Woodvale Student Named in Olympic Squad

YouthSailor-MattWearn.jpgWPS has an enviable record of producing world and Olympic-class athletes. Young Laser-Radial class sailor, Matthew Wearn, looks set to follow in the footsteps of Tina Morgan (taekwondo) and Casey Dellacqua (tennis) after being named in the Australian Olympic sailing squad for Rio. Matt, who is only 19, is currently ranked 7th on the ISAF (International Sailing Federation) table after a string of consistent results at international regattas throughout 2014.

Matt was already a fine sailor before graduating from Woodvale PS in 2007 and his rapid rise as a world-class athlete is testament to hard work and dedication. The WPS community is extremely proud of Matt's achievements and wishes him well on 'the road to Rio".

WPS Student Wins Sandover Medal

Aaron Black.jpgFormer WPS student, Aaron Black, has won the 2014 Sandover medal. In one of the closest 'counts' in recent years, Aaron withstood a late challenge from West Perth team mate, Shane Nelson and Luke Blackwell from Claremont.

Aaron graduated from Woodvale in 2005 as an integral member of a very successful football team. His development through the junior ranks at West Perth and transition to the league team has been impressive. A strong inside midfielder, Aaron is sure to attract the attention of AFL recruiters at the upcoming draft. After 81 WAFL games, he is a ready-made player at the highest level, averaging 30 possessions per match throughout the 2014 home-and-away season.

Woodvale Students Receive WACE Awards

Former Woodvale Primary School students have continued to excel in the 2012 Curriculum and Standards Authority Awards. 2007 graduates James Le and Jessica Francis both received Certificates of Commendation, awarded to students who obtained at least 20 grades of "A" in WACE course units. James, who was Dux of Woodvale Primary School in 2007, achieved an ATAR score of 99.45, placing him in an elite group of graduating students. He plans to pursue a career in medicine. 

Jessica will commence a double-major in Human Biology and Physiology at the University of Western Australia. Jess acknowledged that hard work was the key to success and a disciplined approach to study was essential. Maintaining a sensible balance was also important, particularly the value of a regular social life and participation in sport and other extracurricular activities.

Woodvale Secondary College also produced its second VET Beazley Medallist, remarkably in consecutive years. The recent achievements of former Woodvale Primary School student, Nicole Kerr (2011) and Madisen Scott (2012) in winning the Beazley Medal, have enhanced the reputation of the Woodvale Learning Community.

Mitchell Debuts for Young Socceroos

Former Woodvale soccer captain. Mitchell Oxborrow, has made his debut for the Australian U20 team, the Young Socceroos. Michell, who is contracted to the Newcastle Jets, played an influential midlfield role in recent games against Portugal. At 17 years of age, Mitchell is the youngest member of the elite youth squad. In 2011, he also represented Australia in the U17 World Championships in Mexico. Given the highly competitive nature of the world game, Mitchell's achievements are very impressive.
