Grevillea, the purple House, prides itself on its reputation at Dandenong High School. Grevillea’s students are good-natured, accepting and inclusive of others and work hard to achieve their goals. Grevillea staff members are dedicated, supportive and collaborative, continually aiming to improve outcomes for their students in terms of their learning of the curriculum and their personal growth into young adults. The staff and students take pride in appearance; of themselves, of their learning spaces and of the school environment in general. In House competitions, Grevillea House members display their House pride and compete with integrity and fairness and a desire to succeed. In victory Grevillea exhibits humility and in defeat is accepting and celebratory of the success of others.
Grevillea is where we encourage one another to be the best they can be and where we treat others with respect, dignity and pride. For many others, Grevillea is our second home, for it provides a positive and safe environment, where students feel comfortable within their learning spaces and encouraged to share their concerns, thoughts and ideas. Which therefore creates a strong unique relationship between Staff and Students. Grevillea House, we highly value the learning of others. In saying that, the House Leadership Team and Staff, continue to make learning enjoyable for all, as well as supporting and encouraging students to be committed, dedicated to our learning and to strive for success. In the past few years Grevillea has been very successful in House Events such as Swimming, Athletics Carnival and School Chorales.
As the Grevillea House Captains for 2017, we are beyond grateful and blessed to be the voices for all Grevillians. Our goals are to make everyone feel well appreciated, and to encourage students to do everything to their full potential. Including coming out of their comfort zone, to learn new things, to grow, to become more confident and to gain new experiences. So, for 2017, together as a House we will come together to achieve these goals to help make this year a good one. We also hope to create memorable moments that we as Grevilleans will cherish.
