Welcome to Yea High School
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the Yea High School website as a current or prospective Yea High School family, student, teacher or other interested party. You will learn about our school from the information contained in these WebPages and we encourage you to contact the school should you wish to gain further information or to visit us.
Yea High School is a co-educational secondary college with an enrolment of 320 students situated 100 kilometres from Melbourne.
The school runs an outreach program for students who were previously not connected with education – the Access Yea Community Education (AYCE) Program. The program has students enrolled at 7 AYCE centres located around the state.
Yea High School is a member of the Big Picture Education Australia Network of schools.
The school is a vibrant learning institution with a progressive attitude to curriculum programs and education provision.
The school is well resourced with an indoor stadium, recently renovated playing fields, home economics area, materials technology and computer graphics studio. In late 2008 the library area was renovated along with student restrooms. The school has recently established two dedicated ‘Learning Age’ areas for Year 9 and 10 students. Our information and communication technology resources are updated annually.
Our school’s facilities have seen significant upgrades in recent years. Mid 2011 saw work completed on our new 21st Century Science Centre as part of the federal government’s economic stimulus BER program.
2012 saw the opening of the school’s Senior Study Centre and the launch of our Student Wellbeing and Careers Hub. In 2013 improvement to facilities include dedicated areas for Year 8 students and a senior student seminar space.
The whole school developed our three keys to supporting a harmonious learning environment ‘Respect’, ‘Trust’ and ‘Acceptance’ these concepts underpin the school’s motto ‘Strive to Excel’.
On 21st March 2015 we look forward to celebrating 60 years of High School Education in Yea and 50 years on our present site. You will be able to keep up to date with plans for our Anniversary celebrations via this website along with social media in the second half of 2013.
