Principal’s message
David Tyson, Principal
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Westall Secondary College’s students, teachers and parents make up a culturally diverse learning community.  Respect and trust are key elements of our community.  Our aim is to ensure our students have the skills and knowledge to achieve their personal best.
 
Our teachers strive to build strong positive relationships with our students and are focused on developing and implementing programs that meet our students' diverse needs.
 
I would invite you to visit the College and to come for a tour with one of our Senior staff.  A walk around our College will give you a sense of what we are striving to achieve.
I look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Westall Secondary College - 2nd Place Winners

The MIT Challenge is a competition for teams of four senior students that is designed to give students a taste of real world consulting. The competition engages students in all aspects of consulting: meeting the client and understanding the client's problem, working together as a team, discussing ideas, planning a solution strategy, communicating ideas to the client in both written and oral presentations.The format of the competition is: an industry representative (“the client”) presents a real world problem for the teams (“the consultants”) to establish a solution approach within 2 hours 30 minutes. The teams submit a written report of their proposed solution. The 5 top ranked teams give a 5-minute talk about their findings.
 Congratulations to our students for their outstanding effort - 2nd Place MIT CHALLENGE

VISIT BY MIN KO NAING

It is important to expose young people to positive role-models and so it was a wonderful opportunity for our students to meet Min Ko Naing.  Min Ko Naing is the second-in-charge of the Pro-Democracy movement in Burma and second only to world renowned Aung San Suu Kyi. During his visit to Westall Min Ko Naing showed a vision for creating a Democratic Burma by peaceful means.  His views strongly reflected our own College Values that focus on “respect for others”. Min Ko Naing highlighted a peaceful approach to the road to change and urged our students to embrace learning and stay in education for as long as they could. MIN KO NAING
