Congratulations – Outstanding ATAR and VET Achievement

Australind Senior High School continues to be one of the most consistently performing senior high schools with another excellent ATAR performance in 2021, supporting regional students to achieve their university aspirations. Australind SHS would like to congratulate students on their ATAR and Vocational Education 2021 achievement. 

We wish to highlight the following achievements:

Jaxon Brown topped the cohort and finished with an ATAR score of 99 which places him in the top 1% of the state and also celebrates a score that places him in an elite group of students achieving an exceptional score. Tyler Cooper also hit a close to perfect ATAR score with 98.50 to finish in the top 1.5% of the state. Both young men are a product of the Australind SHS Mathematics and Philosophy (MaP) program, are great mates and have had a very competitive rivalry that has supported their success. 

Other very notable ATAR cohort performance includes:

 

·        17% of the ATAR cohort finishing in the top 10% of the state (a score in the 90’s), 

·        An additional 27% of the cohort finished with a score in the top 20% of the state (a score in the 80’s) 

·        An additional 17% of the cohort finished in the top 30% of the state  

·        With an overall performance of 86% of the total cohort finishing in the top 40% when compared to the state.

We also wish to acknowledge our Vocational Education and Training (VET) student performance as the initial data demonstrates the successful completion of 148 Certificates (Certificate II and III’s) across many varied meaningful training opportunities which is an outstanding achievement.  Sincere thanks to our staff that deliver training in our Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and to our General Course staff that support our students so well. All of the final VET and General Course performance data is not yet available to us. 

Congratulations to all students for their commitment to their education and achievements.  We wish them well in their journey ahead and recognise their families for their on-going support. I would also like to acknowledge our staff for the journey that they have travelled supporting our remarkable young people.

From The Principal – Term 1 2022

Dear Parents/Carers

As you may be aware, all school staff are required to be double dose vaccinated before Term 1, 2022 starts.

The State Government has issued Education Worker (Restrictions on Access) Directions (No. 3), which are published on wa.gov.au.  These Directions include vaccination requirements for visitors entering school sites.

Students are not required to be vaccinated.

However, if your child is on a work placement, they will need to comply with the industry/business requirements at that workplace.

Parents/carers are not required to be vaccinated when:

  • dropping off or picking up their child from school;
  • volunteering at school on an ad hoc basis;
  • attending an event such as an assembly or parent teacher interview; or
  • entering the school after hours.

‘Ad hoc basis’ means attendance at no more than one education facility no more than once per week.

Parents/carers are required to provide vaccination evidence (single dose vaccinated from
1 January 2022 and double dose vaccinated from 31 January 2022) or exemption when:

  • volunteering at the school more than once a week (this includes volunteering at the school canteen, uniform store or an in-class literacy or numeracy program);
  • working in an unpaid capacity at the school more than once a week; or
  • participating in an endorsed program at the school where parent attendance is required (such as KindiLink).

The following are acceptable forms of evidence of COVID-19 vaccination or exemption:

  • written confirmation of the COVID-19 vaccination issued by the Department of Health;
  • the COVID-19 digital certificate, which shows only your COVID-19 vaccinations. Services Australia has information on how to get your COVID-19 digital certificate;
  • your immunisation history statement, which shows all vaccinations you’ve had. Services Australia has information on how to get your immunisation history statement;
  • an International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate issued by the Commonwealth Government. This shows the COVID-19 vaccination recorded on the Australian Immunisation Register;
  • medical exemption issued by the Australian Immunisation Register; or
  • temporary exemption granted by the WA Chief Health Officer.

We are committed to ensuring our school is a COVID-19 safe space. We have been provided with a clear direction of what we all need to do to keep students, colleagues and our community safe. If you have any queries, please contact 9797 4400.

Thank you for your support.

From The Principal – Remote Learning Preparedness

Dear Parents and Caregivers,

We remind you that we are currently considering our planning for the 2022 school year around the possibility of Western Australian borders opening and the possible impact of COVID-19 in our community.

To enable the continuation of student access and engagement in education, we remind Parents and Caregivers that we are seeking further information from our community about their capacity and needs in accessing some means of remote learning, should our school site need to close during 2022.

To help us to prepare further we would ask that families please complete the Remote Teaching and Learning Continuity Survey by following the link below, if you have not already done so. This is essential to our planning and will allow us to prepare for our approaches and communication to support all students to access their education.

Please use this link to access the Remote Teaching and Learning Continuity Survey.

2021 Leavers Ceremony Ticket Sales

We remind our families of Year 12 students of the 4 tickets per student allocation to the 2021 Leavers Ceremony at the Bunbury Entertainment Centre on Monday 29 November 2021. This allocation is required to ensure all parents/carers of our Class of 2021 are able to purchase tickets to attend the Leavers Ceremony in the first round. The second round of tickets sales – if applicable – will be on sale Friday 5 November 2021.

BREC have advised us several families have purchased tickets over multiple transactions to secure more than the allocated 4 per student. We advise our families that our Class of 2021 is a large cohort of students, and we wish for all of our families to have the opportunity to join with us to celebrate every student’s success and achievement in 2021. Please abide by the limit of 4 tickets per student to ensure our 2021 Leavers Ceremony is enjoyed by all.
