Year 7

Year 7 Adviser in 2024

Aaron Madritsch

I grew up in Sydney but have spent the last 5 years teaching out in Western NSW at a school in Broken Hill. I'm a woodwork teacher and have been loving my time so far at Mullumbimby High School.

As the Year 7 Year Adviser, I'm really looking forward to helping Year 7 settle into High School.

In 2024, students in Year 7 are required to bring their own computing device to school every day. 

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 by using the code MHSBYOD24.

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.
