Orientation Day is for students who have been accepted into the school for Year 7 in 2017. If you are unable to attend please contact the school so that any important information is forwarded to you.
Any prospective parents/carers who have not enrolled their child should contact the Front Office as soon as possible to begin the enrolment process.
The day will begin at 9am in the Lyneham Performing Art Centre (LPAC) with a short opening assembly. Parents/Carers are welcome to attend this assembly. After this, students will go through a mini timetable to give them a chance to become familiar with Lyneham High School. Students will also receive information about Year 7 Camp, stationery packs, voluntary contributions payments, Year 7 Camp deposit etc. Students need to bring something to eat for recess and a sausage sizzle lunch will be provided. Please let us know of any dietary requirements when you RSVP. The day will conclude at 2.45pm and parents/carers who are collecting their children should pick them up from the Lyneham Performing Arts Centre (LPAC).
A note about parking: Please do not park in the staff car park when dropping off or collecting your child as this causes congestion and puts members of the community at risk. It is advised that families park elsewhere and walk to the school.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Front Office on 6205 6399 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to streamline the elective selection process for years 7, 8, and 9, Lyneham High School uses an online selection system called Subject Selection Online (SSO). To offer a timetable which best meets the needs of the students and the school students selected the 3 elective subjects that most interest them for next year. They made these selections during week 7 of term 3. This information will be used to create the 2017 timetable. Early in term 4, parents/carers will have access to SSO and will be able to make final elective selections for each line and effectively enrol in classes for their child.
In Year 8 2017 all students must study English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences (HaSS), Health and Physical Education, and a Language (for either 1 or 2 semesters). In addition, students select from a range of electives in the areas of Arts, Technology, Music, Outdoor Education and Agriculture. Click here for a link to the year 8 elective booklet.
In Years 9 and 10 2017 all students must study English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences (HaSS), and Health and Physical Education. In addition to these subjects, each student is required to complete a total of four elective semester units (two each semester). A wide range of elective subjects are offered. All units studied, both core and elective, in years 9 and 10, are recorded on the student's Year 10 Certificate. Click here for a link to the years 9 and 10 elective booklet.

In 2016 the Homework Club is operating on Monday and Thursday afternoons from 3.15pm to 4.15pm during term time. Please note - these are different days to those offered in 2015.
