Welcome to Whyalla Secondary College 

​​Whyalla Secondary College respects Aboriginal People as having the oldest continuing cultures in human history. Our students develop an understanding of diverse cultural backgrounds, appreciating our differences, and inspiring in many a life long respect for the uniqueness and perspective of every individual.

​Our students will become the social, political and cultural leaders of the next generation and the school has a clear responsibility to ensure that every student has been prepared to respond in a well informed, imaginative, courageous, caring and socially responsible manner.

Earlier this term, the year 7 cohort held a year level assembly and the following students were awarded with certificates for demonstrating the school value of Inclusion; Congratulations Lilli-Anne, Ben, Logan, Caleb, Brrych and Karley. 😀 ...

Today is Harmony Day! 🤝

Today is about celebrating unity and diversity, whether that means becoming closer to our neighbours or gaining a better understanding of someone from the other side of the world. 🌏

Visit the official Harmony Day website for more information ⬇

Senior School Study Session!

Our students were given time and space to:
• Complete overdue tests/assignments
• Catch up with work that is due soon
• Improve grades enacting on teachers’ feedback
• Students said they completed significant sections of their work
• Teachers received drafts and final copies for summative tasks

In a few words: Study Sessions were extremely successful. 😀

NAPLAN starts today for students in years 7 and 9 at WSC. 📝

It’s important to remember that this is just one of the tools used to support your child’s learning. An open, honest and positive conversation can help reassure your child and build their overall confidence.

It's important to encourage students to:
👍 Try their best
📄 Read each question carefully
💤 Have a good night’s sleep
🍎 Eat healthy food on the day

Good luck to everyone taking part!

A reminder that the college will be closed on Monday 13 March due to the public holiday! 😀 ...

These students will play an important role in the creation and development of this program and will work alongside participants to ensure students in SA can demonstrate their capacity for participation and active citizenship.
