School Events

Willoughby Girls High School complements Academic Learning with events throughout the Year.

Fashion Parade

Annually in Term 3, the Technical and Applied Studies (TAS) faculty holds a fashion parade which is an exciting event in which all students are invited to participate.

Festival of Creative Arts

The Festival of Creative Arts is held during Term 3 each year to celebrate the work produced by Music, Visual Arts and Photographic and Digital Media students. This event comprises an exhibition and an HSC music performance evening.

The Exhibition showcases HSC Visual Arts student's bodies of work, artwork produced by  Years 7 to 11 Visual Arts students and Years 9 and 10 Photographic and Digital Media Students.  Parents and friends are invited to the opening night, which is formally opened by an invited guest speaker.

In conjunction with the exhibition, Year 10 Students participate in a Portrait Prize and Year 9 students participate in a Landscape Prize.

The music performance evening showcases the work of HSC Music 1, Music 2 and Music Extension students.  Parents and friends are also invited to this evening.

Multicultural Day

A Multicultural Day is held every year to celebrate the diversity of the school.  It is an opportunity to recognise and celebrate the many cultural backgrounds of the Willoughby Community.  Multicultural Day is designed to assist all students to feel included and valued, to share knowledge and grow understanding of each other.  At lunchtime there are food stalls offering tastes of different cuisines, games and fun activities from around the world, as well as a national costume competition.

Music Tour

There is a long, proud tradition of musical excellence at Willoughby Girls High School, creating great music and lasting friendships for years to come.  Every second year, students from Years 7 to 11 involved in musical ensembles get the opportunity to go on a music tour.  Tours have included Hong Kong and California, as well as Regional NSW tours to New England and the Central West.  During the tours students participate in workshops and give public performances along the way.

Performing Arts major production (every two years)

The school produces major performing arts productions every second year.  The Music and English departments produce and direct the productions.  Recent productions have included "Into the Woods", "Annie", and "A Midsummer Night's Dream". Auditions are usually held for principal roles in Term 4 prior to the year of performance. Rehearsals are held after school and during term holidays.  All students are invited to audition for the roles.  Information is provided in the daily messages and Newsletters.

Special Assemblies

Special Assemblies enable the whole school to come together to celebrate or learn.  Special Assemblies are generally held in the School Hall and zoomed to additional spaces if required.  Special Assemblies are held for reasons including Anzac Day, Environment Week, NAIDOC Week, and to acknowledge recipients of Silver Awards.
