Dear Parents and Carers,
At the upcoming HSHS Board Public Meeting being held in the school library on Thursday 30 November at 4pm, we want to hear from you with any questions you may have for the School Board members about the School or the Board.
To do this, we’ll be using a simple interaction platform called Sli.do. Sli.do allows you to submit questions that you would like answered at the Public Board Meeting.
You can submit questions in the lead up to the Public Board Meeting, or at the meeting.
You can post your questions under your name or anonymously.
We’ve received feedback that parents often feel a bit nervous or embarrassed about asking questions in front of a large group of people. We hope that by using Sli.do we can help everyone to ask what’s on their mind.
Using Slido is really easy. You don’t need to download an app or create an account.
Step 1: Go to https://www.sli.do/
Step 2: Enter the event code which is # 1148 and press the “JOIN” button
Step 3: Type your question with your name or anonymously and press “SEND”
We would love to receive your feedback on your experience with Slido and whether it helped you feel more comfortable to ask questions.

Talking Drugs Parents Information Session
Dear Parents and Carers,
As part of Hedland Senior High School’s commitment to ensuring excellence in teaching and learning, we are excited to begin implementing our Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) initiative in 2018.
The School Curriculum and Standards Authority have stated that:
“ICT capability supports and enhances student learning across all areas of the curriculum. Students develop and apply ICT knowledge, skills and appropriate social and ethical protocols and practices to investigate, create and communicate, as well as developing their ability to manage and operate ICT to meet their learning needs.”
Therefore, on the 28th of November, at 6:30pm, the Information & Communications Technologies (ICT) Team are pleased to invite you to an information session for all LEAP Students Yrs 7-9, Academic Extension Students Yr 10, and ATAR Students Yrs 11-12 parents. Here, we will elaborate on exactly how investing in ICT will benefit your child’s learning needs and extend their capability as students of the modern world.
The information session will cover the following topics:
- Rollout and timing for 2018
- Device specifications and recommendations
- Advanced ICT usage in the classroom
- Design Project ICT integration
- Using ICT to improve outcomes across learning areas
There will also be an opportunity to ask questions, make suggestions and express any concerns you may have. 2018 marks an exciting development in the integration of digital technologies into the classroom at HSHS. We hope you will join us at the launch of this exciting initiative.

If you did not receive a copy, you can find the school’s official communication here:
School Expert Review Information
Students have been given a letter regarding the school’s policies on bullying and student mental health, which they were asked to pass on to parents and carers.
We endeavoured to have every student receive a letter, but some may have missed out. If you didn’t receive a letter, please see the attached PDF, or copies are available from front administration.
We hope to communicate to all parents and carers that if you are concerned about your child’s health and wellbeing, please contact the school, as there is lots of help available.
