Norseman District High School (4092)

School Overview

A positive learning community developing and growing together. That's our way at Norseman.

Norseman District High School is a Level 4 District High School catering for children from Kindergarten to Year 12. Our school is unique in that we have a population of children from interstate, other parts of WA and the 'Norseman Locals' creating an environment that is rich in diversity and opportunities to learn from each other. The traditional owners the Ngadju people have a broad understanding of the land, a passionate culture and are wonderful supporters of the school.

Our relative low student numbers allow our quality and passionate staff opportunities to individualise the curriculum to meet the childrens' needs. There is a wonderful balance of staff from beginning teachers to very experienced staff who very much value working collaboratively and put in a huge effort to deliver creative and inspirational lessons. The school boasts a strong ICT focus with iPads being used in all classes to develop 21st century learners. Our school bus is used frequently to offer a wide range of learning and sporting activities and opportunities for the children.

Staff and community members are determined to build on our already strong school culture and live up to our school ethos of 'a positive learning community developing and growing together'. Staff have developed the Norseman Way and all in our school community talk about 'a safe, friendly, inclusive environment where our interactions are positive and respectful'. The school uses the 'You Can Do It' Program' as a base for building and developing the important social and emotional skills that children need in their lives. Our school values are Respect, Commitment, Pride and Responsibility.

The school has strong links to the wider community and works closely with the Shire of Dundas to develop a strong sense of community amongst the children of the town. We have a strong parent group who support the children through the P&C, school council and in a multitude of other ways.

Our students and staff love our little school and so does our community.
