Australind SHS

The staff of Australind Senior High School wish to welcome you back for the 2022 school year.  This year as we welcome our new staff and students commencing at our school, we acknowledge the importance of the support of our community and our partnership with families. I also wish to commend our students for the manner in which they managed 2021 and look forward to a new year with fewer impacts on our community as we move beyond an uncertain week 1 of this school year.

School Curriculum and Standards Authority – 2021 EXHIBITIONS AND AWARDS
Congratulations to our Class of 2021 for an incredible total of 11 SCSA Awards in 2021; including Tyler Cooper being awarded a Subject Certificate of Excellence: Biology. Not only is Tyler in the top 8 students in the state for Biology, but ASHS was the only regional country school on this award list.
(Mr Lancaster is one very happy Science teacher …)
Exhibitions and awards are granted by the School Curriculum and Standards Authority to senior secondary students studying Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) courses and vocational education and training (VET). The awards recognise individual excellence in both Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR) courses and VET.

We extend our best wishes and congratulations to all.

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.

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.
We also wish to remind parents and student of the importance and relevance of our school motto “Through Endeavour, Success” as this approach helps us to grow our remarkable young people!
