At Wirreanda Secondary we recognise middle schooling as the most critical phase in the cognitive, physical and emotional development of our students. Adolescents are naturally curious about the world, with a strong sense of justice and the need to develop a sense of identity. We work hard to establish a middle school community and environment which is both challenging and nurturing. With a strong connection and partnership with families and primary schools we strive to ensure a smooth transition into secondary school, supporting students to develop resilience while establishing positive and respectful relationships. Our year 8 team collaborate closely to ensure all students are supported and connected to our Wirreanda community.
