Welcome to Toodyay District High School. Breathe in the air, and you know immediately this school is special. Set in beautiful grounds next to the Avon River, yet only a couple of minutes’ walk from the town centre, the atmosphere is one of calm, controlled energy. This is an exciting and improving school where we firmly believe in partnership between staff, students and parents. At Toodyay DHS we have a passion for education and are firm in our belief that all students have the right to be able to learn effectively and develop self esteem, positive attitude and good academic and social skills. Our staff challenge, support and care for our students and encourage each to achieve their personal best in all that they do. We expect our students to set high standards in their academic work, extracurricular activities and in their relationships with others and want them to be individuals who will make a positive difference to the people around them both whilst they are at school and in the years to come.
Toodyay District High School strives to provide an inclusive and caring environment. All staff are committed to developing strong partnerships between students, parents, teachers, community agencies and the wider Toodyay community. All care is taken to ensure students are provided with the best possible learning opportunities and that each student’s best efforts are acknowledged. In stating our ethos, we acknowledge that the words alone are not sufficient. It is the actions, based on our ethos, which are important. Our purpose is to ensure that all students develop the knowledge, skills and confidence to achieve their individual potential and contribute to society.
The history of our school is very interesting, and we can trace our roots back to the 1850′s. You can read all about our school history under the ‘School Info’ tab on our website.
