Welcome to Fern House!

Fern House has a whole school responsibility for Student Pathways, Work Experience and in school Transition. The Fern team ensures that all students have a clear understanding of their subject choices for the following year, based on possible student pathways. We also work closely with the Careers team in delivering programs to our students in Years 9 – 12 from our outside providers, such as Monash, Deakin and Swinburne Universities, RMIT and others, to enable our students to have as much information as possible to make informed decisions as to their pathways when they leave Dandenong High School. Students aged 15 years or older will also experience a work experience related to a possible pathway, to further develop their thinking about pathways beyond school.

It is vitally important that that all students achieve a successful transition from one year to the next and to pathways beyond school – whether into University, TAFE, Apprenticeships or work.

It is an incredible honour to be the newly elected 2017 House Captains for Fern House, a House that prides itself in welcoming and accepting the uniqueness of each and every student of all ethnicities. Our ‘Fernians’ strive to achieve greatness to the best of our ability, which is demonstrated through our active participation in Swimming Carnival, Athletics Carnival and the House Chorales. These school events allow the students and teachers of Fern House to develop and embrace our true House spirit, which can be utilised to encourage everyone to build supportive relationships and a positive environment among our staff and students.

We, as your Fern House Captains, aim to create a safe environment for our students and a positive atmosphere in which they feel comfortable expressing their thoughts and opinions as well as articulating ways to improve not only our House but the school as a whole. Our goal is to ensure that all students of Fern House enjoy their experience at school through the many privileges and opportunities the school offers and to create precious memories through involvements of laughter and happiness. We look forward to the exciting year ahead of us and are fortunate to be working amongst a passionate, dedicated and diverse group of individuals.
