Principal's Message

Anne White

Welcome back to returning staff and students and welcome to the new staff, students and families who are joining us this year.

I am looking forward to a year full of new experiences and new relationships with students and schools across the Northern Territory.

The best of luck to everyone for 2019.

Ms Anne White

Outstanding 2018 Year 12 Results

Congratulations to all of our 2018 Year 12 students who again, with the guidance of their teachers, have again achieved outstanding results across all subjects.
Highlights of these achievements were:

  1. 100% of our potential completers gained their NT Certificate of Education and Training (NTCET). This is the fourth year in a row that this occurred and above the Northern Territory’s average.

  2. 100% our students gained results at the 'C' grade or better which means that these were able to contribute to their NTCET completion.

  3. Students gained an 'A' grade level in 12 subjects.

Welcome to New Staff

We have a number of new staff joining us this year:

Accessing Moodle Courses

Moodle is the name of our system that holds our online courses.

Students self-enrol into their Moodle courses via a welcome email which includes the Moodle links and ‘keys’ (passwords) to enrol. New students need to complete the Learning By Distance course before their Moodle links are sent.

Dual school teachers can enrol into Moodle courses exactly the same way as students.

If you need help, please contact our coordinators by ringing reception on 8922 2222.

Changed dates for Dependent and Dual Residential School 1

The Dependent and Dual Residential School 1 is changing from Week 5 to Week 7. The new dates are Monday 11 March – Friday 15 March 2019.

The planner which has all of our key dates has been updated. You can download an updated copy below:
