Woodville High School has a long, 105 year old history of producing “Proud scholars in a proud community.” We provide opportunities and support for successful learning in a safe, supportive environment in which individuals are encouraged to expand and develop their knowledge, skills and graduate habits. These graduate habits will empower them to be successful members of a global society.
As leaders of an innovative and creative learning community, we are committed to effective teaching and success for every student. As a member of the local and global community, Woodville high School provides rich learning opportunities in a culturally diverse environment that values Well-being for all.
The graduates of Woodville High School will be prepared to be:
Global and local citizens
Respectful of other people
Confident life-long learners
Graduates are advantaged as emerging global citizens through the diversity of cultures represented in the school population. Global perspectives inform subject content and students are encouraged to develop intercultural understanding through pastoral care programs.
Year 12 Day of Action
Year 12 students recently excelled in a range of student-initiated and led activities to support global and local community causes in a Day of Action.
One group raised funds for Hutt Street Centre by participating in an overnight Sleep Out at school. Another group
ran a car wash that raised enough to purchase 40 birthing kits, which the group assembled for the Birthing Kits Foundation some weeks later.
These have been sent to support women giving birth in remote areas of countries overseas.
Yet another group set out to raise awareness of poverty and hunger.
Farewell from Leanda Herring,
Head of Music
On a personal note, I would like to thank all current and past members of the Woodville High School community (students, staff and parents) who have continued to provide support for the Special Interest Music program at our school, and also to myself in my role as Head of Music for the past 23 years.
After 39 years of teaching classroom Music, 36 of those at Woodville High School, I am retiring from teaching at the end of this term to pursue a career in creative writing.
I will always hold a special place in my heart for my time spent at Woodville High School and leave with many wonderful memories and a true sense of pride in our students and our school.
After a thorough application and interview process, a panel, led by the Education Director Paul Newman
and with staff and Governing Council representation, Anna Mirasgentis has been appointed as the next Principal of Woodville High School.
Anna is currently the Manager of Curriculum, Learning and Wellbeing in the Catholic Education Office supporting 101 primary and secondary schools.
