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.
Welcome to the season of Dijilba
The first Spring has sprung August and September
The Noongar Season ‘Djilba’ is represented by the colour pink as it symbolises the growth of wildflowers and plants. This first season of Spring occurs August to September. Depending on which part of WA you are in, timing of the seasons may vary and may be referred to by another name.
Throughout Djilba there will be some very cold and clear days as well as warmer, rainy and windy ones too. You might notice budding djet (flowers) and certain plants such as koola (emu plum) starting to fruit. It’s also a great time to catch some djildjit (fish).
The woodland birds are getting ready for nesting, so watch out for the swooping protective behaviour of the koolbardi (magpie), djidi djidi (willy wag tails) and chuck-a-luck (wattle birds).
Djilba is the beginning of the flowering season, with the bright yellow Acacia’s being some of the first to bloom. Keep an eye out for the flower stalks of the balgas (Grass Trees) too as they start to sprout with the warmer days ahead.
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.
