The Woodville High School Old Scholars Association exists for past WHS students and friends in continuing their connection with their old school and its history. Its purpose is to provide a means to meet and celebrate their school memories, reminiscing experiences of it through events and gatherings.
Currently the Association runs approximately three events during each year including an Annual Dinner, luncheons and excursions.
The Woodville High School Old Scholars Association was reformed in 1991 and has continued to thrive since then. Newsletters are sent throughout each year to almost 500 recipients, and its financial membership ($20/year) provides the main source of income to the Association. The Association generously supports the school through annual donations and is active in supporting the schools programmes.
