Year 11/12 Community Update

Our aim is that Whyalla Secondary College Senior School students will achieve their South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE)  and continue further study or move into the workplace. We work hard to build connections for our students to continue to thrive after their secondary schooling is completed. We extensively use SACE flexibilities and tailor our broad curriculum offering to cater for a range of student’s preferred post-secondary education pathways. We provide authentic learning and innovative academic, vocational, industry & entrepreneurial opportunities, and our students who achieve an ATAR gain entry to University and TAFE, whilst others complete their Vocational Education and Training (VET) are offered school based apprenticeships/traineeships, and move to meaningful employment.


In our senior school community, we are committed to cultivating an environment that celebrates inclusion and diversity, where each student is esteemed and welcomed for their distinctive qualities, contributing to a diverse array of experiences, cultures and perspectives that enhance our classrooms and learning.   We aim to develop the ‘whole person’ and are focused on fostering positive relationships through Restorative Practices and our Learning Communities. This is enhanced through our MENTORING program, which enables our staff  to know and understand all learners in our care. Our senior students are supported to thrive by exploring their career options, maintaining academic progress, identifying potential constraints that hinder success, being resilient when faced with a challenge, designing their own futures with a high level of self efficacy and developing a sense of belonging.


The robust relationships developed between our dedicated staff and students at Whyalla Secondary College are the cornerstone of our success. These strong connections translate into exceptional SACE results and academic achievements. Our students and community are fortunate in having enthusiastic and passionate teachers and leaders who work hard to prepare our students for a rapidly changing world and who are highly committed to getting the best outcomes possible for each student. They are motivated by the unwavering belief that every single young person in our system has the right to succeed and to thrive to the best of their ability. Our enthusiastic, independent learners are supported to thrive in a safe and positive environment by dedicated, knowledgeable teachers who reflect on their practice and offer quality differentiated teaching. Whyalla Secondary College senior school community is a high performing learning environment that delivers a relevant, rigorous inclusive curriculum focused on students’ capabilities and wellbeing development.


ATRiUM complements SACE capabilities by concentrating on developing effective employability skills for the 21st century, aiming to assist every student in proficiently developing all five capabilities include Personal Enterprise, Quality Thinking, Self-motivated Learning, Principled Action and Collective Engagement. These SACE capabilities compass and empower our senior school students to become active citizens and contributing members of the community.
