Year 10 immunisations for Nimenrix, (Meningococcal A,C,W,Y) will be held on Tuesday 21 May.
There will also be Year 7 & 8 catch ups for those students who missed out last term.
The following is a message from the Certificate II Community Services class:
"The Certificate II Community Services class will be running the Salvation Army Winter Appeal during term two.
The Salvation Army is in our neighbourhood (in Merriwa) so donations would go to local people who really need the help. Donations of blankets, sleeping bags and warm outdoor clothing may be sent to Northbridge, where people sleeping outside will be needing those things.
This flyer will show you the kinds of things that would be good to donate. This year there will be three places to bring donations: Student Services; the Library; and Home Ec. (in case the library is closed).
Thank you for your attention. We hope everyone at Clarkson Community High School will donate to the Salvation Army Winter Appeal.
Certificate II Community Services class, 2019"
Students’ perspectives on teacher effectiveness and school climate are important. The Western Australian Department of Education is committed to the notion of student voice. FOCUS 2019 says: “Ensure school planning captures the views of students and facilitates involvement where appropriate.” (p 4) At Clarkson CHS, giving students a voice provides valuable feedback. Student voice gives a clear focus on learning and provides important evidence.
Teachers must be open to students' reflections on the learning. Student voice can provide constructive feedback. Feedback can be positive and useful as it provides information to:
1. improve assessment
2. know students
3. adjust teaching
4. improve teacher effectiveness
5. improve school climate
In 2018, the student council conducted a survey in regard to feedback and the teacher-student relationship. The staff members were given an opportunity to analyse the data and how to strengthen the feedback and teacher-student relationship.
This presentation captures the work currently underway in 2019 at Clarkson Community High School. Dr Steve Laing and Ms Jasmita Jeshani are passionate about their work with the student councillors to ensure all students at our school have an effective voice to help drive school improvement through classroom reform.
