Welcome to Woodhill State School. We are very proud of our school and I am delighted to have your family join us as part or our community. I sincerely hope you have a prosperous and rewarding association with our school.
The Woodhill School and community is about providing a positive, safe, challenging and supportive educational environment for all children. In seeking to achieve this we encourage open and effective communication among teaching staff, children and parents. We are constantly striving to enhance these partnerships in order to gain the best educational outcomes for your child.
Our mission Statement, 'Together We Care, Grow and Learn', is very important in our school and we refer to it as the most important ideal that we hold. This overarches our values, and directs our school in everything we do. Our school community works very hard, to ensure our children’s development is a caring, learning experience.
It is a well-known fact that the most important learning in a person’s life occurs in the first five years. Our role is to extend this learning in a classroom environment to ensure that all students continue their learning and achieve to the best of their ability.
You are most welcome to join us in educating your child. Your involvement at school can have an important impact on the learning of students whether you assist in the Classroom (art, computers, and sports) Tuckshop, Library or Guided Reading. If you can help in our school in some way, it is greatly appreciated by all. This also shows your children that you are enthusiastic in their learning and gives you an opportunity to see and be a part of your children’s learning and the decision making at school.
It is important to keep in touch with your child’s learning activities by talking to your children and their teachers about their schooling. Be involved in the Parents & Citizens Association and other committees; read the school newsletter carefully each week and ask questions of staff or other parents if there is information you do not understand. Helping out in any way and knowing what is expected of your children while they are at school can only assist their learning.
Staff work hard to ensure that our school is a great school and a safe place for students, staff and parents.
