Yolla District High School is a Kinder to Gr 10 school, offering a rich and engaging learning program, in one of Tasmania's most scenic and beautiful settings.  We are a Launching into Learning school, welcoming families with babies and children pre-school age.
 
Our 240 students participate in engaging learning programs both inside and outside of the classroom. 2013 sees our school as a "Raising the Bar" school, with an explicit focus on Literacy and Numeracy. This focus is complemented with the implementation of the Australian Curriculum, with English, Mathematics, Science and History all timetabled into the regular week, from Prep to Grade 10. Enhancing our students' learning is our provision of wonderful Physical Education, Art, and Music programs. We also offer option subjects to our secondary students including MDT, Food Studies, Home Economics, Speech and Drama, Film Production, Exploring Yolla, Child Studies, Cooking with Children, Book Club,  Fit Club and Top Gear Maths. 
 
Our learning programs make the most of this, our beautiful rural setting with a wonderful Agriculture program that enhances our students' learning, from Kinder to Grade 10. The school's 17 hectare farm is intrinsic to our learning environment, with our students learning about growing fruit and vegetables, crops, cattle, sheep, poultry, horticulture and aquaculture.  Yolla District High also boasts a very supportive and successful Cattle Handling Team.
 
We also have a very successful Work Skills program, that has come about due to a wonderful partnership with our Waratah-Wynyard Council and assisted financially by NAB grant funding. A team of grade 8 and 9 students work together in our community to repair, build and maintain footpaths, gardens, cemeteries whilst learning about OH&S requirements and employer expectations.  
 
Our school year is also complemented with special events, some planned for by our teachers and others as a result of ideas from our students themselves. We have a very active student council, with representatives from grade 3 to grade 10 who oversee many wonderful projects including our Friday "Charity Day."  Our classes donate their spare coins that are collected every Friday, and then send these on to others in our local and wider community who may be doing it tough. Earlier this year, money was sent to the Dunalley community following the horrific bushfires.
 
We enjoy athletic and swimming carnivals, cross country events, out of uniform days, book parades and much more. We have  Primary and Early Childhood choirs who love Music and singing together. Our grade 9 Speech and Drama group were placed first in the recent Burnie Eisteddfod.
 
These many learning programs all take place in wonderful facilities, with a dedicated, professional and friendly staff team.
 
Our school is embraced by the Yolla community, and the relationship we share with our community is a positive and respectful one. Our students interact with the wider community in a number of ways, and our doors are always open to our parents, friends and community members. We believe our community are our partners, and together we will develop  caring citizens who will make positive contributions in future years.
 
 
We welcome all families, existing and new to our school and look forward to working together to provide your children with relevant, engaging learning programs. We want each of our students to love learning and work towards reaching their potential.
