 Welcome to Ogilvie High School - from the Principal


Our school Vision is to support development of successful, skilled and innovative young women in creating futures together. It is our Mission to work together to place our learners first to be globally connected and to challenge the boundaries of learning. Our Values of Responsibility, Respect and Resilience guide our decisions in all aspects of life at Ogilvie. They are underpinned by the Department of Education Values of Learning, Excellence, Equity, Respect and Relationships.

We have developed key goals in five areas which will guide our school improvement for 2014 – 2017:  Australian Curriculum, Teaching and Learning, Literacy and Numeracy, the eStrategy and Building a Respectful School.

We are continuing to implement the Australian Curriculum at Ogilvie and students undertake courses in English, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Civics and Citizenship, Health and Physical Education, Languages, The Arts and Technologies. Students learn best when they are engaged, motivated and challenged, and so we are continuously striving to improve our practice to provide the best possible learning outcomes for all students. Teachers are focused on gaining knowledge and skills in teaching practice, content of new syllabuses and in embedding information technology in these courses. As well as this, all teachers are focused on the development of literacy and numeracy skills of students.

In a large community such as Ogilvie, the development of positive relationships is at the heart of all learning and we are committed to building a respectful school at Ogilvie. Our students make a commitment to Being Safe, Being Respectful and Being a Learner, and we work with students every day to meet these commitments.

Ogilvie also provides opportunities for students to participate in a wide variety of extra-curricular activities. These include activities such as sports, choir, band, drama and debating. Similarly, students are offered many leadership opportunities which enable them to gain skills to become a valued, and respected member of our School, making a significant contribution to the School and the broader community.

Students and parents and carers will find very useful information in the handbook and on this page about policies and procedures at the school and we ask that you make a commitment to following all of these during your time at Ogilvie. All students at Ogilvie can set themselves goals to achieve and be the best they can be and I hope that all students at Ogilvie can take on this challenge.
