Science at Woodville High School

Old Scholars



Woodville High School has a long tradition of producing proud scholars in a proud community. Our WHS Old Scholars Association plays an important role in maintaining the current school’s links to this tradition.

The Old Scholars Association was reformed in 1991 after the celebration of the school’s 75th anniversary in 1990. The Association has approximately 350 members who live in South Australia, other states and territories and overseas. These old scholars, past teachers and leaders of Woodville High School receive updates about association events and honours awarded to past scholars through regular newsletters.

We have an active social calendar which provides opportunities for old scholars to renew and maintain their school friendships and keep links with their old school. Annually, the Old Scholars hold a dinner in August at which dinner participants enjoy hearing an address by a past scholar who has achieved acclaim in their chosen field of career or community service. 

Other annual events include a Principal’s tour of the school, luncheons, theatre visits and other forms of social activities.

The Association provides:

  • An historical perspective for current students and leadership team
  • Financial support for programs in the school
  • Academic prizes for the school’s annual Speech Night in November
  • Sponsorship of the Special Interest Music Centre
