Message from the Principal
Willowridge high schools vision for 2022 is the power of RE.
There are more than 4000 words in the English dictionary that starts with RE. It’s a powerful prefix that allows new energy into your life and to move you forward. RE is two small letters with a big job. Sometimes it means to redo or recharge and other times its to THINK like in restrict or reinvent.
WE want to teach our learners that its never to late. Never to late to redo, retake, revise, reinvision, relearn or rekindle . WE hope that you and your family buy into this ideas of never accepting mediocrity but always reinvent yourself.
Due to covid-19, parents need to make an appointment first, before coming to Willowridge. All documentation must be submitted via email unless stated otherwise.

WELCOME TO WILLOWRIDGE GRADE 8s
Orientation took place on the 10th and 11th of January 2022. We were very excited to meet our Gr8’s.
The Gr8’s arrived wearing their primary school uniform. They were welcomed by our Principal, Mrs Pretorius and our ECL nominee group. After that they were divided into their register classes and started the stations that were set out to follow covid-19 regulations. They did different kinds of ice breakers and war cries. They learned to sing the school song and had a tour of the school to make sure they were ready for the start of school on the Wednesday.
Grade 8 orientation was a learning curve on it's own, how to make an impact in their lives as well as formally introduce them to the culture of Willowridge. From their first day they were nervous we had to formulate games at which they could play to interact with one another and feel more at ease, as well as with us as their ECL. I have no doubt that they’ll be the better future for Willowridge highschool.
WHAT'S UP AT WILLOWRIDGE
The Willowridge Warbler is the school’s annual publication.
Willowridge High School started in 1987 and very soon after its inception, the Willowridge Warbler
was created. A warbler is a small songbird and the inference is that this yearbook is singing the
praises of those it mentions. The book has various categories that cover aspects from an address by
the principal to learners’ achievements on the sports field. A reader can learn about all the various
aspects of the school by glancing through the Warbler.
It's been an exciting start to the year so far with the Inter-house, Academics Honours Evening, Athletics District trials and so much more that our students have been doing and participating in. Here is a preview
