Event description
Are you Year 7 "Ready To Go”? Come and hear us share our Wirreanda Secondary School Year 7 to HS Journey.

About this Event

Wirreanda Secondary School has been on a considerable and exciting change journey to ensure, 21 years into the 21st century, we are responsive to the world we live in and the future on our doorstep. This has compelled several significant changes which have and continue to challenge how, why and when learning happens.

Change has been driven by the needs of students and the best pedagogical approaches to facilitate deep learning, critical and creative thinking and collaboration. Our structures engage staff in differentiated and optional PD opportunities, underpinned by a commitment to online collaboration and effective use of the digital tools we now have at our disposal as professionals. Traditional compulsory meetings are gone, instead, staff have choice and short frequent “huddles” and optional PD.

Our approaches and improvement journey over the last few years at Wirreanda Secondary school have been underpinned knowing that our community would be complete with Year 7’s joining us finally. We were incredibly privileged to be 1 of 3 schools selected for the Year 7 pilot program to enrol Year 7 students from 2020. We were selected because of our focus on progressive approaches to quality teaching and learning, our collaborative environment, and our extensive transition program incorporating strong connections with local primary schools. This event provides an opportunity to get an insight into how we became “Ready to Go”.
