Our Woodville High School community acknowledges the traumatic events happening in Afghanistan. As a school, we are supporting our students and teachers as we know many families in our community are impacted. Our thoughts are with you and your families, both here in Australia and in Afghanistan during this unsettling and difficult time.
Woodville High School prides itself on being a welcoming and inclusive community that believes every individual’s human rights and dignity should be upheld and respected. As a school, we offer you and your children the services of our school’s Wellbeing Leaders: Cherie Hutton, Justin Mitchell and Mandy Price. We are fortunate to have a School Psychologist commencing Tuesday 7 September and will be working at the school three days a week. Young people are encouraged to make appointments with the Wellbeing Team through our school website.

Children can be especially sensitive to what they are seeing in the media and may worry that something may happen to themselves. Some ways to support your child is to limit the amount of media coverage your child is exposed to, answer any questions they may have, talk about their feelings and provide them with support and comfort to help them feel safe.
