Arianne Greenhouse

Dear Year Seven,

Firstly, I want to cordially welcome all of you to Mullumbimby High School on behalf of all the staff and myself. I really hope you enjoy your time at our school this year and the years to come.

I look forward to working with each student and their families to support their educational journeys here at MHS in 2022.

I hope that this new stage in your life is going to be full of excellent memories. You will learn great values and skills to become competent members of our society.

Please feel free to contact me regarding any wellbeing concerns or questions you may have. My email address is arianne.greenhouse2@det.nsw.edu.au

BYOD

In 2022, students in Year 7 are required to bring their own computing device to school every day. 

The school operates a long-term loan program for students unable to purchase a device. Long-term loans can be organised through the front-office and are to be returned at the end of each school term for maintenance.

Short-term loans are also available for students if they have forgotten their laptop or there is some other issue. It is the requirement of the student to borrow a laptop for the day from the front office before school starts and return it at the end of the day.

More information about BYOD at MHS can be found here.
You can access our JB Hi-Fi purchasing portal at https://www.jbeducation.com.au/byod by using the code MullumbimbyHS.

Starting High School

Starting high school is a time of new experiences as your child adjusts to a new school, makes new friends and gets used to having different teachers and classrooms for each subject. These resources can help with the transition:

Getting Involved

There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities (link to extra-curricular section). These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student leadership programs (link to SRC etc) provide many activities that broaden your child’s experience at school.

National Test

Year 7 students sit the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in May. There are five tests covering numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. Year 7 is the first time students use a calculator in one of the numeracy tests.

The results of the NAPLAN test can help teachers and parents meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a report of your child’s achievement in the NAPLAN test.
