The ATAR is the ranking system used by all universities in Australia to assign students to various courses. At Lyndale Secondary College our objective is to provide students with the means to achieving the greatest ATAR in order to have the widest array of tertiary courses from which to choose.
Academically, 2013 produced a large number of outstanding Study Scores for students of the College enabling them to embark on further tertiary studies at Universities throughout Australia and beyond.
Of the 141 students that applied for University or TAFE entry, 89.36% received a first round offer. Of these students, 95 (67.4%) received a University offer.
A classic summer day provided the perfect weather for a classic school event, the Swimming sports carnival. From the start, colourful costumes were evident, cameras and videos whirred into action, houses demonstrated their cheering prowess and, most importantly, students were competing, enjoying themselves, as well as basking in the atmosphere that only a Lyndale carnival can provide.
Make sure you catch the video below that highlights the atmosphere of the day. Stay tuned for upcoming house events.
This year will hopefully have some big surprises! Mr Noonan
As part of our commitment to 21st Century Learning, the College is implementing a program to ensure every student has access to a netbook to support their learning and achievement both during the school day and at home. To ensure continuity of access and effective use, the program will require every student to own their own device.
To assist families and to ensure program equity the College will be moving to a designated "Bring Your Own Device" program from 2015. Families are encouraged to take the opportunity to purchase the designated devices during 2014.
Punctuality: All students are expected to arrive between 8.30 – 8.40am in the mornings so that instruction can start quickly. Form assembly takes place every morning between 8:40 - 8:45am Arrivals after that need to sign in at their respective sub school office before going to class.
Student Absence: We appreciate notification of student absence. We are still required to have a written note explaining the absence when your child has returned to school for the official records.
First Aider: The school First Aider (Donna McGrath and Helen Pasalskyj) is on duty each day from 8:40am till 3.00pm.
Medication: Parents wanting the school to administer any medication to students need to supply, written authority and instructions to the school office.
Bikes and Scooters: Students who ride their bikes or scooters inside the school grounds can pose a risk to others so please walk and remember to always wear a helmet.
Car Parking: As our student population is very high so is the potential number of cars dropping off and picking up children. Please be considerate of our neighbours and don’t park across their driveways. We strongly recommend you park your car in the designated parking areas of school grounds and walk safely to school using the appropriate manned school crossings. We do use local parking officers to remind parents of their obligations and maintain our excellent safety record.
