School valuesEdit

Wadalba Community School has three core values: Respect, Responsibility and Excellence.[3] The school believes that these values go hand in hand. "When you show respect, you are showing responsibility which leads to excellence."

HistoryEdit

The first principal since the opening of the school in the year 2000 was Principal Lance Godwin, who played a vital role in establishing the school in the early years. Due to unforeseen delays, the first students that entered through the school began their year 7 studies in demountables behind Wyong High School. Only half of the school was developed when the students moved from Wyong High to the newly built facilities.
