Leonora District High School (4151)



School Overview



Leonora is a town in the Goldfields-Esperance region of Western Australia, located approximately 833 kilometres northeast of Perth, and 237 kilometres north of the city of Kalgoorlie. Leonora District High School is a wonderfully unique school that caters for approximately 100 students from Kindergarten through to Year 12 with an Aboriginal population of approximately 78%.

All our students and our staff embrace a culturally response environment where our students are taught the Wongkatha language and participate in the Two-Way Science program. Our school is a lead School in Two-Way Science where students and staff learn together the western scientific approach along with the approaches that Aboriginal people have been using for centuries.

The school has a supportive, inclusive and positive culture, with innovative programs such as Two-Way Science, Kitchen-Garden and a brand new Food Greenhouse on site. Our goal for our students is to complete 13 years of education here in Leonora, achieve their WA Certificate of Education and go on to transition to further education, training or local employment.

The school prides itself on forming effective, positive relationships with students, families, staff and the wider community. Through the Positive Behaviour Schools process, we have defined the expected behaviours; Consider, Achieve Respect, Engage. We believe interesting and relevant learning experiences are vital to student engagement.

Our new school business plan is now going into effect in the first of a three-year cycle. The motto for Leonora DHS is 'We Care, We Succeed' The focus is on 'We Succeed' and academic outcomes for all students at Leonora DHS, supporting the strategic directions of the WA Education Department improvement driver to 'provide every student with a pathway to a successful future.'
