Mukinbudin District High School was established in 1923 and moved to its current site in 1925. In 1972 the School was upgraded to a District High School. In 2015 the School will become an Independent Public School with a parent, staff and community orientated Board which has four Business Goals based around ‘Excellence’ in all areas of operation but focussed on ‘Successful Students’;
- Excellence in Teaching, Learning and Leadership
- Partnering for Excellence
- Sustaining Excellence
- Creating Excellent Citizens
Mukinbudin District High School aims to ensure a strongly supportive learning environment which provides all students with opportunities to achieve their personal best and develop into independent learners, positive individuals and responsible citizens. One way we do this is our innovative use of technology. Our school has Wi-Fi access all over the site that supports the 60+ iPads, 8 Interactive Whiteboards, 20 + desktop and 8+ laptop computers on our site. Our teachers engage in mediums such as Twitter, YouTube and other web based resources to extend and develop cutting edge and exciting learning programs.
Mukinbudin has launched a Secondary Program incorporating Years 7-12 students that involves onsite tuition for all Year 7-10 students. Our Year 11 + 12’s work from SIDE but we ensure they have as many opportunities as possible. Secondary students often participate in a cross school activities such as Country Week, Try-a-Trade Sessions and Interschool Swimming Carnivals.
Teaching staff at the school are well supported by parents and a community that strongly values education. With the support of the P&C the School continues to upgrade its facilities and resources. Together with the community and some great grant writing we raised tens of thousands of dollars for our students in 2014.
The School has an exciting annual program of excursions and incursions which expands our student's horizons and learning. Camps may be provided depending upon the number of students at any given time and the teachers’ ability to offer camps. Along with Country Week Annually and Upper Primary Camp every 2 years we have a variety of visiting artist and performers come to the school. During Term 3 we are privileged to have many visiting specialists work with students before the Mukinbudin Spring Festival.
Mukinbudin District High School continues to work towards ongoing improvement and demands the highest possible results from its students. The dedicated staff (all) commit long hours to the education of the students and actively pursue professional development opportunities for continuous self-improvement. The school takes great pride in its inclusive nature and has developed a very strong and active learning support team to assist all students. We have students participating in PEAC programs, Specialist intervention programs such as Alpha to Omega, a School Chaplain, Individualised Education Plans and a Whole Staff Pastoral Care focus.
Our School is a part of the Eastern Wheatbelt Education Network (EWEN) which is made up of Southern Cross DHS, Moorine Rock PS, Nungarin PS, Kellerberrin DHS, Bruce Rock DHS and Merredin College. This collaboration allows us to use our collective buying power to access training and resources locally at best cost. This partnership also gives us a diverse way to meet the needs of our students through shared learning goals, learning teams across schools and whole of network strategies.
