Warragul Secondary School
St Paul’s has a reputation for providing opportunities which enrich and recognise the unique talents of our students.
Welcome to the secondary years of schooling at St Paul’s where our main focus is to give students a wide variety of experiences. The Secondary School offers opportunities for all students to become life-long learners. It develops the full potential of every student through an innovative academic, cultural, spiritual and sporting program – all provided within a caring and supportive pastoral environment.
Throughout their time at St Paul’s, students are challenged to constantly seek improvement in all that they do. We believe in a Growth Mindset, this is the belief that ability and intelligence are not fixed, but can be developed through effort and perseverance.
All students in the Secondary School have their own notebook computer. The buildings have full network connectivity via cable and wireless technology. This facility enables each class to have access to information and research online using the latest in technology.
Every student is placed within a Mentor Group. These smaller groups within the School help create a sense of belonging and identity. Mentors and Heads of Year monitor the daily needs of the students in their care.
There are many opportunities for leadership in the Secondary School including the roles of School Captains, Prefects, House Captains, members of the Student Representative Council and captains of sporting and co-curricular activities. Our teachers support these students to develop their leadership skills as they apply themselves to and take on the challenges of their chosen activity.
