Welcome to all parents both new and returning.  2016 promises to be an exciting year, with completion of the building works providing a brand new environment for our children. For some the building project started prior to them starting Year 8, so in this their last year, they will at last enjoy the full benefit.

The P&C has been a strong supporter of the school, its staff and students, and has with the Parent Contributions and a very successful Canteen provided ongoing support for the swimming pool, library resources, revision classes, outdoor furniture to name a few.  Our first meeting which is also the AGM will be held on Monday 15 February at 7.30pm in the Library.

There will be refreshments, so please come along and grab a cuppa and get to know each other. All positions have been declared vacant, we have a couple of expressions of interest already, but if you want to help but not ready to put your hand up then become a P&C Member and help us decide how the money can best be spent.

As we do not actively engage in fundraising at this time, none of the positions are particularly onerous, but we do need them filled to be able to run the P&C and together with other P&C Members decide where the funds are to be spent. Remember this is all about providing the best learning environment for our children. We can all help make that happen .

Do not forget The Sustainable School Shop - it is a great way to find 2nd hand uniforms, text books etc and to sell those unwanted ones. You can search by school for uniforms and Applecross receives a small commission.

Anyone with queries about how the P&C operates, the roles we need to fill, or would like to nominate themselves – they can contact Cath on 0418 914 424 or via

Welcome to the 2016 group of year 7 students who enjoyed two fantastic days of the ‘Big Day In’. Activities included the climbing wall, the inflatable obstacle course, water games for team building, as well as other activities that enabled them to get to know their new classmates and the school and how it operates. The students also attended an interactive performance about school bullying and how to deal with this if it should occur.

Everyone had an enjoyable time before getting down to the serious lessons, which began on Wednesday.


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.
