Public Holidays

King’s Birthday – Monday the 10th June

YEAR 12 INFORMATION DAY

The Information Day is being held on Tuesday 30th April, beginning with breakfast at the College at 8:30am. This important day out aims to help Year 12 students bond with their cohort as well as relax, but also has a focus on what is to come for the remainder of their Year 12 journey. There will be team building activities, lunch, and an information session on pathways for after school, including applying for University or TAFE for 2025. This is a topic that will become increasingly important to students as the year progresses, and they begin to consider to their life after school.

SCHOOL JUMPERS

Year 12 Class of 2024 school jumpers have now arrived. If you have not collected yours please see the Front Office. Year 11s can also purchase generic Muirden hoodies for $50.

YEAR 11

Year 11s will finish Semester 1 at the end of Week 9, Term 2. Exams will be held in the final week of Term 2, Monday 24th June to Friday 28th June.  They will then have a three week semester break and commence Semester 2 at the beginning of Term 3 on Monday 22nd July. Year 11s will receive their results from the SACE Board in July for all of the subjects they complete in Semester 1.

 

In Semester 2, Year 11 students will have the opportunity to pick new subjects and there will be a Subject Expo held in Term 2. This will allow students to speak to subject teachers and myself so they can make an informed decision about their subject choices. A new timetable and subject selection form will be made available later in the term.

YEAR 12

Year 12s will also finish Semester 1 in Week 9 of Term 2. Trial exams will be held in the final week of Term 2, Monday 24th June to Friday 28th June.  They will then have a three week semester break and commence Semester 2 at the beginning of Term 3 on Monday 22nd July.

END OF SEMESTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS

 

The College will have a three week break at the end of Term 2 (29th June – 21st July inclusive) with Term 3 beginning on 22nd July. This will ensure that all Year 11s commence the second semester at the same time while ensuring that the College’s timetable is consistent with other SACE schools. It will also allow teachers to undergo professional development at the College during the first week of this extended break.
