Welcome to Gingin District High School for the 2018 school year.  We are looking forward to another successful and positive year for the school and students!

We have achieved very good performance in Literacy and Numeracy over the past few years, and many of our students have achieved outstanding results at Year 11 and 12 level in schools that they have transitioned into.  Our school continues to provide a high level of care in a beautiful rural environment, and we are justifiably proud of the work of our teaching and non-teaching staff.

As a Kindergarten to Year 10 school, we are able to nurture our students over their whole educational career.  Our staff are heavily engaged in working to develop our school, with 100% of our teaching staff engaged in working committees to improve our school.  Students see the benefit of this through our school performance results and our caring atmosphere.

Our school works with the Western Australian curriculum defined by the School’s Curriculum and Standards Authority, and our standards are defined in terms of comparisons to state-wide norms and expectations.

On this website we outline our behavioural expectations (http://gingin.wa.edu.au/index.php/2018/05/02/behaviour-policy-and-school-expectations/) for students which are unique to this school, and which have been developed by staff, parents and students.  We expect all staff and students to be Considerate, show Respect, Try, and be Responsible.  We use the acronym ‘CRTR’ (pronounced ‘Critter’) to highlight these expectations.  You will see our Critter posters and a Behaviour Expectations Matrix in all classrooms.

Parents are the first teachers of their children and we value your collaboration with us as partners in your child’s education.  As such, we hope that you find this year’s Information Handbook useful and helpful.
