Welcome to Wheelers Hill Secondary College. We have a fine tradition of academic excellence, a breadth of programs and opportunities, outstanding facilities and a vibrant community of parents, students and teachers who are committed to the best possible outcomes for all.

 

Our Vision is to:

  • Provide a safe and welcoming learning environment where every individual is valued

  • Promote student confidence and self-belief to assist students to reach their full potential

 

Our Vales are:

  • The pursuit of personal best for all
  • Respect for self and others in our learning pursuits
  • Sustaining an environment that promotes honesty, compassion, resilience and understanding
  • Encouraging collaborative learning and teamwork

 

We pride ourselves on providing leaning opportunities to our students in the following areas:

Wheelers Hill Secondary College is built on positive relationships. Our community of students also gives us the opportunity to know and nurture each individual student. We provide an educational experience that is accessible, meaningful and relevant.

 

Our Annual Implementation Plan (AIP) for 2017 sets out a path for continuous improvement in many areas such as Student Empowerment and Numeracy and Literacy. We have a range of strategies to improve our student outcomes and we have much to celebrate in terms of student achievement.

 

In 2016, we are thrilled to offer our exciting Performing Arts Program. The Performing Arts are an important part of our College and we are proud to extend opportunities to our students in this area.

 

We have some significant partnerships with key groups such as those involved with the Technical Schools Initiative, Rotary, the Lions Club and Nadrasca.

 

Our Dux for 2016, Wan Da Chao, is to be congratulated for his outstanding achievement. We are proud of Wan Da and all of our students at the College.

 

The efforts of our hard working staff and the programs we have implemented have a positive impact on student learning. Our teachers and support staff have the talent, experiences and skills to get the best out of students. Our staff committed to the success of our students and their own professional growth.

 

We are focussed on maximising our student outcomes. We have high expectations for student attendance and effort. We seek the support of all families to provide maximum encouragement and support for their students. We get strong student results in all areas including the VCE.

 

We offer core and extra-curricula programs at all levels, directed towards academic success, student wellbeing and positive pathways. From sports, music, debating and SRC to camps, international tours and challenge programs, we provide opportunities for a huge range of student interests and learning styles.

 

Our innovative Extension and Enrichment program has a particular focus on extending Literacy and Numeracy competencies to enhance outcomes in all studies and has proven to be very successful.

 

We have a strong Student Leadership Program including 'Student Voice'. We encourage and support our students to develop their confidence and build their skills by responding positively to the many challenges they experience and by contributing to the development of our school and the broader community.

 

Our parent community is very supportive of the College through Council, book and uniform sales and in a range of informal and volunteer situations. We have facilities that have undertaken major developments, they are well presented supporting teaching and learning in all areas.

 

Wheelers Hill Secondary College is built on positive relationships allowing for our students to achieve their personal best. We provide an educational experience that is accessible, meaningful and relevant.

 

I am confident that we offer outstanding educational opportunities. I encourage you to visit our College, seek further information if required or tour the school. I am certain you will be impressed by what we have to offer at our school
