The partnership of preschools and schools working together with the local community will provide new opportunities to strengthen collective capabilities by providing skills, expertise and shared resources.
Woodville High School has a long tradition of producing proud scholars in a proud community. Our WHS Old Scholars Association plays an important role in maintaining the current school’s links to this tradition.
The Old Scholars Association was reformed in 1991 after the celebration of the school’s 75th anniversary in 1990. The Association has approximately 350 members who live in South Australia, other states and territories and overseas. These old scholars, past teachers and leaders of Woodville High School receive updates about association events and honours awarded to past scholars through regular newsletters. We have an active social calendar which provides opportunities for old scholars to renew and maintain their school friendships and keep links with their old school. Annually, the Old Scholars hold a dinner in August at which dinner participants enjoy hearing an address by a past scholar who has achieved acclaim in their chosen field of career or community service. Other annual events include a Principal’s tour of the school, luncheons, theatre visits and other forms of social activities. The Association provides:
An historical perspective for current students and leadership team
Financial support for programs in the school
Academic prizes for the school’s annual Speech Night in November
Woodville High School has been part of the Inner West partnership for the last four years, as an organizational group within the Department for Education (DfE). This coalition provides a link with local pre-schools, primary schools and other secondary sites, ensuring continuity of educational provision from Birth to graduation from year 12.
The partnership of preschools and schools working together with the local community will provide new opportunities to strengthen collective capabilities by providing skills, expertise and shared resources to carry out professional responsibilities and new tasks in the context of the reform measures directed at raising standards and improving teaching and learning.
Education Director, Mr. Paul Newman, works closely with site leaders on initiatives and discussion topics which are pertinent to all sites.
The Inner West priorities are:
We want to be part of a culture that reflects all teachers and leaders believe all children will learn and achieve their highest potential.
Smoother transitions through the public education system to ensure continuity of learning for children and young people (0-18 years) living in the Inner West.
Develop integrated approaches to working with community agencies toward more equitable access to resources by children, young people and families in the Inner West.
