Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Prairiewood High School 

As Principal of Prairiewood High School, it is my pleasure to welcome you all to our school.

Prairiewood High School is a large school of 1300 students, with great diversity of cultural backgrounds and a vibrant community focus. Prairiewood High School is partially selective (60 students per year group), co-educational and comprehensive and we welcome four support classes.

At Prairiewood High School, we offer a wide range of opportunities in the classroom to support our students’ learning and extra-curricular activities such as sporting teams, debating, and music in which they can become involved. We also provide a wide range of additional support staff to assist students with specific learning and wellbeing needs, ensuring we cater to each student’s needs in as positive a manner as possible. To achieve a culture which aims to support student growth, Prairiewood High School:

·       Values excellence in teaching and learning;

·       Offers students rich and innovative opportunities for learning and leadership; and

·       Actively promotes wellbeing and positive relationships.

Prairiewood High School has a proud record of success, both in terms of academic results and with respect to student participation in community events such as White Ribbon, the Mental Health Push-Up Challenge (Push for Better) and High Resolves. We promote and value students acting in a respectful manner towards others, both at school and within the community. This helps our students act safely, as well as to form and maintain healthy relationships with others.

The school is held in very high regard by its community and has a strong focus on literacy, student engagement, high expectations and professional learning. In 2024 and beyond, the school will continue on its journey in collaboratively and critically reflecting on practice, building community partnerships, and exploring innovative teaching and learning to support and extend student achievement.
