Thank you to everyone in the school community who participated in The Great Shave this year. It was a truly community event with everyone getting behind such a worthy cause.  The Year 12 students who volunteered their luxurious locks, that means you Tully, Andrew, Kieran, George etc and the odd teacher or two, were only part of the whole event.   Students helped by collecting funds and parents, family and staff all contributed to raising such a significant donation in excess of $3,000 to The Greatest Shave organisation. Thank you also to our Chaplain, Mr Andrew Saxton, for coordinating the whole event. I think the images clearly show the support and community spirit displayed on the day. The whole event was a true testimony to the generosity of the Applecross SHS community.

Adam Coppard, Year 12 Co-ordinator

A special congratulations to Kazia has been selected for the senior National team competing in the Spanish Open in May and the FINA World Championships in Budapest in July.

The second round of WADL debating occurred on Wednesday 5th April.  The Year 7 team remains undefeated. This time they were debating that compulsory voting should be banned in Australia. The Year 8 teams also had this topic, but unfortunately did not come away the victors this time. As the Year 9 River Cruise was also on the same night, the Year 9 teams have postponed their debates. The Year 10 team had to forfeit and the Year 11 team won their debate opposing “that Australia should side with China in the South China Sea dispute”.

Special mentions must go to Carolyn Roe, who structured and coordinated the whole team's debate; Alastair Slivkoff, who delivered his first ever debate and Alex Johnstone whose ability to turn a phrase and bring the team's arguments together set a new standard for high-class debating.A big thank you to all team members, teachers who facilitate these debates, and the supportive families. We even had younger siblings taking on the role of chairperson on the night.

Our talented Mathematics students had the opportunity to pit their wits against students from many other schools in the state on two Friday nights in March.  The Upper School team was at Trinity College on March 10 and performed well against very competitive opposition. A big thank you goes to Mr Nesa for coaching these teams before the event and attending the night.

The Year 9 and 10 students travelled to All Saints College on March 17 and took part in their night with 40 other teams. The two teams were equal third halfway through the night but they didn’t manage to hold onto those placings at the end of the competition. They all enjoyed their evening and were exemplary ambassadors for our school, reports Mrs Waddell.  A very big thank you to Ms Thamrin for all the work she put in to preparing and coaching the teams for the night.

The Year 7 and 8 teams competed at Trinity College on March 17.  Our junior teams were outstanding on their night and were a credit to themselves and their coach Mr Hughes.  Both teams placed in the Top 10 of the competition and they highlighted the quality of Mathematics students coming through our school.  Mr Hughes said our students were rewarded with great scores for their dedication to rehearsing for the event and the clever strategies they employed on the night.
