Fruit fly restrictions in South Australia
The department of Primary Industries and Regions (PIRSA) has updated its information about fruit fly restrictions in South Australia.
This might change the types of fruit or vegetables you/your child can bring to school.
Our school is located in a red outbreak area.
If you live in the red outbreak area:
You/Your child must not bring any fresh fruit and vegetables on this list to school. This applies even if it has been cut up.
Instead, PIRSA has provided a list of alternative fresh fruit and vegetable options suitable for lunch and breaks.
If you live in the yellow suspension area OR green not impacted area
You/Your child can bring any type of fresh fruit or vegetable to school.
All fresh fruit or vegetables on this list must be eaten and disposed of at our school. These items cannot return home at the end of the day and will be disposed of safely at our school’s grounds.
Grated, dried, frozen, cooked or pureed fruit and vegetables of any kind are acceptable in any area.
We appreciate your cooperation as we help protect South Australia from fruit fly.

Welcome again to Marden Senior College.
It gives me great pleasure to present our outstanding 2020 Year 12 results to the Marden Senior College community.
Congratulations to the 356 students who undertook SACE Stage 2 subjects at Marden Senior College in 2020 for their personally rewarding SACE completion and ATAR achievement outcomes. At a college wide level, the high achievement of students was impressive, with:
- 50% of students achieved an A grade band result (compared to 30% state wide)
- 109 students achieved an A+, 27 of these students were resulted as A+ with merit
As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) we also have a large number of students undertaking VET certificates. This year, 46% of students completed SACE with VET and these do not include students who undertook VET at Marden Senior College but SACE resulted via their home school. VET certificates provide strong employment pathways and remain an important contributor to SACE completion.
These are outstanding results and sincere congratulations to all students and their families. We wish you all the very best as you move into life beyond school.
