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.

Day In the Life at WSC

Our Curriculum has a central focus on the ATRiUM capabilities where students actively learn, creatively think, relate to others using language through symbols, ICT and being able to manage self.

All 5 capabilities will assist students in developing effective employability skills, setting them up for success as empowered community citizens.
