Year 10 Applecross Senior High School students on the Canberra tour attended the ANZAC Day Dawn Service at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra this morning. Students had to be ready to leave the hotel at 3.30 am in order to be there for the start of the service at 4.30 am. Students were respectful throughout the service and had a memorable experience despite the cool temperature and rain fallen during the morning. Thanks to Leonard our bus driver as well as Mrs Crofton and Mr Dickson who helped with this successful six days in Canberra.

Students return to school for the start of Term 2 on Wednesday 26th April 2017.

On Friday the 24th of March, Year 10 students went on an excursion to the Fremantle Army Museum. Throughout Term 1 the students have been learning about World War Two with a particular focus on Australia’s engagement in the war and its impact on the home front. At the Army Museum the students had the opportunity to look at artefacts and exhibits related to what they have learnt about in class and explore the various other conflicts Australia has been involved with.

A great way of getting skills and broadening your experience is via a cadet program. Secondary school students who join a cadet program typically undertake adventurous training, camping, hiking, sporting activities and exercise their leadership potential.

Do you catch public transport to school?  Transperth are making changes to many bus routes as of 23 April 2017. Please check to see if the service you use has been altered.

Here I am pictured with a young fellow that I go and watch play basketball every Saturday for the school where he is a boarder. I consider him to be sort of my grandson as his dad lived at our house so he could complete school. His dad has a successful tourism business and his mum is a long term employee of a big mining company.  I have been a teacher at eight different schools and I am more convinced than ever that sticking at school and trying your best greatly increases your chances of success in life.

This is my sixth year in total at Applecross Senior High School. I have a very conscientious Year 12 Modern History class this year as well as two Year 9 classes who seem to generally like HASS and more inexplicably like the “Worst Joke Wednesday” ritual each week. I am also the Year 10 Coordinator.

Besides school teaching, my key interests are my family and my keen interest in the fortunes of the Fremantle Dockers and the East Fremantle Sharks. I previously was heavily involved in Local Government in the Pilbara over a period of 14 years where I was involved in five successful and two unsuccessful elections. My wife does relief teaching at a High School in the Northern Suburbs as well as being in charge of our home renovation project. My stepson lives and works in Geoje in South Korea. I was lucky enough to visit him last year where he is working on the construction of the world’s biggest vessel, the FLNG Prelude that will eventually arrive at the Browse Basin off the Western Australian coast.

In the school holidays, I will be taking a group of 26 Year 10 students to Canberra and am still involved in the Mock Trials at the school. Next term I will also be involved as Mr Regan’s assistant for the Year 11 and 12 boys AFL team. Applecross is an excellent school with high standards so staff, families and students should feel privileged to part of this school community.

Black Swan invites students in year 10, 11 & 12 to apply for their new work experience program.

Held on 25th & 26th August at the State Theatre Centre of WA, students will spend two days hearing from Artistic Director Clare Watson and other staff and experience three workshops with

our teaching artists. They will complete a theatre tour of the State Theatre Centre of WA and finish by attending a performance of our main stage production, Switzerland by Joanna Murray Smith.
