Australian Business Week is a popular program run in many schools around Australia and allows students to learn through doing. At Melrose High School, Year 10 students spend five days working in teams that run imaginary million-dollar companies.
The ACE Program provides extended learning opportunities to a range of students. These are timetabled classes that are offered within the various KLA’s to students who benefit from extension beyond the normal curriculum. The classes provide enrichment for students who have demonstrated an exceptional talent in a subject area, or are designed to promote engagement in learning for students who would benefit from development of certain skills. These units are often filled by invitation or through an application or audition process.
Students are expected to attend school punctually and regularly. Should a student be absent for any period, a note from a parent or carer must be received. This note should be handed to the Roll Group teacher or the Student Window on the first day the student returns to school. This note may be brought in prior to a known absence. It would be appreciated if parents/carers, who know that their child's absence will be for a significant period, could inform the school either by letter or telephone (6205 7603) or email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
