Heywood and District Secondary College seeks to provide an environment which is encouraging in its approach to learning, is safe and secure, where students can learn and develop their skills in an atmosphere free from harassment or negativity. At all times students will be encouraged to be respectful of others and co-operative in approach.
Heywood and District Secondary College is a small rural school that lies 30km north of Portland and approximately 72km from the South Australian Border. Our students travel from outlying areas from Dartmoor, Bessiebelle to Tyrendarra. The Heywood community, situated near the newly recognised Budj Bim National Park, has a strong indigenous connection to country. We ensure that our staff undergo Cultural Understanding and Safety Training (CUST) to encourage these connections to strengthen and maintain. Our cherished relationship with Winda-Mara sees local elders working closely with the school to support the local Aboriginal children and our teaching of our local Gunditjmara Language and Culture Program.
We strive to be valued as an innovative and outstanding College that promotes partnership between families, staff and the wider community. We support and empower students to accept responsibility for personal and academic growth and provide a safe and caring environment that allows all students to achieve their potential. We pride ourselves in the knowledge that each student is well-known to staff and that positive student-staff relationships prosper throughout the College.
