Welcome to Year 10
Welcome to Year 10 – the foundation year for the VCE. It is a year of personal growth, emerging leadership and academic realisation. Year 10s begin to take on increasing responsibilities and present as role models for younger students. They are also encouraged to look more broadly beyond themselves and are challenged to explore what it means to be a citizen of the world. There is also a focus on developing effective study skills and an emphasis on setting lifelong learning goals. We encourage year 10s to strive to ‘be the change they want to see in the world’.

2017 Book orders - to be updated in Term 4
The booklists for all year levels and order forms can be found on the Secondary Booklist page.
We offer books through two possible suppliers - Campion and OzTextbooks. For math subjects, there is also the option to buy your calculator as part of a bulk purchase through the college, at a lower cost. Calculators purchased this way can be picked up from the college. The Friends of Donvale (FOD) parent group also manage and offer second-hand books for sale.
Forms & Letters to Parents
These have been emailed to you, but in the possibility that they went missing in action, please download them below. Most forms need to be returned to Secondary Administration if not otherwise specified on the document.
Excursion and Camps
In Year 10 we have a number of excursions designed to enhance students' learning, tightly linked to the curriculum. Camps give students opportunities to interact with each other and work in teams outside of the school environment. They learn new outdoor and nature-based skills and take home great memories! The camp(s) planned for this year be listed here with permission slips.
