2020 ATAR RESULTS

EXCEPTIONAL 2020 ATAR RESULTS
“Australind Senior High School is proud to congratulate the class of 2020 for their outstanding ATAR performance.
The School Median ATAR this year was 79.25 and reflects our continued excellent school performance of the past 2 years, that we expect will again place us in the top 50 performing schools.
We will share more specific detail in the coming weeks, but at first glance 23% of our ATAR students turned in scores above 90 – finishing in the top 10% – and an exceptional 80% of the cohort finished in the top 30% of the state.
Congratulations to the students for their commitment in an unsettling year, having to focus on their studies as well as the impact of school closures, remote learning and other significant interruptions and concerns.
We congratulate our 2020 cohort on their continued effort to achieve a high ATAR standard, as although many students were successful in early university offers, this did not waiver their commitment in striving to achieve exceptional scores.
I also wish to acknowledge our incredible staff for the journey they have travelled aiding and encouraging our remarkable young people, and to all of our families for their support in a unique and difficult year of learning.
A job well done and we look forward to hearing about our students reaping the magnificent rewards of all their hard work.
The staff at Australind Senior High School would like to wish our students, parents and caregivers a safe and enjoyable Christmas break and a prosperous New Year.
We wish to acknowledge the support that we have had from our community during this complex year. We look forward to working closely with you again in 2021.”

Year 12 Leavers Ceremony

As previously communicated on 14th September 2020, this event will fall in the week commencing Monday 30th November 2020.  It is most likely that the date will be adjusted to Wednesday 2nd December, but this again will be confirmed.  The event will commence at the earlier time of 5:30/ 6:00pm and conducted within a shorter time frame.  We are planning to hold the event on the school front lawn area as an open-air event.  Invitation will be forward by email, there will be a small charge applied and tickets may be purchased online. The event will be conducted based on the level of restrictions in place at that time.  We are presently awaiting the outcome of Phase 4 restrictions moving to Phase 5, expected to be announced by the State Government on 24 October 2020, before confirming any further information on the 2020 Year 12 Leavers Ceremony. Please monitor Connect, our website and Facebook page to be kept up to date with the most recent information, and encourage others to do so. Thank you for your patience during this time.

Calendar Reminders

A reminder to the school community on important calendar dates for the remainder of Term 3 and Term 4:

  • FRIDAY 21st AUGUST – School Development Day – students do not attend this day. This is an additional day provided to the school by the Director General, due to the disruption to school processes during COVID-19.
  • MONDAY 12th OCTOBER – Term 4 Commences – all students return to school (including Year 12 students)
  • FRIDAY 30th OCTOBER – School Development Day – students do not attend this day

From the Principal – Welcome to Term 3

Dear parents, guardians and families of our ASHS community,

Welcome back to term 3 which we hope will not hold any surprises. I do hope that families have had the opportunity to enjoy a school holiday break while exercising the freedom that we are all experiencing in our Phase 4 eased restrictions.

At the end of Term 2 the State Government gave schools instructions that enable us to move to more flexibility in our school activities while still considering the new normal continuing precaution of good hygiene practices and sensible physical distancing. I have no doubt that we will continue to evolve however cautiously forward in the coming months.

The Minister has outlined that; we have some way to go before schools are completely back to business as usual, while continuing to follow the very best health advice.

I would like to acknowledge our parents and families for the good will that they have shown us when processes are not always running smoothly. Thank you for your encouragement and support. I would also like to thank all staff for their continued commitment, flexibility and resilience to the many twists and turns that have been actioned. We continue to be in good shape and it is a good time to be a Western Australian! We are also fortunate to be in a profession that has been able to support students and our broader community in a very complex time.

When students return to school on Tuesday 21st July, we will be encouraging students to continue with our term 2 hygiene and social distancing practices.  These will be outlined to students on Tuesday morning and will not come as any surprise as they are our new normal in these times.

At a time when our world is changing we do need to look forward to some optimism. Our state is in a reasonable position and it would appear that there is a Federal Government’s investment in Future employment. I will not go into a lot of detail but the current situation will create some different employment opportunities for students both via university studies with a reduction in course costs for shortage and focus areas, and opens many doors in the area of Vocational Education and Training.  This is a very important message for our communities and students as it is a point of optimism in a time where there remains some uncertainty.  We will certainly provide details as they become available and hope to have this discussion with students and parents in the near future.

I trust that we may finally have a term that runs on a more even keel, as we continue to work through complex challenges in partnership, as strong communities do.

From the Principal – Update #2

Dear Parents/Carers,

I want to thank you all for your support in what was one of the most unusual starts to a school term we have ever seen.  Together, we have been able to make the best of this situation and ensure your child’s safety and continuity of learning.

Today, the State Government announced changes to education based on a review of current arrangements and updated health advice. 

As of Monday, 18 May 2020 all students are expected to attend school, except for those students medically referred to learn from home.

This means students are either:

·       at school;

·       have a medical referral to learn from home; or

·       recorded as absent if they do not attend.

Over the last three weeks we have seen 84% of our students return to school, which has been fantastic. 

Current health advice states that schools remain safe for staff and students and should remain open.  We want to make sure all children get the best education possible, which is why attending school is so important.  We are here to make sure all children are learning and there’s no doubt, schools are the best place for them to learn.

For parents with medical advice that their child should not attend school, we will work with you in partnership with the School of Special Educational Needs: Medical and Mental Health to support your child’s learning from home.  If you feel your child is in this category, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will work together on next steps.

If your child does not attend school without a medical reason, they will be marked as absent and will not be provided a learning program. 

The extra cleaning and hygiene practices implemented at the start of Term 2 will continue and as part of the social distancing measures, we continue to ask parents/carers to drop children at the school gate and not enter the school grounds. 

The State Government will continue to make decisions based on the best health advice. Thank you for your continued support as we move forward.

If you have any questions please contact the school on australind.shs@education.wa.edu.au or 9797 4400.

Kind regards,

Ben Lagana
