MALrose Day

Tuesday 23 May 2017 will be MALrose Day at Melrose High School and we will be holding commemorative assembly to celebrate the life and achievements of Malcolm Barlow and recognise his contributions to education. Malcolm was a member of the Melrose community as a teacher, a colleague and a friend. His contributions to the education of children is outstanding. Through his passion for music he engaged students in performance and developed their musical skills. His happy nature, welcoming smile and his innate ability to put people a ease made every person smile and brought laughter to the ears of everyone and he will always be celebrated for these qualities. 

To honour Mal and to showcase his unique and colourful style of dress, students are encouraged to wear brightly coloured clothes and Hawaiian shirts in place of their school uniform for Malrose Day. The gold coin donation will go to help others battling with cancer so that families and communities can come together to celebrate and fund research so that one day we find a cure.

Melrose High School and our PEA schools have worked to identify our Reconciliation Actions within this cluster and some of the future actions and areas that need attention within our school communities.  Reconciliation is an ongoing and positive process which the schools in this cluster have identified as one of the core areas of focus for our school communities.  Please read this Draft RAP [Link] and provide feedback or ideas to  These will be reviewed by a RAP Working Party established across the schools and will include students from different schools within the cluster. 


The Process:

This Community Consultation closes on the 12th of May 2017.  At this point, the Working Party will meet to discuss community feedback and address concerns in the RAP, as needed.  The RAP will then be forwarded to Reconciliation Australia for further review and clarification.  From this feedback, the RAP Working Party will reframe elements of the RAP if required, before sending it for final ratification to Reconciliation Australia.


We look forward to hearing from our parents/carers and wider school community.
