School Background and Profile
Our school vision is to create an uplifting and positive environment where all staff, students and our community feel a sense of belonging. We deliver a relevant curriculum for our students by balancing academic achievement and other areas of endeavour including sport, technology, the Arts, and horticulture.
The Gingin community has a history of supporting school education going back as far as 1895. Our school was established first as a local school in 1964, and then as a District High School in 1981. We enrol students from a wide geographical area including the localities of Lancelin, Regan’s Ford, Bindoon, Muchea and Guilderton. The local community is very supportive. Our School Council includes community representation and Shire Council representation, as well as parent and teacher representatives.
Our school has an active Student Services Team that provides support for students across all year levels. The support could be academic, social or emotional, including supporting any students that are feeling bullied at school.
Most students come to Gingin District High School by bus. School buses are well maintained and supervised, and bus drivers provide regular information and communication to parents and the school. Your family may be eligible for transport assistance for travel to and from your school bus stop; please check on the Public Transport Authority website.
Many children arrive at school after a long bus ride, so our school Breakfast Program is a program for all students, even if they have already had breakfast before they left home. The Breakfast Program is held in the undercover area at school.
Our Parents and Citizens’ Association works constantly with the school to improve school programs and the school environment. We would like to invite you to be a member of our P&C committee. Please contact the school or the P&C president directly.
