Year 7 News

Our Year 7 students are transitioning well into student life at North Albany Senior High School for 2020. The school prides itself on the transition program that has been developing since 2016 and has had added, fresh initiatives this year to boost support to our newest students.

Our Principal, Mr Peter Hurle, addressed the Year 7 students recently at their assembly focusing on our school value of being kind. Other topics covered during the assembly included the upcoming immunisation days, the ‘buddy system” and the Year 7 ‘Get to know you’ excursion held at Ellen Cove, Middleton Beach.

Immunisation for Year 7 students will occur during week 8 of this term. All students should have returned their permission slips to the Student Services window by now. If you have not received your child’s permission form, please contact the school administration office.

Under the guidance of our upper school student services coordinator, Ms Julie Duthie, a number of Year 10 students have nominated to participate in a mentoring program to aid the Year 7 students with their transition to North Albany Senior High. Year 12 students Jessica Stals and Eloise Carbonell are leading the program. Jessica has the role of Transition Co-ordinator and Eloise the Buddy Program Cordinator; I look forward to working with these students.

Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th February, nearly 180 NASHS Year 7 students gathered at Ellen Cove, Middleton Beach. Activities on the day centred around the five school values of being your best, being kind, safe, respectful and responsible. A fabulous time was had by all, as the images demonstrate.

A huge thank you to the all the staff and ‘buddies’ that assisted on the two days. A special mention and thanks must go to Ms Woods and Miss Gallimore, who braved the challenging beach conditions both days, along with year 10 students Oliver Dall, Angus Bowles and Angus Rennie.

Upcoming events:

  • Week 5 Friday 6th March, ‘dress as a hero’ day with the gold coin donation used to raise money for the National Bushfire Appeal;
  • Week 7 School photos;
  • Week 7 Friday 20th March, School faction swimming carnival;
  • Week 8 Year 7 Councillor nominations.
