The new year 7s have made an excellent start to St Albans Secondary School. The first day was jam packed with activities to show case the school. The students were very quiet and respectful when they met for their first year level assembly.  At that time they gained some knowledge of the behaviour expectations of the school, as well as details of how the school was managed. The students enjoyed a House assembly and also a welcome BBQ on their first day, to assist them in making new friends.  In addition there was an afternoon of sports and team building activities so that the new students could meet all their new classmates.  It was great to see so many students catching up with old friends from primary school as well as making new friends.

All the Year 7 classes will be undertaking a walking tour of St Albans as part of their Humanities studies.  This is an opportunity to get to know the local neighbourhood and understand what facilities are available to residents and visitors alike. 

All Junior School students have the privilege of attending a class camp at our Strathbogie campus.  This 3 day excursion involves travelling by bus to Strathbogie, approximately 2 hours from here.  Whilst on camp they will take part in activities such as canoeing and archery.  The students will assist with food preparation and other chores around the campsite.  Most classes climb nearby Mt Wombat, as well as visit a local farm to meet with some animals.  More than anything it is a terrific opportunity to get to know one another, as well as developing a rapport with teaching staff whilst outside the classroom. 

Our Junior School students Elisha Chua and Jayden Truong spoke beautifully in front of almost 2,000 people at the recent Whole School Assembly.  The students expressed thanks for the welcome that they have received at SASC as well as a note on their aspirations for their time at school.  They also wished our Year 12 cohort all the best for their big year of study in 2024. 


The upcoming Year 7 Expo is a very important event on the school calendar.  This is a chance for family and carers of our students to come onto the campus and view some of the school work that is being done.  You will have a chance to meet with core teaching staff and get to know the school a bit better.  Additionally, family members will work with their students to actually do a bit of the school work, for each core subject.  Please note that this is scheduled for 6pm on 27 February.  We look forward to welcoming you all on this day.
