STAGE 1 ACTIVATING IDENTITIES AND FUTURES CLASSES

Each Year 11 student has been allocated an Activating Identities and Futures (AIF) Class. This subject was previously called the Research Project. As Muirden Senior College has participated in the pilot of AIF and be involved in the renewal of this subject all classes will now follow the new model.  Though this is technically a Stage 2 subject, most Stage One students doing the SACE will undertake their AIF, or Research Project during their Stage One studies. This will free up their subject choices next year as well as teach them how to research, analyse, use and cite sources, all necessary requirements for Stage 2.

 

All students would have already received a timetable and there will be timetables available at the front desk or on our website https://muirden.sa.edu.au/studentstimetable-stage-one/

 

For more information on subjects please visit https://muirden.sa.edu.au/stage-one-subjects/

 

Year 12 timetables will remain the same.

UNIVERSITY EXPO

We will hold our annual University Expo on Monday the 8th and Wednesday the 10th of August. We ask the 3 main universities in Adelaide to come into Muirden and provide our students with information about courses, applications and campus life. It’s a great way for students to get information about whether university is for them and  gets students who are already set on university after school excited about what lies ahead.

COVID19 RESPONSE

Our position on this has not changed. Muirden Senior College will respond immediately to any Government mandates involving student’s education. As such staff are fully aware of their responsibilities involving this virus.

Though it is not mandated It is strongly encouraged that students wear masks at all times while at the college, this will enable them to keep both staff and their fellow students safe, not only from COVID but from all other viruses.

TERM 3 REPORTS

Interim Reports for Stage Two students will be sent out by the end of Week 5, Friday 26th of August 2022. These reports will indicate if students will receive a passing grade. Any students in doubt or failing will have already talked to me and I will be requesting an interview with their parents.

Stage One students will receive a full report at the end of the term.

Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
