New era to begin for secondary students in Geraldton

Geraldton’s two high schools will start the 2019 school year with new names, uniforms and logos.

Geraldton Senior College will become Geraldton Senior High School, while John Willcock College will become Champion Bay Senior High School.

John Willcock College currently has students from Years 7 to 9. Geraldton Senior College currently has students in Years 10 to 12. Both will expand over the next three years to cater for Years 7 to 12.

Both schools are finalising new uniforms and logos with input from the school community.

WA Premier Mark McGowan visited both schools to welcome the new changes and see some of the school infrastructure upgrades, which will ensure students are learning in modern environments.

The State Government’s $20 million investment at John Willcock College will give students access to a new materials and technology building, performing arts and music building, cafeteria. There will also be a new staff room and the administration and arts buildings will also be refurbished.

Geraldton Senior College students will enjoy upgraded classrooms in the English block and the materials technology, food and textiles studios. The administration block has also been upgraded.

Students at both schools will have access to a full curriculum with pathways leading to VET qualifications, an ATAR or future employment and the Clontarf Academy will continue to run at both schools.
