Halls Creek District High School (4145)

School Overview

At Halls Creek District High School, we have developed both a culture of high expectations and a high care environment where success is supported and celebrated.

We are striving to be a school of achievement through our consistent teaching practices, dynamic educational experiences, and active community engagement.

Located in the Central Kimberley Region between Broome and Kununurra, most students come from the town of Halls Creek and the communities of Mardiwa Loop and Nicholson Block. A few students commute from a number of family communities within 20 kms of Halls Creek, Koongie Park Station (20kms) and Lamboo Station (40kms).

Our Kindergarten to Year 12 students focus on their literacy and numeracy, while secondary students also concentrate on employment preparation.

Recently graduates have been successful in transitioning to further studies, traineeships and or local employment.

Increases in the completion rate of Vocational Education programs have enabled students to reach their attainment and graduate with real potential for future careers.

In recent years, a number of students have been successful in achieving places in University bridging courses where they have been able to continue their higher academic achievement.

Our school is continually supported by the Clontarf and Shooting Stars academies that assist with the health and well-being of both male and female students.

We are focussed on being responsive to the community and actively support interagency network development to provide wrap-around services to students and their families. This includes working with the Remote School Attendance Strategy team in a successful national partnership.

Our School Council has been an active partner in the development of sound accountability measures providing invaluable support and input into the function and direction of the School Strategic Plan 2018-2020. This group will continue to provide assistance and shared responsibility in ensuring the school reflects the community needs.

Our school has a fully integrated computer laboratory, a library resource centre, along with purpose-built home economics, science, and design and technology facilities. Students can also gain Certificates I and II in Media, Sport and Recreation, Building and Construction and Bushrangers at a nearby site.
