It may have been a warm one on Wednesday in Ellenbrook but many of our students found a way to have a bit of fun and cool down in the process. Well done to Quenda, our victorious faction for 2019 and the many wonderful students who consistently reflect our college values.
Introducing Josie Slater who will be joining our Visual Arts and Home Economics areas. Josie comes with the perfect qualifications and experience for this position and we are so pleased to have her working with us next year.
Hi, My name is Josie Slater and I’m extremely excited to be joining Aveley Secondary College in 2020 as a Visual Art and Home Economics teacher.
I hold a BA honours in Mixed Media Fine Art from the University of Westminster along with a Graduate Diploma in Secondary Education from ECU. I have previously taught at Girrawheen Senior High School before spending the past two years teaching in London as both a Food technology teacher and most recently as Head of Art.
I am committed to guiding students to reach their full potential, preparing them with skills, knowledge and an attitude to be curious, solve problems and communicate well in order to become lifelong learners.
I am a vocal advocate for the power of the Arts to unite communities and empower young people and I’m looking forward to becoming an active member of Aveley Secondary College and the wider community

My name is Aaron Carroll and I am looking forward to joining Aveley Secondary College in 2020 both in Student Services as year 8 coordinator and within the Science department. I have 8 years teaching experience in the southern suburbs of Perth, and with a Bachelor’s Degree in Science, majoring in Human Biology, hope to bring a wealth of knowledge and experience Aveley. Merry Christmas, happy holidays and I look forward to meeting you all in 2020!
At our final whole school assembly Bradley Ball from Random Acts of Kindness accepted the donated food and toys that the students and families have donated to assist many vulnerable families escaping domestic violence. This was a very touching story and obviously impacted one of our students greatly, who promptly donated his prize earned in our attendance raffle. What a wonderful gesture and lovely to see students reflecting our values and wanting to have a positive impact in our community. What a lovely gesture Sean.
Last night we hosted our inaugural ASC Arts Festival. Students showcased their artwork and entertained our school community with amazing singing, drama and dance performances. The night’s entertainment was emotional and memorable and we already look forward to next year’s festival!
We would like to thank all parents for the range of compliments and thanks that the College and individual teachers have received this year. We have an incredibly talented and dedicated staff, all working hard to support our students. Thank you all, for your support and acknowledgement.
At our end of year ASC awards assembly today, our outstanding and high achieving students were presented with subject, mutual agreement, excellence, year coordinator’s, aboriginal leadership and attendance awards. Our student leaders presented a cheque to Michael Wickins from the Whiteman Park Conservation Project from donations given at our Colours for a Cause and Colour Run event. Our students also handed over donations to Bradley Ball from People Who Care.
Congratulations to Mr Jeff Imrie who was successful in winning our Head of Technologies position at Aveley SC. Jeff’s experience and skills will assist this talented team of teachers to provide outstanding programs for students at the college.
We would like to thank Kirsten Horsting and her team at Ellenbrook Connect – Ellenbrook Community Christmas Appeal, for donating hampers to our ASC families that may be doing it tough through the holiday period. This generous contribution will ensure some of our ASC families are brought joy and cheer over this christmas period.
Today we hosted our ASC STEM day. All of our students had a great time, code-breaking, building their ultimate pop stick towers, investigating crime scenes and patient infections. Despite the heat, we all enjoyed a fun Friday.
