Normally we would be running transition activites for students in Grade 4 moving to Clarke St, but current guidelines do not allow them. We have produced a short video to introduce the Year 5 teachers, meet other key staff and provide an overview of what programs and facilities the Clarke St campus has to offer.
The Clarke St Hub is a Years 5 and 6 site with an average annual enrolment of 150 students across six classrooms – three Year 5 classes and three Year 6 classes.
We strive to support all students to be their best and to achieve at the highest level. When our Year 4 students move across to the Years 5 and 6 Hub, they will be involved in a program that strongly reflects and builds upon the knowledge and skills that they have built during their P-4 education. Students will be involved in the same subject areas that mainly comprise of Literacy, Numeracy, Science, Technology, Physical Education, History, Geography, Indonesian, Art and Music. We offer a range of programs to our students to support their learning. These supports include the QuickSmart Maths program, Literacy Intervention and a MacaLit program to helps students to develop their phonemic awareness.
The Clarke St Campus is supported in its leadership by the Yr 5/6 Sub School Leader, Emily Carr. An integral component of this role is supporting students and families to transition positively into Years 5 and 7. We encourage families/carers to please make contact with the sub school leader if you wish to discuss any concerns that may arise.
Every week we celebrate the achievements of our students by holding an assembly. We discuss important topics, students of the week, celebrate students achievements and upcoming events. Our Campus Leaders host assemblies and we enjoy watching them grow in confidence every week!
Our Campus Leaders are elected every Term, students apply and will make a speech to their class on why they would make a good campus leader, students then vote on who they would like to represent them.
We also have House captains, they help organise games at lunch time and represent their houses at College sporting events. The Student Leadership group also organise Positive Behaviour Support (PBS) events. This may include Sausage sizzles, casual days or Icy Poles.
