Life So Far

Welcome to Mindarie Senior College.

Research (and common sense) tells us that a feeling of belonging and connection is essential to the social, emotional and academic well-being of teenage students.  Your insights, opinions and detailed knowledge of your child will provide us with a vital resource to enable a smooth transition to Mindarie Senior College and a happy, productive career with us.

You can access the ‘Life So Far’ form via the link below and complete it electronically. Please “save as”, using the student name for the file name. If you do not have the free Adobe Reader software to open PDFs you can safely download it from the following link:
