Why Woodcroft?

Woodcroft students are able to access a world-quality education.

They are supported in a very professional and collegial environment; the staff care about them and beyond that they have wonderful opportunities in many local, sporting and overseas programs. The world is at their doorstep.

People sometimes ask the question: Why Woodcroft? A better question is: Why not? The curriculum is internationally-recognised; the focus is student-centred; the pastoral care is outstanding; the extra-curricular program is broad; and a sense of community is ever-present. The best way to experience Woodcroft is to visit. Why not explore the website or, better still, book a College Tour? We can’t wait to welcome you to our community.

From our College Captains

‘I Can and I Will, Watch Me’
 
Beginning our new year journey, we were hit with a sudden wave of emotions, from excitement to nervousness, to a feeling of being overwhelmed about the year ahead. However, this quote produced by the graduating class of 2020, inspires confidence, perseverance, grit, and a driving force for the year ahead.
 
Upon re-entering the grounds of Woodcroft College we appreciate and pay special thanks to the staff and groundsmen who have spent their efforts in the holidays to give us a school to be proud of and a smooth start to 2020.
 
Already within the first few weeks back at Woodcroft, it has been great to see a really positive atmosphere around the College.
 
As we venture into the year ahead, let us view the year as a blank book, filled with only our potential. The beauty of a new year is that it is a clean slate, presenting us with new opportunities, new challenges and new stories. Each page representing a new day, a unique journey, and endless possibilities.
 
As we write our story, let us make the most of each new day by living in the moment, and to appreciate the luxuries that we might take for granted. Each day as we write in this book, we should embrace the challenges that we will endure, skills we have learnt, and the achievements that we have accomplished.
 
Making the most of every moment allows us to appreciate the opportunities that each new day brings.

Cloe Griffiths and Connor Ferguson

 

Pastoral Care of our Students is a Priority

Our Pastoral Care system ensures that all students are supported and valued as an individual. The fostering of high quality relationships among students, parents and staff is a responsibility shared by everyone.

"At Woodcroft we are committed to providing the best possible care for our students. Teachers are supported by our Student Services Team, consisting of a Director of Student Services and two qualified counsellors, and the College Chaplain."

Outdoor Education Programs

The primary goal of the Woodcroft Outdoor Education Program is to develop the following three qualities in our students:

Perseverance: trying hard, not giving up too soon and becoming more resilient.
Selflessness: regularly acting for the benefit of others rather than self.
Community Spirit: feeling a responsibility for the welfare of society.

The activities students take part in are not viewed as ends in themselves: that is, we do not think it is vital that all our students learn how to sleep in a tent, rock climb or solve initiative problems. Rather, we see these experiences as effective ways to teach valuable lessons about life.

The Outdoor Education Program supports students to experience success at their own pace and ability level, while facing mental and physical challenges.
