Ringwood History

Opened in 1954, Ringwood High School (Ringwood Secondary College) enjoyed a traditional life with Domestic Science, Cadets, prefects and trips to the Royal Melbourne Show. Nowadays the curriculum is global, creative and technological.

Today the Heritage and Alumni group supports reunions, promotes celebrations, produced ‘Ringwood Recalls’ – 50 years of schooling, crafted five Jubilee Quilts and fosters the recognition of students through four halls: Heritage, Sporting Hall of Fame, Arts Hall of Achievement and Science Hall of Excellence.

An Honour Board recognises staff with 20 years of service to the College.

Members of the Heritage and Alumni group help at key functions, interview students and provide links with the wider community. It is with pride that the College welcomes second and third generation students.
