Teaching & Learning Expo

Melrose High School is proud to host its third 21st Century Fluency Expo on the 28 June 2018 from 4.30 - 6.30pm and invites you to come and hear from students and staff.

Teachers of Melrose High School support students to be critical and innovative thinkers, and develop their problem solving skills to be ready for their changing futures. Through the modernising of their pedagogy, they have engaged the 21st Century Fluencies within their teaching practice to support students to take ownership of their learning. This Expo showcases the learning outcomes of students who have engaged in the Fluencies and demonstrates their successes as independent learners.

We look forward to sharing this Expo with you all.

Breakfast Club

Melrose High School Breakfast Club Program starts Thursday 14 June and will provide a healthy breakfast for students two mornings a week, Monday and Thursday between 7.45- 8:50am. It will run out of the Kitchen in room 141, for all students however specifically for those who may otherwise arrive at school hungry. Research shows that one in four children arrive at school not having eaten breakfast, which can affect their learning and attendance. 
The Breakfast Club will be about more than providing a healthy start to the day. It will be a great place for adults to be positive role models for healthy eating and also provide a safe and welcoming environment and a positive start to student’s school days.
