Welcome to Alfred Deakin High School (ADHS).  We are a multicultural school, embracing students from 67 different cultures and we have sister schools in China, Indonesia and Japan.  We pride ourselves on providing a first class education for our students and offer many extra curricular activites to enrich our students' lives. Explore our website to learn more about all ADHS has to offer.


NAPLAN for Year 7 and 9 students will be held on May the 12th to Thursday the 14th. All students are required to sit these tests.  While the tests do not go towards assessment, they are a valuable tool both for individuals and the school and are used to inform our teaching programme. It is important that all students take these tests seriously and to try their absolute best. For further information and the NAPLAN schedule, please click on the link below.
