The School Day

Roll Group

When students arrive at Melrose High School they are allocated a Roll Group. Students are expected to arrive punctually for the commencement of Roll Groups at 8:55am. Rolls are marked and daily announcements are read out to students during this time. Students can give the Roll Group teacher any notes from parents. The absentee list for the day is generated from Roll Group attendance.

The Timetable

The school operates a ten-day timetable of five lessons per day, repeated each fortnight. All lessons (lines) are of equal time in the timetable over the fortnight.   Students study seven subjects per semester and the lines are labelled A, B, C, D, E, F and G with subjects being allocated to a whole line for a semester. In Years 7 and 8, six subjects are allocated a whole line each semester with the Arts and Technology sharing a line in a two-year rotation. A time block is allocated on Tuesday (Week A TB 1) as a meeting time with students, either as a whole school assembly or in year groups. The timetable grid operates as follows:
