Although we had no winners this year, the History Association of Western Australia appreciates the efforts of Mrs Campbell, Mr Lloyd, the Arts Department and especially our Canteen Manager Mrs Millar in making the day a success. Two members of our Year 10 Academic Extension class also helped on the day. Lilli Coulson, a Year 10 Student Councillor and Renee Keating, who was a finalist last year, had the chance to meet the Honorable Samantha Rowe MLC who was representing the Education Minister at the awards.

On Saturday 13th October 2018, twenty-one French students accompanied by their two teachers, Ms Aurore Boulogne and Ms Christelle Roussel, arrived in Perth. The host families were all waiting eagerly for them at the airport and the AXSHS Welcome Team made quite an impression.

The French visitors participated in various activities on their first day at school. They tried Vegemite and crackers, beef jerky, lamingtons and some Tim Tams. Their reactions were hilarious, however they were keen to try them all and give feedback on the food they tried. Afterwards they played games and had conversations in English with the Year 8 French class students. The visitors also did a school tour while others had conversations in French with the Year 7 students. They also attended a welcome morning tea and watched an Australian movie on the same day.

Their two week program comprises of a variety of classes (drama, dance, fitness & French) and several excursions. The French visitors are immersing themselves in the Australian lifestyle and embracing the idea of staying with an Australian family over the next two weeks to discover Australian school life.

Sarah Parry from the HASS Year 9 Academic Extension class was recently presented with a book by the Honourable Pierre Yang MLC for the South Metropolitan Region at a Year 9 assembly on behalf of the Premier as a result of her short story entry in the Premier’s Student Competition. The theme of the competition was the celebrating the end of the Centenary of Anzac. At the same assembly, Mr Yang acknowledged another Year 9 HASS Academic Extension student, Ria Cutt, who has reached the final three in the State in a poetry based competition run by the Western Australian Parliament. Ria has been invited to lunch at Parliament House along with three of her classmates on November 2nd where the overall winner will be announced. She was completing a violin exam at the time of the assembly but Mr Yang is looking forward to meeting her at Parliament House to offer his congratulations in person. Well done to both students.



Alicia Ross-Adams (Year 9) and Hannah Cumming (Year 7) have been selected to take part in Girls Takeover Parliament this International Day of the Girl. On Thursday the 11th of October, Alicia will be taking over from Stephen Price as Member for Forrestfield, and Hannah will be taking over from Lisa O'Malley as Member for Bicton.

Girls Takeover Parliament WA is an innovative program that pairs girls with parliamentarians to takeover their office responsibilities for the day. The program aims to ensure girls voices and opinions are heard. Girls Takeover Parliament seeks to change the existing structures that continue to hold women and girls back, while encouraging young women to pursue leadership opportunities and exposing leaders to fresh perspectives.

We are sure that they will be an exceptional representative for Applecross Senior High School, Girl Guides WA, and girls all over WA. Congratulations to both girls on this wonderful opportunity.
