Welcome to Minlaton District School
Minlaton District School became R-12 in 1991 for students of the surrounding communities of Minlaton, Brentwood and Hardwicke Bay, and feeder
schools at Stansbury, Curramulka and Port Vincent. Students are co-operative and reflect supportive family backgrounds and an active
community. The R-10 curriculum is based on the SA curriculum framework. A comprehensive
range of South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE) Stage 1 & 2 subjects is offered for
Year 11-13 students.
The Middle and Secondary schools operate on a 5-day, six
lesson timetable. A well established
work education program commences at Year 10 at SACE Stage 1 level. 'Doorways to Construction' and 'Doorways to Construction Plus' provide alternative learning pathways for students in years
10-12. A significant number of students (Years 10-12) is involved in school-based apprenticeships
in the areas of agriculture, tourism, office administration, retail, automotive, hairdressing, seafood operations and IT. The school is serviced by five school buses that transport approximately 60 percent of the student population.
