Students on Inside Track

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.

Ms Ali McCammon, a teacher from Belfast, visited Clarkson Community High School as a part of her Churchill Fellowship to visit schools in Canada and Australia that inspire boys to learn. Clarkson CHS is recognised as an Invitational Education school. A school in which climate and culture attempt to improve students’ positive self-concept, which in turn, influences students’ choices of behaviour.

On Thursday 25 August, the Year 12 Student Councillors from Clarkson Community High School were invited to luncheon at Parliament House in the members' lounge by the Hon. Albert Jacob MLA. The students thought that the luncheon was delicious and were very appreciative to see how the Western Australian Parliament worked after spending some time in the Legislative Assembly.

The school would like to thank Mr Jacob for his kind invitation.
