Sign up information will come out soon.

RE-ENROLLMENT FOR 2019/2020

Every parent needs to re-enroll their student for next school year. You can re-enroll on PowerSchool ahead of time, or you can come to the Re-Enrollment Fair to re-enroll in person. The Re-Enrollment Fair is held at the same time as Parent-Teacher Conferences, on Wednesday, April 10.

To re-enroll online, the PowerSchool re-enrollment portal will open on March 20 and close on April 17.

Curious about college life in Australia? Want to know what the admissions process is, what entrance exams are accepted, or how much university will cost? University of Newcastle will be at WYIS on Thursday, March 21. They will provide a general information session and be available for individual meetings with families.

CAMPUS HOURS/CAMPUS SAFETY

For the safety of our students and staff, we always aim to know who is on our campus. Please remember, the WYIS campus closes at 4:00 each day. Students and families should exit campus by 4 unless they are participating in an after-school activity or have a pre-arranged event or meeting.

Please join us at the Middle School Science Fair to see the amazing things our students have been creating and inventing.
