The school holds a unique place in the history of South Australia. In 2007 the school celebrated 130 years of public education and a commemorative cairn was erected at the entrance off Main Road to honour this achievement. In the same year the redevelopment of the school was officially completed.
The school shares a strong relationship with the township of Willunga sharing the use of its oval and gymnasium and the school is an active participant in the annual Almond Blossom Festival.
I feel very proud of the school, particularly the students and staff, the manner in which they share a strong sense of belonging to a supportive learning community. At Willunga we offer many opportunities for students to develop as well rounded citizens through not only their classroom programs but also by way of personalised learning opportunities, environmental programs, school vegetable garden, school choir, student voice, school celebrations, sporting, arts and academic pursuits.
Willunga is a DECD school and is a member of the Sea and Vines partnerships of Schools
A school zone exists to effectively manage enrolments.
