Dear WHS Community,
To support our transition to flexible teaching and learning ready for term 2, there will be 4 pupil free days from 6 to 9 April 2020 inclusive. This time will allow our staff to plan and prepare for new models of school based and home based learning.
Here is some best advice to make sure that your learning continues.
LEARNING FROM HOME
Teachers will put messages, instruction, learning goals, new resources and new task onto the Daymap system. You will need to check this every day. You will get tasks to be completed every week in every subject.
Woodville High School has a long, 104 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 Year Level Day
The Year 12 Year Level day was held at Adelaide University, where our Acting Principal, Neil Hendry, gave an inspiring talk about having a personal vision of how students see their future and the many advantages of further education.
He encouraged students to set their sights on deciding on and achieving their goals. Students had a thought-provoking presentation from Adelaide University staff on Jobs of the Future.
This year, we have introduced an Intensive Secondary English Course (ISEC) at Woodville, which enables students to strengthen their English Literacy skills and knowledge, before entering mainstream schooling.
In the past, students would attend Adelaide Secondary School of English prior to enrolling at Woodville. One of the benefits of offering ISEC to students is that it allows them to enrol directly into their school of choice, reducing the anxiety and nerves associated with entering a new school.
On Tuesday the 4th of February, Tamia Blackwell, graduate of 2019, was awarded the CSIRO Aboriginal and Torres Strait
Islander Student STEM Achievement Award at a ceremony in Melbourne.
This national award is recognition for passion, enthusiasm and success in the STEM field, whilst also displaying leadership in the community.
Tamia was instrumental in the success of the ATSI STEM Congress, an event which attracted over 500 Indigenous students from across the state to come together in a student-led conference, highlighting the past and ongoing achievement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander scientists.
