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.

This is the year of getting better and stronger for Fern House. It comes with no surprise that this year, we will do whatever it takes to make sure Fern gets the pride it deserves. Both of us, Jagrit Sharma and Alina Haidari will give all our time and effort to make sure every single person in Fern feels accomplished in their studies, sports or any other extracurricular activity.

We are a family in Fern House. Our aim is to make sure each and every one of you know that you have the potential to do great things.

Whether it starts by running in athletics or by singing in Chorals, we will support you. Leadership isn’t just a badge or a blazer, it’s the fire that drives each one of you to achieve your best. Every single one of you has that fire. 2019 is the year we show everyone what Fern House is capable of.
