From the Principal

Welcome to Whitebridge High School

Whitebridge is a proudly comprehensive high school that offers its students the best educational opportunities, in an inclusive, safe and secure learning environment. We are committed to a broad, balanced and relevant curriculum that extends students in all areas of learning and develops their skills to be successful in our constantly changing world. The diverse curriculum is designed to support all students to grow as learners and it challenges students to achieve their best.

The curriculum places emphasis on the fundamentals of literacy and numeracy as well as catering for students’ creative, technological, cultural, vocational and sporting interest and aptitudes through both curriculum courses and extra curricula programs. The school offers a unique wilderness program that enhances students’ personal development and forms part of our strong focus on student wellbeing.

While valuing its past and its traditions, the school is a leader in addressing the opportunities arising from a rapidly changing world and educational landscape. It is at the forefront in offering Asian languages and cultural experiences to its students as well as aligning quality-teaching programs, assessment and reporting to the national curriculum.

Whitebridge High School offers quality environments that enrich learning and celebrates positive relationships between teachers and students, and the school and its community. We are a proud member of the Whitebridge Community of Schools fostering and enhancing communication between partner primary schools and our high school so that students and their families can enjoy a high quality kindergarten to Year 12 education experience.

The school is comprehensive in its curriculum and inclusiveness. It aims to achieve excellence and equity and incorporates extension programs for gifted and talented students and support programs for students with learning difficulties.

Whitebridge High nurtures the qualities of respect, self-discipline, responsibility and courteous behaviour. We recognise, acknowledge and celebrate personal achievement as well as providing opportunities for students to learn good citizenship and community responsibility.
