I am extremely proud to be the Principal of this fantastic school and I, along with all of our staff, warmly welcome you to find out more about our school and all it has to offer our community.

Student Voice is another key component of ensuring students who attend Warrandyte High School feel supported and heard. Students from all year levels are encouraged to join our Student Voice Council which meets fortnightly to discuss key issues and ideas around the school. Some recent examples of their success have included significant changes to our uniform, fundraising activities and input into key decision-making processes through representation on our School Improvement Team.
