During the recent holidays 17 Year 10 students from Applecross SHS visited Canberra accompanied by Mr Dickson and Ms Howlett. Each day was packed with visits to a variety of cultural and political attractions including: the National Portrait Gallery, Parliament, the High Court, the Australian Institute of Sport, the National Museum, the Australian Mint and CSIRO Discovery Centre. Students were involved in educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy. The trip culminated with ANZAC Day, starting with a very early rise for the dawn service, a hike down from picturesque Mount Ainsley to attend to commemorative march on ANZAC parade and an afternoon exploring the exhibits in the war memorial’s extensive galleries. The Australian Government provided generous funding to help support this trip through the Parliamentary and Civics Education Rebate program.

Applecross SHS recently hosted a group of students from Torei Fujisawa High School, Japan. The students attended our school from 26th March to 4th April.

The visiting students interacted with our Year 9 to 12 Japanese class students and enjoyed various activities including conversations in both in English and Japanese.

Thank you to AIIU for giving Applecross SHS the opportunity to host this Japanese group and also many thanks to the host families who supported the Languages Learning Area.

Today the whole school community participated in the 2018 ANZAC service.  Special guests included students from the 1958 intake, Mr Nalder MLA and the City  Melville’s Deputy Mayor, Mr Matthew Woodall,

The key players in the service were students from our Year 10 HASS extension class. Their focus was on sacrifice and character, two key strengths of our Anzacs. Items were also performed by the Concert Band 1, the school’s choir performed the National Anthem and there were three additional items performed by, Tess Dwyer-Long, Callum Vukovich and Selena Tan and the third performance was by Hayley Mengel supported by Declan Wong.

 

The Head Boy and Girl accompanied by three of our students representing the various cadet organisations laid the wreath.

According to the score kept by Mr Lilleyman, the female Year 12 students were the unlucky losers 9 to 12 against the female staff basketball team at lunch yesterday for the first clash of the 2018 Principal's Cup. On Thursday the boys get a chance to revenge this loss. Hopefully the male staff will have enough players and will not need to recruit any Year 11's to help make up their numbers.

The Year 9 Students had a great night recently on their annual River Cruise. The night was themed “Dress like its 1958” to celebrate Applecross Senior High School’s 60th Anniversary.
175 Students danced and grooved the night away as the MV Captain Cook made its way along the Swan River on what would prove to be a perfect night.

I would like to thank the 12 staff who joined us on the night and our Year 9 students for being so wonderfully well behaved.

Mr Ellis - Year 9 Coordinator.

Last week the Year 8 HASS Academic Extension class took to the coast as part of their Geography studies. The class was divided into small teams, where each had developed their own Geographical research inquiry into Scarborough Beach. Every group focused on something a little different, addressing social, economic or environmental aspects of the $100 million redevelopment of Scarborough Beach. The young Geographers displayed exceptional field skills in gathering sketches, photographs and primary source data through surveying members of the public. This was a daunting task for some students, but everyone developed a great deal of confidence in the process. This week the students return to the classroom to develop their formal presentation of the results and findings of their inquiry. Nothing like a day at the beach to get smiles on everyone’s faces!
