Excellence in Teaching Learning Leadership
Educating students from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 12
Mukinbudin District High School is an Independent Public School with excellence at the core of everything we do. Providing education since 1923, we work with parents and community to ensure a supportive learning environment for all our students.
We are committed to giving them opportunities to achieve their personal best and develop into independent learners, positive individuals and responsible citizens.
Bunuru (February - March)
The Noongar Season ‘Bunuru’ is represented by the colour orange and is the hottest time of the year.
Bunuru is the hottest time of the year with little to no rain. Hot easterly winds continue with a cooling sea breeze most afternoons – if you’re close to the coast.
Traditionally this was, and still is, a great time for living and fishing by the coast, rivers and estuaries. Because of this, freshwater foods and seafood made up major parts of the Noongar people’s diet during Bunuru.
Bunuru is also a time of the white flowers with lots of white flowering gums in full bloom, including jarrah, marri and ghost gums.
Another striking flower to look out for is the female zamia (Macrozamia riedlei). Being much larger than its male counterpart, the huge cones emerge from the centre of the plant with masses of a cotton wool like substance.
As the hot and dry weather continues, the seed cones change from green to bright red, indicating they’re ripening and becoming more attractive to animals, particularly the emu, that will eat the toxic fleshy outer layer.
Our school is a part of the Eastern Wheatbelt Education Network (EWEN) which is made up of Southern Cross, Kellerberrin and Bruce Rock district high schools; Moorine Rock and Nungarin primary schools; and Merredin College. This collaboration allows us to meet the needs of our students through shared learning, working across schools and developing whole of network strategies.
Students have dedicated teachers and support staff who strive to offer the best possible education for all children in Mukinbudin and surrounding farms. They work towards ongoing improvement and demand the highest possible results from their students. They are well supported by parents and a community that strongly values education.
