We want to go even further to help our students succeed in high school, and in future academic pursuits.
That's why our homework and study support is available after the bell goes, each night and on weekends, so your child is always supported when they get stuck on a problem during moments of independent learning.
We want to provide personal help: specific to your child's questions, time of need and learning level. YourTutor is online, on-demand study help - right when you need it. As soon as your child has a question, they can connect to an expert tutor.
Many families have benefited from the schools' YourTutor service in previous years.

The Edge Program at Bunbury Senior High School is a series of extra learning sessions, designed to support Year 12 students in their preparation for their external Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) examinations. The Year 12 syllabus is completely covered during class time but the Edge Program occurs after school hours and/or at weekends. The teacher of the Year 12 class presents the program which aims to better prepare students for their exams.
Homework Club operates on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday after school in the School Library until 4.15pm Tuesday afternoons offers Maths tutoring. There is also a morning session every Friday from 7:30am until 8:30am. This is an opportunity to work in a quiet environment with assistance from various subject teachers. Computers are available for students who wish to access Your Tutor. They will need their login details and password to access this service. We look forward to seeing you there!
Shedworks is an off-site school program that is highly practical and targeted to suit students who are challenged by the traditional academic setting. It is essentially a school for students for whom "normal school is not making sense anymore."
The program commenced in 2009 and was a success story since its inception. While the curriculum has always varied to meet the needs of individual students, in recent years staff have added to the complexity of the program, bringing entrepreneurial aspects that have increased the relevance of the student's work and linked the outcomes more explicitly to the world of work outside the Shedworks setting. The products of that work -furniture, decorator and other items - are all around the school and in many peoples' homes and gardens throughout the South West.
The Shedworks Program focuses on employability skills and making students future-ready. It provides students with life skills beyond the traditional curriculum content, including developing collaboration, problem solving and analytical skills, all underpinned by literacy and numeracy development. The program is a 'living version' of both curriculum innovation and differentiation in education.
Selection to the Shedworks Program is limited and is by application.
The Department of Education is providing the Connect Online Portal to allow for better communication of information to parents about their child’s education.
Connect provides secure online access for parents or responsible persons such as guardians, to teaching and learning information about their children. Parents will be able to communicate easily with teachers and stay informed with their child's learning anywhere, anytime.
Parents will be given their own secure login to Connect through the school. This will be a P-number as a user name and a starting password that can be changed. If you have multiple children you only need one login.
Connect is available on any device with an internet connection.
