The school is committed to the growth of children’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, aesthetic and creative faculties and to providing programs to increase the resilience of students and staff. Boddington District High School regards all children in its care as individuals, encouraging them to develop their knowledge, understanding and skills to the fullest extent possible. The school works in close partnership with parents, the School Council and the Parents’ and Citizens’ Association and has strong links to community organisations and local businesses, including the Lions Club, CWA, the two adjacent mines, Newmont Boddington Gold and South32 Worsley, and the Shire of Boddington.
