SCHOOL partnerships are supporting police engagement with students at Clarkson Community High School and Yanchep District High School.

The WA Police and Community Youth Centres (PCYC) is expanding its youth services into the North West Metropolitan area, using funds provided by the Department of Local Government and Communities.

Program co-ordinator Christine Howard said the service expansion would engage with local youth, with the first outreach event planned at Yanchep District High School this Friday.

CLARKSON Community High School’s remix of a motivational song has resonated in overseas education forums.

In step with the school’s invitational theory approach to learning, staff asked head boy Habir Jumani and student councillor Raudhah Soffian to compose music for The Invitational Good Morning Song.

Principal John Young said a video of Habir playing the drums and Raudhah on the guitar and vocals, posted on the school website this month, quickly got students and others talking.

It is rare for police to want to see teenagers let loose inside a police car but this week saw a notable exception.

A WA Police Academy resilience program invited six automotive enthusiasts from Clarkson Community High School to help with the finishing touches of the restoration of a vintage police sedan.

The 1964 Ford Anglia, formerly on display in the WA Police Historical Society museum looked as good as new when the students were finished.

POLITICIANS came out to play in Clarkson recently, joining students at a high school playground.

With the suburb part of their electorates – thanks to recent boundary changes – Pearce MHR Christian Porter and Ocean Reef MLA Albert Jacob teamed up last month to explore the area.

Clarkson Community High School principal John Young, teaching staff and the student leadership group gave the pair a tour of the grounds, including the nature playspace that opened last year.
