Principal's message

Karen Smith

 

Our commitment at Wyndham College is to provide programs that train students to be effective learners – learning to learn. Students engage in experiences that involve deep understanding, substantive conversation and higher order thinking.

Students benefit from the opportunity to learn in a senior learning environment that enhances their development as responsible, autonomous and self-directed learners.

We understand the learning, social and cultural needs of our students and provide programs that optimise the capacity to meet these needs. Staff ensure that students have many opportunities to develop as mature learners while they are supported in dealing with the challenges unique to their development as young adults.

Our philosophy is based on andragogy or the belief that our students will become increasingly skilled at identifying and setting goals based on achieving their personal best in all that they do. Our school culture takes advantage of the development of the students as young adults, particularly their ability to take greater responsibility for responding appropriately in both their learning and social environments.
