NASHS Dual Winner of WA Mental Health Awards 2020

It is a terrific acknowledgement for the NASHS Community to be named as one of four finalists in the Education category of the WA Mental Health Awards for 2020. On the 25th November at the HYATT, Makayla Owen and Bailey Dixon with Mrs Bolt were privileged to represent the school community. We were proud and excited when NASHS was announced the dual winner of this category. Below is the citation read to the audience.

"North Albany Senior High School, or NASHS, has created a positive and supportive environment where the community collaborates and works together towards implementing programs, practices and interventions in response to identified issues."

These initiatives support the development of a positive school environment and include the NASHS 2019 - 2021 School Business Plan, Building a Village, and the Positive Behaviour Support philosophy. The NASHS staff and students use a common language and processes that ensure consistency and equity. The school's values allow members of the community to reflect on behaviours with understanding to achieve resolution.

This award is a fantastic acknowledgement of the hard work that the whole NASHS community provides to support students, staff and families and continues to work to improve.
