Welcome to Dickson College
The School to Work Program (S2W) is an education and employment program that utilises the positive profile of the game of Rugby League to support and encourage young Indigenous Australians to complete their schooling and successfully transition into further education or employment. The NRL School to Work program have worked with our First Nations students at Dickson College for over 5 years now, supporting students through their chosen aspirations and pathways.
This year two DC year 11 students have been chosen to represent the Raiders clubs and ACT NRL S2W program at the National Indigenous Youth Summit. Congratulations to Georgia James and Poppy Chalmers who will be heading off to Sydney later this term for this amazing leadership opportunity. This year we also want to congratulate recent DC graduate, Georgie Jaques, was involved in the creation of the artwork for the Indigenous Round Raiders Jersey.
Well done everyone!

Dickson College will be hosting its Information Night online on, Thursday 26 May, 2022 at 6:00pm. This will be a great opportunity to hear from the Principal, key staff, and current students, who can answer the questions you may have about academic subjects, student support, extra-curricular activities and life within our thriving school community.
The night will be hosted on the Webex platform. To ensure a smooth user experience, including access to our promotional videos and virtual tours, please register for the event on the link below:
Students attending Lyneham, Campbell and Harrison Schools will participate in transition visits (including a College tour) later in the year. Any student that resides in our PEA (Priority Enrolment Area) requiring additional assistance to transition to College, should contact the school.
There will be an Information Session for students with a disability immediately after the Principal’s presentation and Q&A. These families are encouraged to contact the College to organise a transition visit as soon as possible after the Information Night.
