Welcome back!

4/02/2015
​Year 8 cohort

​Welcome!


Tuesday, 27 January 2015 certainly was an historic day.  Year 7 became part of Wynnum State High School.  After years of preparation and anticipation, the big (very hot) day arrived and by 10.00 am they were already “high schoolers” with their timetables, student planners, House Groups and Core Teachers all sorted!  We also welcomed our new Year 8 students to Wynnum High.
I insisted that all students be present at 9.00 am on Day One so that the message was clear “Holidays are over, we are back at work!”

Students were reminded of what PROUD means here at Wynnum High and being Positive about our place at the school, being Respectful towards other people and remaining On Task are vital for success.  I discussed how the idea of Unified partnerships between students and teachers and being Determined leads to better outcomes for students throughout their time at school and beyond.  I emphasised that being at school at least 95% of the time goes a long way to ensuring they achieve their best.
 
I look forward to the 2015 school year with great anticipation and enthusiasm.  We welcome over 200 new families to the school as well as 19 new staff members.  We are happy to welcome the following new staff members to our Wynnum High community:
