As Anzac Day falls in the Easter holidays this year, we held our ceremony on the last day of term (April 12th).
Students and staff paid respects to all those brave souls lost in conflict for our country.
Well done to all for a great assembly.
Lest we forget.

NAPLAN tests for Years 7 and 9 will be held Tuesday 14 - Friday 24 May 2019
NAPLAN is made up of tests in four areas:
Language conventions (spelling, grammar and punctuation)
Students and parents are invited to use the public demonstration tests to familiarise themselves with the type of questions and related functionalities available in the NAPLAN Online assessment.
The Online Literacy and Numeracy Assessment(OLNA) commences next week in all WA secondary schools. The assessment is designed to enable students to successfully meet the Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE) requirement of demonstrating the minimum standard of literacy and numeracy.
The Clarkson CHS Literacy Support website below provides our Year 10 students with access to mock OLNA tests and examples of effective writing. Practise lots this weekend!

In Week 4, our Year 7- 9 low literacy learners commence the WordFlyers programme to support their literacy development and their performance in May’s NAPLAN examination.
WordFlyers is a comprehensive online literacy program which brings students’ literacy skills up to standard in grammar, reading, comprehension, punctuation, vocabulary and writing.
The differentiated activities allow students to work at their ability, with a review level designed to bring struggling students up to standard.
