Please join us on Wednesday 9th March at 7.30pm in the Performing Arts Centre as Mr Tim Stapleton, Teacher in Charge of Music at Applecross SHS will provide you with an overview of the music program for students studying at Applecross in 2016 followed by a brief performance from current Applecross SHS music students.

Mrs Cath Standing, Convenor of the 2015 Music Support Group will then hold the Applecross SHS Music Support Group AGM for 2016.

The Music Support Group is a volunteer organisation which relies on music parents joining up each year to assist our Music Department staff in providing the best possible musical experience for your child.

We have a great team of people every year forming the Music Support Group, however this year many of our volunteers no longer have children studying music and we are therefore in urgent need of new volunteers to fill the various roles on the Music Support Group Committee.


Further information regarding the evening and roles on the Music Support Group will be sent via email to all music families.



A warm welcome to the new school year, especially to those parents new to the Applecross Senior High School community. We have approximately 300 new students this year, mostly in Year 7. We also have a number of new staff, who we will introduce to you in the coming weeks. The year has begun very smoothly with lots of happy, smiling faces, even at the end of the day.

Assembly on Day 1

On Thursday 8 December, 100 Year 7 to 10 students were invited to celebrate their academic success at a morning tea in the staffroom. These students each scored an A grade in each of English, HASS, Mathematics and Science in Semester 2.

Former student and Head Boy of 1995, Leo Ng, addressed the students. Leo is now lecturing in Physiotherapy at Curtin University. He spoke to the students about his pathway to success, and what success meant to him. Leo also gave to the students the advice he would give to his Year 8 self. This advice was taken in by the students and hopefully will be put into practice in the following years.

The students appreciated the messages provided by Leo, as well as him giving up his time to speak to them, and the sumptuous feast provided.   Congratulations to all students involved.
