Emily LangtryYear 7 Adviser

I have been working as a Mathematics teacher at Mullumbimby High for the past seven years. Since 2016 I have also been the Student Representative Council (SRC) Coordinator. In 2018 I commenced my new role as the Year Advisor for the 2019 Year 7 cohort.

In my mathematics teaching I aim to find a connection with every student so they know I care about their learning and I can assist make mathematics relevant to them. I ensure they understand fundamental concepts before moving on to more challenging concepts and encourage regular practice.

In my role as year adviser I’m looking forward to facilitating a positive high school experience for my cohort. I have already met so many enthusiastic children and families who want to support the school and the education process. I have plenty of ideas to implement over the next six years to support our 2019 Year 7s.

Please feel free to contact me regarding any welfare matters or concerns you’d like to discuss. My email address is emily.langtry@det.nsw.edu.au

Starting High School

Starting high school is a time of new experiences as your child adjusts to a new school, makes new friends and gets used to having different teachers and classrooms for each subject. These resources can help with the transition:

Getting Involved

There are great opportunities for students to participate in extra-curricular activities (link to extra-curricular section). These include competitions, exhibitions, sport, performances and special events. Student leadership programs (link to SRC etc) provide many activities that broaden your child’s experience at school.

National Test

Year 7 students sit the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) test in May. There are five tests covering numeracy, reading, writing, spelling, punctuation and grammar. Year 7 is the first time students use a calculator in one of the numeracy tests.

The results of the NAPLAN test can help teachers and parents meet the individual literacy and numeracy needs of students. You will receive a report of your child’s achievement in the NAPLAN test.
