Dear Parents and Caregivers.

After many years of service to the Department of Education and, most recently, as Principal of Clarkson Community High School, John Young has made the decision to retire.

As he will not return to the role of Principal prior to his official retirement date, I have been asked to continue in the role of Principal until the end of Term 3 allowing time for the position to be advertised and filled as a permanent placement.

We wish John well in his retirement.


Parents and caregivers are reminded that nominations for the School Council close at 3:00pm on Friday 23 April 2021. An application form has already been emailed to all parents. Elections will be held if we have more than three nominees.

Please contact Principal Kristy Watson on 08 6206 5000  should you have any questions regarding School Council membership. Thank you.

Dear Parents/Caregivers

Welcome to the 2021 school year. I am delighted to be joining the Clarkson CHS community for Semester 1 whilst John Young is on leave.

Dear Parents/Carers

I am writing to advise that the Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Sue Ellery MLC, has announced the results from the community consultation for public secondary schools in the Mindarie, Kinross and Clarkson area.

Staff and students from Clarkson Community High School collaborated with researchers from University of Western Australia in a world first longitudinal study to investigate the effects of screen use on adolescent mental health over time.

As a caring community school, we are continually looking at research to determine how to best provide positive outcomes for our students.
