Chaplain's Corner

Parent Newsletter


September 2020

What a busy few weeks we’ve had around ASHS---record numbers have been seen on Wednesday mornings in the canteen enjoying a spaghetti toastie and a hot milo—our new Breakfast Club has been a wonderful way to start a Wednesday!  Clubs are a fantastic way for students to get involved in the ASHS community and feel connected! Pink was the colour for the day as the Year 8 and 10 girls travelled out to Frenchman’s Bay for our Term Beach clean up.  We were grateful that the weather cleared off and sunshine accompanied a wonderful time of rubbish pick up along the beach—kudos to Ms McKeague for planning such a wonderful event.  R U OK day on Thursday, 10 September was successful.  Students wore yellow accessories and gave a gold coin to promote connection and positive mental health.
