Gingin District High School (4135)

School Overview

Gingin District High School is located approximately 85 kilometres north of Perth and caters for students from Kindergarten to Year 10.
Gingin District High School services a large geographical area including the localities of Lancelin, Guilderton, Muchea, Regan's Ford and parts of the Shire of Chittering.

Our school aims to 'Create a positive, uplifting community where students succeed.' We do this through a whole school commitment to supporting individual students across their years of schooling.

We provide a comprehensive curriculum for all year levels. Literacy and numeracy are the major aspects of the learning in early childhood and primary classrooms. Secondary programs focus largely on broadening the development of skills across the curriculum including in specialised learning areas. The school's literacy plan and numeracy plan have led to high levels of achievement over the past three years, with Gingin District High School performing as well as or better than other schools across the state. Secondary students who have been at the school until Year 10 have achieved outstanding results in Year 11 and 12, with some achieving subject awards and school awards, and most going on to a successful university career or a quality trade traineeship.

Our teaching staff are dedicated in all their work and are professional in their approach.

The School Council provides strategic governance for our school and has staff, parent and community representatives, including a representative from the Shire of Gingin. We have an active Parents and Citizens' Association which works constantly with the school to improve our programs and environment. The student council plays an important role in advocating on behalf of student issues in the school. Through a partnership with the Shire of Gingin the student council meets in the Shire Chambers under the guidance of the Chief Executive Officer.

The school offers a large number of opportunities to learn outside the classroom environment. The school has established links with the Gingin Gravity Discovery Centre, assisting with the development of this project and participating in a number of shared educational programs. Secondary students have an opportunity to participate in the District High School Country Week program each year. Other educational excursions are organised by individual classes throughout the year.
