2020 Staffing Update

In 2013 Mr Gavin Stevens started as Principal at MDHS and has worked with some super people and really enjoyed seeing the students grow and the community come together to grow the school. As you get to know Mr Stevens you know he has a passion for Emergency Services and is active in the local brigade and outside regionally. In 2020 Gavin, his wife Elizabeth (Lizzie) and three daughters will move south to the cooler weather as he takes a role on as Community Emergency Services Co-ordinator. Mr Bruce Gibson who was returning to the Deputy role will be the Principal in Term 1, 2020 as the recruitment process is completed.

Over the last few weeks, the rest of the 2020 recruitment has been finalised and will be in the 2020 School Information booklet.

 

Leeuwin Ocean Adventure

Two of our year 11 students, Jesse Booker and Chanelle Nayda, embarked on their Leeuwin journey today. The pair will be on the Leeuwin II for 6 nights where they will be given the opportunity to:

  • Navigate the ship and take the helm
  • Set and furl the sails
  • Climb the masts and work aloft
  • Stand watch while sailing through the night

What an amazing, once in a lifetime opportunity for them; we hope they have a great experience and embrace the journey ahead!

Parent TV

Introducing ParentTV. Mukinbudin DHS has signed up to this amazing resource so it is FREE for you to use.

MDHS values your children and the great job you do with them as their parents. We all want the best outcomes for our kids and we need to work together to realise these outcomes so our kids feel safe, happy and ready to learn every day. Recently as a school, we have signed up to an online platform called ParentTV.  ParentTV is a website that has hundreds of videos from some of Australia’s and the world’s leading parenting educators. The videos are on topics including sleep, healthy discipline techniques, our kids and technology, bullying, and anxiety, just to name a few.  Most videos are between 2 and 5 minutes long, so they are easy to watch and can be viewed on any computer, tablet or mobile device. Maggie Dent is an advocate for ParentTV and features in many of the videos with practical advice for parents.

To access ParentTV:

Keep us up to Date

  • Reminder to all parents that you need to provide us with a current immunisation record for your child, especially if they have recently had any relevant needles.
  • Please provide us with any updated medical details, medications your child might be taking and phone number or address updates.
  • Please provide your child's teacher or the front office team with details of upcoming absences for appointments or other reasons.  These can be submitted via Connect.

Orienation Days

Kindy 2020 Orientation

On Thursday 28th December, the Kindy/PP class had a visit from nine excited guests. Next year's crop of Kindy students had their Orientation morning. The students and parents were able to experience a little of Kindy/PP class life, so that it isn't so daunting on their first day next year. We look forward to seeing all their bright, excited faces next year!

 

Secondary Orientation Day

Please let the school office know if your child will be attending Secondary schooling at MDHS in 2020. Mukinbudin.DHS@education.wa.edu.au
