Deputy Principal's Welcome

Ms Di Goodison DP Junior Secondary

The start of a new year is an exciting time for students and parents, especially as you begin your high school journey. The beginning of high school marks the time when you start to make decisions about your future.  

It's also a time to get excited about learning and enjoy the passion and expertise that specialist teachers bring to their subjects. Yeronga offers a stimulating and rigorous academic program, incorporating a flexible curriculum with greater choice and more intensive learning through semester and year-long electives. 

The growing sense of self and the peer group is also important and students are presented with opportunities to work together in common classes. Teacher teams ensure that the personal growth and wellbeing of the student is not lost in the  academic curriculum.

At Yeronga, our Junior Secondary department is supported by the expertise of a team of staff dedicated to working with students throughout Years 7, 8 & 9.  Based on well-established middle schooling principles, Yeronga offers a welcoming school community and secure environment that promotes independence and awareness of self and others. 

Yeronga also recognises that students enter Year 7 with a wide range of interests, talents and technological competencies. Our innovative 1:1 laptop program empowers students to use technology where appropriate and enables them to own their products and outcomes.​
