We have a very attractive uniform that has been designed to suit and to respect the young adults who attend our school. Students should be wearing a school skirt, shorts or trousers and one of the school T.shirts or the blouse / shirt. Students may purchase and wear their own black jerseys and their own black jackets. We would like the jerseys and jackets to be in PLAIN black.
Please be ready for the new year. The Uniform Shop, at the school, will be open from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm on Wednesday 23 January 2013. The uniform can also be purchased on line. To find out more about on line purchasing please please click here.
We are very keen to focus on conversations with your young people that really matter. We want everyone to be comfortable. We want to build relationships between students and teachers that are a key to good learning. We do not want to be put in the position of uniform police. That will seriously damage the wonderfully warm relationships we have developed already and that the students are benefiting from. The uniform is very reasonable and we want your support to make sure your student is wearing it and wearing it well. That is the respect and support that you and your student can show us.
The students are older now so in the first week of term 1, 2013 if a student presents at school not in uniform they will be asked to go home and get the correct gear. I am sure that will not be necessary.
We have a very high expectation that every student at Albany Senior High School will be in uniform.
The stationery list for 2013 is available by clicking here
This list is a guide only as senior students have more input in to how they organise their course notes for the year. Some students may even prefer to bring along a laptop or netbook of their choice and this is certainly encouraged at Albany Senior High School. It would be advisable to delay purchasing stationery until students have confirmed their courses in the first three days of school. During these three days, they will also meet with their subject teachers where they will have the opportunity to finalise any stationery requirements.
Have a safe and relaxing holiday and we look forward to another extraordinary year at Albany Senior High School.
