years. Beyond this, many electives are available from which students may choose. Yarra Valley Grammar offers a Certificate IV in Design combined with the VCE over two years, as well as VET subjects as part of the VCE program. The school also enjoys exchange programs with schools in France, Japan and China.

There is also an extensive inter-house and inter-school sports program.

Pastoral care

The Head of Student Welfare, along with the School Chaplain, oversees the pastoral care program. Students are encouraged to accept responsibility and leadership opportunities so they are well prepared to contribute to society in a meaningful way in life after school.
