Headstart 2020

Westall Secondary College students will commence their 2020 classes prior to the end of the year. The “roll over” for all Year 8-12 classes will commence on Monday, 2nd December, at which time all students will begin work in the next year level. 

VCE and VCAL Headstart will run for one week, finishing on Friday, 6th December.  Year 8-10 Headstart will run until Friday, 13th December.


 Attendance during the Headstart period is compulsory. Students are required to attend in full school uniform and with all required equipment (with the exception of textbooks), to enable their full participation in classroom activities.


Students will commence course material and work towards their first assessment. They will be issued with holiday homework, which must be completed and submitted to subject teachers on their return to school next year.


Headstart will enable a seamless transition from one year to the next, providing students with a substantial understanding of the requirements in all subjects.

The last day of school for all senior students is Friday 6th December.


The last day of school for all Year 8 to 10 students is Friday 13th December.

Year 9 WSC student is Executive of VicSRC

After a long journey in leadership, I had the privilege to attend the 2018 Victorian Student Representative Council annual Congress as a representative of Westall Secondary College. Congress is a 3-day camp that occurs every year to discuss current issues in schools and basically present our ideas in front of stakeholders and the minister of education, James Merlino. To sum it up after attending congress, I chased every leadership opportunity that came my way. I joined the VicSRC ambassador’s program that brings together students from all around Victoria, to continue discussing issues and ways we can solve these issues as students. I also joined the VicSRC editorial team for the student voice hub, which is a online website forum that connects students to share and have access to resources. After a long journey of chasing opportunities, I nominated myself for a student Executive role at VicSRC. The role of an Executive is to lead the organisation and be the front image and voice for all Victorian students. The executives also take action on what the students of Victoria want and the priorities from congress. I am fortunate to have a supportive family, friends and school peers, who voted for me. I am now super grateful to officially announce that I am one of 15 to make it on the team for 2019-2020 executives. Last week, I had the privilege of attending the VicSRC student voice awards and was officially announced as an executive. I also got to meet the minister of education, James Merlino, who VicSRC will be working closely with. Very proud to say that I will be representing Westall Secondary College.
