WDSS aims to develop all students to be as independent and likeable as possible.
The school’s vision is to provide positive learning experiences that allow students to achieve their optimum level of academic, social, emotional and physical independence.
Our approach to education is based on the belief that children learn best in a co-operative environment that is positive, challenging, supportive and non-threatening. Strong and respectful relationships between all members of the school community are encouraged as is the active involvement and participation of students, staff, parents, caregivers, volunteers and the wider school community in all aspects of our school.
Our school’s values are reflected in its motto `Together We Will’. Our school expectations are “Be Learners, Be Safe, Be Respectful” which are explicitly taught to students each day.
