School Overview

Bruce Rock District High School, 240 km from Perth, caters for 150 children from Kindergarten to Year 10. In 2012 we received an 'Excellence in Public Education Award' as a result of an exemplary practice review of our school, we are very proud of this achievement and are focused on maintaining excellence. Our specialised team of early childhood staff provide high quality and engaging classes for the children's first introduction to education. Highly skilled staff provide a quality curriculum through middle and upper primary. Specialist teachers in high school deliver a diverse curriculum enabling students to successfully proceed to tertiary bound secondary studies, TAFE or vocational training. Whilst the school maintains a strong focus on literacy and numeracy, we achieve a balance between the academic, social and emotional domains to provide wrap around support for all children in our care.

Our school has a history of achieving high academic results where children are provided with a rigorous and challenging curriculum. A range of specialist programs taught by specialist staff provide further opportunities for students to pursue their interests and talents including Singing, Active After School Sport, Drumbeat, Academic Enrichment, Online Gifted & Program, Indonesian, Yr 10 Work Experience, Circus Skills and the True Blue Dreaming mentoring program. We encourage students to be confident and independent learners and use of IT is embedded into the curriculum.

At Bruce Rock DHS everybody matters and we provide a friendly, inclusive and caring environment where students feel supported and enjoy coming to school. An in-school mentoring program with secondary students mentoring junior primary students helps to build a sense of belonging and positive relationships across the entire school. We encourage parent involvement within the school and believe that the best results are achieved when parents and teachers work together for the benefit of their children. Our community takes great pride in the school and strong community partnerships serve to enhance the real life learning opportunities for our children.
