Independent Public School

Morawa Independent School Cluster

The Morawa District High and the WA College of Agriculture – Morawa are an integrated K – 12 learning community.  Both schools maintain their unique personalities but by combining a well structured learning environment for students that is multifaceted, and involves a range of teachers, subjects, community development and support, the Morawa cluster is able to offer diverse opportunities for our students success.

Within the Morawa cluster, students have the opportunity to follow an extensive range of subjects within peaceful, rural, school and farm campuses. Students may transit between campuses, classes, training programs and further education, with ease, maintaining continuity in their career pathway.

 The IPS Boards at both the College and the District High School are keenly aware of the myriad of opportunities that exist in mining, agricultural and business industries throughout the Midwest and Murchison regions.  With this in mind the Morawa cluster provides students with a broad range of career prospects offered through study at TAFE, university and other secondary institutions.

 Collaboration between both schools, which has them pooling a wealth of practical, academic, cultural and industry experience, has Morawa customising education to achieve goals for students.
