We Grow Through Connection
At Pakenham Secondary College we are supportive and positive in our approach with the growth of every individual student our absolute focus.
SOAR is a set of ideals that the College lives by, helping to shape socially responsible citizens and build pathways to their future.
At Pakenham Secondary College, our students are at the centre of all that we do. We aim to develop the whole student and create pathways for their future. The College’s values hinge upon the acronym SOAR, which in turn has inspired the eagle in the school’s logo.

"We would like to commend Pakenham Secondary on what has been a more than successful transition year with our daughter.
On the back of two years of remote learning in lockdowns, our daughter transitioned into Year 7. Like any parents we had our concerns and expectations.
These concerns were very quickly put to rest as we saw the great connections develop with Teachers, Leadership Teams and fellow students.
Our daughter has gone from strength to strength this year, her improvement in Mathematics has been exceptional and her social confidence has blossomed. The opportunities that have been afforded to her through the Enhancement Program has been wonderful and we are pleased she will continue in this program in Year 8.
The school's academia goals and social connectedness is very apparent in their actions, communications and ethos.
We look forward to next year, and our son enrolling in a couple of years."

A MAJOR UPGRADE FOR PAKENHAM SECONDARY COLLEGE
Dear Students, Parents and Carers,
Given the result in the recent Victorian State Election (Saturday 26th November 2022), I would like to highlight to our College Community that we can expect an investment of $11.3 million from the Andrews Labor Government to deliver a Major Upgrade to our facilities.
I am thrilled with this investment in our great school. An investment of this magnitude is a huge confidence boost for our College Community. The funding expected will go a long way to further improving our facilities and to support our high quality teaching and learning program. We will now wait and see on next steps - let's hope that the Upgrade begins soon. I will keep our College Community fully informed of developments as they come to hand.
Please contact the General Office on 5945 1433 should you have any queries.
Thank you and regards,
College Principal - Pakenham Secondary College
