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.

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.
