Change of Timetable

We are hosting local Primary and Intermediate Year 8 students for workshops in the next couple of weeks as they look to enrol at WHS for 2017.  We have changed the timetable slightly to ensure that class time for is not negatively affected.

Things to note:

  • Classes will start at 8.45am and students will go home at 12.20pm.  No late start for any students.
  • There will be 3 periods instead of 4 with period 3 running one week and period 4 the next week (to minimise lost class time)
  • If your student is under 14 years, we will have supervision in the Library until 3.20pm should it be needed.
