Principal's Message

With Term 3 drawing to a close, there has been a lot of hard work done with exams looming for our senior students, planning and selection of courses for 2016 almost complete and the report collection/parent interviews, which took place on Thursday, 24th September. 

Facilities Update 

The fences have finally come down and there is now access to all parts of the yard and just some final work being done to repair the oval as the workers depart. Students are now enjoying the upgraded facilities with new options in terms of seating, shelter and play. Minor defects are now being remedied and we are looking forward to the official opening by the State Minister of Education on November 25th


Northern Adelaide State Secondary Schools Alliance (NASSSA), of which Salisbury East High School is a member, has been named as a finalist at the prestigious 2015 Australian Training Awards in the School Pathways to VET Award category. We await the outcome of this nomination when the winner is announced in November. 


It was my pleasure to be part of a large audience to see Salisbury East dancers perform along with Salisbury High students in a very slick, high quality 'Feel the Earth Move' dance performance  on September 16th. The performance was part of the moderated assessment for our Stage 2 dancers and a great opportunity for aspiring dancers to feel what it is like to show their talent in front of a large paying audience. Congratulations to Ms Weston and her support crew of staff from Salisbury East for their efforts to ensure such a professional and polished show was enjoyed by a great crowd.

Neil Atkin workshops (Science) and STEM activities 

Our staff and students participated in two further workshops at SEHS where students and teachers worked to co-design their learning in Science along with students and teachers from other Northern Adelaide schools. Our thanks to Ms Riley for coordinating this event with members of the Teaching for Effective Learning team who provided very positive feedback on the workshops. Ms Riley also coordinated a number of activities including a successful STEM Girls Study Tour. 

Workwise Program for Year 10 

An outstanding program of industry visits, workshops with employers at school and work experience has been put together by Ms McGie, Mr Yarwood and our Beacon industry partners. This timely program is of great relevance to our Year 10s as they select their SACE subjects. 


Students have been involved in a number of sporting competitions with Salisbury East, winning the Ten Pin Bowling and the Senior Girls finishing third in the Northern Zone. Students also participated strongly in 5-a-side soccer and knockout soccer as well as weekly sport. 

I would like to wish students and staff a refreshing break after a productive term and look forward to welcoming back Ms van Ruiten in Term 4 after her travels in Europe. 

Steve Clark, Principal
