“Student voice means sharing thoughts, ideas, beliefs and opinions in a safe environment based on trust and respect.”

“Teach the Teacher” (TtT) is a program designed by the Victorian Student Representative Council (VicSRC), which empowers students to have their voice heard within their school. Clarkson Community High School (CCHS), based in north metropolitan Perth, has adapted the TtT program to suit its contextual needs. CCHS is the first known school to run their own adaptation of TtT within Western Australia. The video featured gives a brief overview of how we are currently using this program within our school.

Improving academic standards is a clear focus of the work at Clarkson Community High School. This presentation, which can be downloaded here, has been studied at professional development days at our school and is based upon the work of Dufour & Dufour. Teachers and support staff can view the supporting movie by playing the video that is embedded in the presentation.

Fundamentally, I am asking what strategies will be implemented by our teachers to reduce the number of D/E grades and accelerate learning.

Principal John Young.
