Term 4 Week 9 News & Announcements

2023 staff shortages

Dear school community, students, parents, carers, and teachers

Due to the state-wide teacher shortages and Lyndale Secondary College being unable to source a suitable French teacher, we are having to make some changes in the delivery of our 2023 LOTE program.  Languages that will be offered to our students will be Mandarin and Japanese.  All our students in years 7 and 8 will be given the opportunity to engage in the equivalent of a year’s study in both of these languages.  Year 9 and 10 students will continue to have the opportunity to study language(s) as part of the College’s elective program.

Year 7 – 9 Get set for 2023 program

Dear students and parents,

In the last two weeks of term, from Mon 5/12, Year 7 to 9 classes will be running on an alternative timetable to facilitiate our Get set for 2023 program. This program will focus on teaching students general cross-curricular skills and specific skills that have been identified as needing strengthening within that cohort. There will also be several wellbeing focused sessions. During these two weeks, classes will be operating on a different timetable that will be published on Compass. Student attendance remains important during these two weeks, as students will be learning skills that are important for success next year.

Year 11 & 12 study periods

Dear parents and carers of students in year 11 & 12 head start,

As part of students regular timetable they will have allocated study periods. These periods will generally be either a Period 1 or a Period 4. Should students have a study period this week we are advising students to come to school from period 2 if they do not have a period 1 class or to go home after period 3 if they do not have a period 4 class.
Students who wish to stay at school to study may do this in either the library or west wing
