Principal’s Welcome

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Ravensthorpe District High School and thank you for visiting our website. It is an absolute pleasure to be the principal of the school and to work alongside a dedicated team of staff who are passionate about education and committed to helping our students reach their full potential.

We work hard to develop students who respect and care for themselves, those around them and their surroundings. We are focused on creating a culture of high expectations in teaching and learning, guided by a strong moral purpose and a belief that a quality education gives our students greater choices and possibilities in life. We set ourselves high ambitions and aim to instil in our students a range of skills, knowledge and interests that will allow for them to enjoy a meaningful, successful, and happy life. We aim to achieve this through a relevant and exciting curriculum, a safe, stimulating learning environment and a strong focus on supporting and guiding student career pathways and further study options.

We are at the heart of the community and are proud of the strong links we have with the local area. We firmly believe that education is a partnership between home and school and that encouraging and affirming relationships define our learning community. We recognise the very important role parents play in developing a successful learning environment and we invite you to become involved in your child’s education through being actively involved in school events and decision-making opportunities.

As Principal, my aim is to ensure that every child has a positive and rewarding time at Ravensthorpe District High School. My door is always open to parents wishing to discuss their child’s progress or anything related to the school. If you would like to have a guided tour of our school, please make a booking with the office administration.

I look forward to meeting you,

David Vooght-Simpson
Principal
