With the cooler weather upon us, students are reminded that hoodies and jumpers/jackets that are not ASHS school uniform are not permitted. Jeans and leggings are also not considered school uniform. Students are permitted to wear black long-sleeved undershirts under their school shirt.
Students out of uniform will be requested to remove the non-uniform item if possible. Parents may be called to deliver appropriate uniform to school for students out of uniform.
In Student Services, we endeavour to assist by providing students in need with some uniform items. Parents are encouraged to contact Student Services if they are suffering financial difficulty and require some loan uniform.

The Year 9 leaders were lucky enough to attend the GRIP leadership conference at the Albany Entertainment Centre on 21 April. They were able to network with other leaders within the region and represented our school with pride. The ten leaders were inspired by the conference and are continuing to work on new projects to better ASHS.
Year 10-12 Meditation
We had a number of students attend the Meditation course in Term 1. They were highly engaged and often shared the application of their learnings when returning week to week. Claire Bew delivered the course and focused on building the students capacity to meditate independently.
Albany City Council Strategic Planning Seminar
Eight of our student leaders recently attended a consultative seminar at the Albany City Council. Students worked together to provide their thoughts on the Strategic Plan that is currently being developed for Albany. Topics such as facilities, sustainability, aged care, youth facilities and city planning were discussed. The students were great ambassadors for ASHS willingly participating and providing a valuable youth voice.
