During a recent General Staff Meeting, Physical Education Teacher In Charge Liam Mooney, Upper School Coordinator Carys Hurcom and Arts Teacher In Charge Ryan Thornicroft, shared their peer observation stories and discussed the rationale behind their team’s processes as part of Clarkson CHS’s 2019 De-Privatising Our Teaching Practice project. When teacher teams design their own peer observation processes, the ownership and agency increase engagement and our collective efficacy. We look forward to evaluating the project's impact in Semester Two.

Year 7 and 9 students are invited to attend NAPLAN preparation classes commencing on Wednesday 8th May and concluding on Monday 13th May.

NAPLAN is online this year so students will need to feel comfortable typing in examination conditions. The classes will focus on past NAPLAN exam and developing your child’s touch typing skills.

Please visit our school’s NAPLAN preparation website https://sites.google.com/view/lscchs/naplan and NAPLAN practice test webpage https://www.nap.edu.au/online-ass…/public-demonstration-site

As Anzac Day falls in the Easter holidays this year, we held our ceremony on the last day of term (April 12th).

Students and staff paid respects to all those brave souls lost in conflict for our country.

Well done to all for a great assembly.

Lest we forget.
