Our 2018-2020 Business Plan Diagram
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.
Our school prepares our students for a technological rich world and encourages them to develop the skills to create the world they want to live in. We encourage our students to explore and engage in the world around them with guidance and support from our school community.
The resources we give our students include:
- access to a personal ipad from Kindergarten to Year 4
- a personal MacBook with home usage from Years 5 to 10
- Online learning platforms
- design and technology spaces: textiles, wood and food
- 3D printers, drones and other technology
- flexible learning spaces.
Our school has an exciting annual program of excursions and incursions which expands our students' horizons and learning. Students participate in Country Week annually and have a variety of visiting artist and performers come to the school. During Term 3 we are privileged to have visiting specialists work with students before the Mukinbudin Spring Festival. Every two years we take our upper primary students on camp.
Mukinbudin District High School has a secondary program for Years 7 to12 students. It involves onsite tuition for all Year 7 to10 students and learning through the School of Distance Education for Year 11 and 12 students. Secondary students often participate in cross school activities such as Country Week, Try-a-Trade Sessions, careers days, Emergency Services Cadets and a number of interschool events.
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. We have an active school board and the work of our Parents & Community Association enables us to continually upgrade school facilities and resources.
We take great pride in our inclusive nature and have developed a very strong and active learning support team to assist all students. We have students participating in PEAC programs and specialist intervention programs such as MultiLit and a Values Program - Build Up Zone (BUZ).
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.
