2023 Highlights

HSC Results 2023

Congratulations to the 2023 graduating cohort for some well-deserved results in their HSC. It was another successful year for our PDHPE and CAFS students. CAFS received five Band 6’s and twenty three Band 5’s; PDHPE received one Band 6 and twenty one Band 5’s. These are some exceptional results that reflect the hard work and resilience these students have displayed over the past 12 months.

Child Studies Elective

The Child Studies elective is very popular among our junior students at WBHS. Throughout the semester students have been looking at the unit 'Food and Nutrition in Childhood'. This unit of work explored the different food options available for children with dietary requirements. Students developed quirky recipes meeting the needs of children with food intolerances and allergies by providing them with a hands-on practical experience to ensure all children are catered for, particularly at birthday partyies and other social settings.

PASS Elective

Physical Activity and Sports Studies (PASS) is a very popular elective subject offered in both Stage 4 and Stage 5 by the PDHPE faculty.  In 2023 we had four Year 8 elective classes, four classes in Year 9 elective and five classes in Year 10. These course offers a range of different activities and excursions that provide students with opportunities to engage in activities that are otherwise limited within the school setting.  

In Stage 4 our students focus on Aquatics and Water Safety for one term and then complete a Fitness unit in Term Two. In these units, students visit our local venues, Coughlan’s and Genetics, to enhance the practical experience.

In Stage 5 our Year 9 students engaged in outdoor recreation where students practised the skills of camping, setting up a camp site and cooking. Unfortunately, our students hiking excursion to ‘Berowra Waters’ was cancelled this year due to extreme weather conditions. Year 9 also had the experience of heading to Minmi National Park to complete an Orienteering Excursion.

Year 10 had a local overnight excursion to Glenrock where they experienced canoeing in the lagoon and competed in several team challenges. They also participated in  beach activities and bushwalking. Our PASS electives differ from our traditional PDHPE course where there is a strong focus on Outdoor Education.

Leadership Opportunities

Our VET Sport Coaching course requires students to undertake many coaching opportunities. These students have delivered their expertise sport to several junior classess in a training session. This has allowed VET students to meet the course outcomes tthrough practical experience. As a result many of the Sport Coaching students further assist teaching staff in coordinating, selecting and developing teams for our CHS competitions.

In 2023 Warners Bay High School was approached by one of our primary partner schools to assist with the running of their school carnival. We had fifteen ex Valentine Public School students from Year 10 return to their primary school to assist and run all the novelty events at their annual carnival. Warners Bay Primary School asked for thirty students to assist run their carnival. Student were selected from our year 10 PASS classes. 

Our students were asked to help with the Hunter Regional Primary and High School Gymnastics event held at Glendale. It was reported back that our students displayed a high level of leadership skill and proudly represented Warners Bay High School.

Warners Bay High School was also approached to find student referees for our local school 5-a-side competition at Speers Point for both the Primary and Secondary School Gala Day.
