A Message from the Principal

Albany Senior High School commenced in 1918 as a district high school in York Street. Subsequently, we moved to the new site on the north western side of Mount Clarence which was officially opened in 1925. The iconic buildings are a beacon within the City of Albany and are a symbol of success to its thousands of graduates.

 

The school’s vision statement, “A tradition of opportunity and success”, connects our past with an unfolding future. Our history reflects proud traditions, which include our iconic blazer with its distinctive green, brown and yellow stripes and our school crest.

 

The school’s crest contains the words, “Keep Troth”, reflecting the notion of commitment to being true to oneself, the school and the greater community. This commitment is clearly seen in the staff and students’ attitude to Country Week where our teams have brought back the prized Champion School trophy again in 2015. Our commitment to the overall community is seen in the engagement in a number of environmental projects. This is seen in our marine studies program where staff and students are part of the process of monitoring the health of our community’s pristine marine environment.

 

Our Values Charter captures what is important to the school community. We place a high priority on the educative process. Our emphasis on fundamental literacy and the capacity to find and utilise information, especially with the use of Information Communications Technologies, means that our students are being prepared to live in the 21st Century and contribute positively in society.

 

We offer a wide range of courses from Year 7 to 12. This involves extensive tertiary entrance and vocational subjects with the overall goal of assisting senior students to find an educational pathway that matches their abilities and their life experiences. The school reflects on the past while looking to the future in preparing our students to be successful citizens in an ever changing world.
