“Willetton provides an exceptionally rewarding experience for it students. A great range of opportunities are made available which allows students to get more out of their education the more they put into it. With such a passionate staff and student body, that sentiment is exercised by all to its fullest. Students and staff celebrate their diversity without placing focus on distinction and difference, rather on harmony and integration, the creation of an entirely new song from the combined notes of cultures from all over the world."
