Boddington District High School (4061)



School Overview



Boddington District High School's motto is 'We Foster Growth', derived from the school's rural and bush setting. The school is committed to the growth of students' intellectual, emotional, social, physical, aesthetic and creative faculties and to provide programs to increase the resilience of students and staff. We regard all students as individuals, encouraging them to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills to the fullest extent possible.

Located 120 kilometres south-east of Perth, Boddington District High School offers courses from Kindergarten to Year 10. We attract students from the local community as well as students from Quindanning, Wandering, Bannister and Crossman. We provide excellent teaching and quality learning, strong values and a supportive pastoral care program, as well as consistent and fair behaviour management.

As well as mathematics, English, humanities and science the school offers Indonesian, physical education and health, design and technology and food technology. Subjects are taught by experienced specialist teachers, allowing each student to develop their individual passions and talents in an IT rich learning environment. The school's positive and challenging educational programs develop the necessary knowledge and skills for students to become confident, independent learners.

We work in close partnership with parents, our School Council and our Parents' and Citizens' Association and have strong links to community organisations and local businesses, including the Lions Club, Country Women's Association, the two adjacent mines (Newmont Boddington Gold and South32 Worsley), and the Shire of Boddington.

Our facilities are modern and dynamic, including: a specialist computer laboratory; teaching hubs with class sets of laptops; interactive white boards in each class; a primary art room; a dedicated music room; a fully equipped manual arts facility; science laboratory; textiles and foods facilities (including industrial kitchen equipment and benches); an undercover assembly area; a fully equipped canteen; a specialist language room (Indonesian) and a horticultural nursery. The school is in close proximity to a swimming pool and recreation centre.
