Year 10 at Cranbourne East Secondary College focuses on a positive learning environment aimed at preparing students for their future pathways. We have high expectations from our students in regards to work ethic, homework, behaviour, uniform and punctuality and offer an engaging program aimed to develop leadership and confidence.

The Year 10 course is designed to prepare the students for either the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) or the Victorian Certificate of Applied Learning (VCAL) with accelerated learning through VCE subjects and VCAL courses. Vocational Education and Training (VET) programs are also offered.

Students begin to consider their career options and they are guided and assisted through work experience, career expos, study skills and course counselling so they can make informed choices about Year 11 and beyond. Every student has the opportunity to pursue their goals through core subject offerings and elective choices to suit their needs.

Year 10 Student Voice

The Year 10 team values the student voice program, which is a key strategy in the promotion of student leadership and engagement within Cranbourne East Secondary College. It also plays a key role in improving and strengthening community links between students, parents and the wider CESC community.

We are proud to have Naveed Bahram and Shaun Marchingo represent the Year 10 cohort in 2016. They will be working collaboratively with the class captains and the Year Level Leaders to provide students with the opportunity to voice their opinion, discuss any concerns that individuals or classes may have and build a positive school environment.


It is imperative that we acknowledge the achievements and positive work ethic of our students throughout the year to encourage and support them to continually strive for academic and personal success. In Year 10, students are rewarded for academic excellence, academic endeavour, uniform and 100% attendance. We also have a ‘raffle ticket’ reward program where students are rewarded in recognition of students upholding the values of the College. During Term 2, students attended Gravity Zone as a ‘fun day’ for students and also competed in HomeGroup Trivia Challenges. These opportunities will continue throughout the Year.
