Australind Senior High is a large, comprehensive regional school of 1400 students located in the South-West region providing an orderly, safe and supportive environment for staff and students. The Australind community is widespread and diverse with 600 students attending school by bus each day from Harvey, Brunswick Junction, Binningup and a range of other localities within the Harvey Shire. We have a dedicated school Board which supports our tradition of wearing full school uniform and the school ethos 'Through Endeavour, Success'.
As an Independent Public School, Australind Senior High School carefully selects the highest quality teaching staff to ensure students achieve their potential. Our staff is highly specialised and stable, benefiting from a long term strategy of hiring gifted graduate teachers who are mentored by dedicated and experienced staff, guaranteeing a wide range of subject offerings, delivered expertly, across all learning areas in the vocational and university pathways.
At Australind Senior High School, students are forged with the responsibility of being the key participant in their individual success. The school's quality staff enables them to achieve this through excellence in teaching and compassionate relationships. Our students benefit from a staff that shares a whole school pedagogy underpinned by the Department of Education's (WA) Classroom Management Strategies and Instructional Strategies program with all staff developed through this professional learning system.
Australind has a two Academic Specialist Programs, Mathematics and Philosophy (MaP) and Jazz Music, yielding many outstanding students. Our MaP program is highly selective, drawing the most talented academic students in the North Bunbury area, developing them through the tenets of philosophical debate and critical thinking. Students excel in this program, winning many notable scholarships and 99+ attainment in ATAR rankings.
Australind Senior High School also offers its students the chance to give something back to the community by joining its Emergency Services Cadet Unit. Cadets learn care and compassion for others as well as practical and life saving skills which they will carry with them for the rest of their lives.
We have been a Registered Training Organisation (RTO) since 2000, with our students enjoying the privilege of accessing a wide scope of nationally accredited Training Packages delivered onsite by specialised teachers. Students also enjoy a comprehensive Work Place Learning program that provides them access to rich industry experiences leading to traineeship and apprenticeship opportunities.
