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.
It is wonderful to see the new shade structure connecting the Art Block to S Block has finally been completed. Student seating has been moved to this area and the handball courts will be relocated.
The completion of a significant refurbishment program at Applecross Senior High School in 2016 means that the school now has a range of contemporary buildings and a learning environment that is truly world class.
Our facilities include a purpose built Art block with exhibition space; a new Science, Library and Technology building; a Performing Arts Centre with retractable seating; a university style auditorium; a new gymnasium and fitness centre and tournament standard tennis courts. The school is set in beautiful landscaped grounds shaped by mature trees creating a pleasant relaxed environment that is conducive to learning and a young adult ethos.
Our goal at Applecross SHS is to encourage students to enjoy and value learning and to achieve their potential. We aim to widen students’ horizons by presenting a diverse, relevant and contemporary curriculum that will prepare them to live and work in the 21st century. The curriculum reflects our desire for students to become responsible and flexible thinkers who will be well prepared for the challenges ahead. The school offers an innovative curriculum with the provision of a range of study options for senior students including a full tertiary entrance program and a wide variety of vocational courses.
A strong culture of pastoral care is a central feature underpinning all aspects of the structure and organisation of Applecross Senior High School. Our school values of Personal Best and Mutual Respect are strongly promoted and embedded in our programs. We work towards building strong interpersonal relationships between students and teachers, founded on trust, respect and responsibility. In building and sustaining positive relationships we create an environment which promotes quality learning.
