Student’s Stationery & Text Book List

While NASHS does provide resources for use in class, the booklist indicates textbooks and equipment that your child will need to purchase to study the selected courses.

 

All textbooks are supplied for students in Years 7 to 10. A workbook may be requested for some subjects.

Students in Year 11 and 12 need to supply their own textbooks as indicated on the lists.

 

NASHS does not endorse the purchase of these items from any particular supplier. We believe it is a family decision as to where to purchase these student requirements.

ATTENDANCE

 

It’s not OK to be away – A better attendance means a brighter future

It is a simple fact that the better a student’s attendance, the better their results will be. By attending school each day students have a much greater likelihood of actively engaging in the curriculum and developing the knowledge and skills they need for future personal and career success.

 

Those students who attend school more regularly also tend to have a stronger sense of belonging, they feel part of a community, they have a solid group of friends and find school more enjoyable.

 

Please inform the school if your child is unable to attend either by:

  • Phone the front office – 9892 0611
  • Reply to an attendance SMS message
  • Email the school - northalbany.shs@education.wa.edu.au
  • A signed note upon their return to school.

 

Staff at NASHS:

  • Mark rolls every day and every period
  • Ask for notes if your child has been absent
  • Check on your child’s wellbeing if they are away from school a lot
  • Inform family/caregiver when they are absent

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • your child has an infectious disease

NAPLAN

 

Year 7 and 9 National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy - NAPLAN 


In May all Year 7 and 9 students across Australia will take part in the National Assessment Program Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN)

NAPLAN is designed to help parents and teachers better judge how Year 7 and 9 students are performing in relation to nationally-agreed standards.  As this has become part of our reporting to parent processes, it is anticipated that all students will participate.

NAPLAN Assessments will be conducted in Writing, Language Conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation), Reading and Numeracy.  There are a total of 4 assessments, Writing is the first assessment and its results are used to set the appropriate level for the following Literacy assessments.

It is important to attend the Writing test due to its significance.  Each assessment is approximately one hour in length. The NAPLAN assessments will take place during normal school. At NASHS all Year 7 and 9 students will sit the tests under formal assessment conditions in their classrooms.

Students absent on the assessment day/s will be provided with an opportunity to do the assessment later in that week.  Withdrawal and Exemption forms can be found HERE on the website

NASHS - ASESC P&C

 

AGM: March 31, 2021

P&C meetings are held twice a term.

 

Your P&C Needs You

Held in NASHS staffroom (entrance via NASHS main administration building and upstairs

2021 Office Bearers

President Tash Weir
Secretary Caroline Bole
Treasurer
Karen Petty 
School Board Rep Tash Weir

 

Email Contact Address    pcnashsasesc@gmail.com 

Our P&C is a combined NASHS & Albany Secondary Education Support Centre Association. New and existing parents/carers are very welcome to attend P&C meetings.

 

The canteen is operated and staffed by the P&C and provides a range of healthy food options for students.  Lunches can be ordered online using quickcliq

 

Our P&C provides the forum for parents, teachers and citizens to collaborate to continuously improve our schools, North Albany Senior High School and Albany Secondary Education Support Centre. 

We meet twice a term and always welcome new faces. Each year office bearers for the P&C are elected at the AGM. This year we are looking for new people and ideas for all positions.

Volunteers who take on these positions will be given good support and training, no previous experience is required.

 

 

Here are some reasons as to why you should be involved in our P&C:

 

  • You get a behind‐the‐scenes look at your child’s school. The NASHS and ASESC Principals, participate in the meetings, and we get to hear from them some of the great things that have been happening at school – things that often aren’t in the newsletters.
  • We get asked our opinions on school matters and get to have an input in some decisions.
  • We have the opportunity to ask questions about school policies and procedures and get things clarified.
  • P & C is a way for parents to be heard, and to be a valued voice in the community.
  • Plus, you feel a part of your child’s education and get to spend a pleasant couple of hours in friendly
  • Great company, and share a cuppa!

 

Just a few things your P & C does:

 

  • Successfully applied for funding for Solar Panels at NASHS which were installed in 2018
  • Runs NASHS canteen with employed staff (no volunteers) every day of the week.
  • Fundraising is used to provide facilities and resources for the students eg lockers, outdoor seating, iPads, Endeavour Awards, outdoor table tennis table and support ASESC Unity Days.
