Albert & Christian Porter visit Clarkson CHS

29 March 2016

It wasn’t all work for Federal Member for Pearce, Christian Porter and State Member for Ocean Reef, Albert Jacob when they teamed up recently to explore their federal and state electorates.

The day involved a visit to Clarkson Community High School where they were given a tour of the school facilities by Principal John Young, teaching staff and the student leadership group, which featured the opportunity to experience a new playground at the school.

“The facilities and attitudes of the staff and students at Clarkson Community High School were impressive,” Mr Porter said. 

“There is a real feeling of community here, of which everyone is very proud to be a part of.

“It is pleasing to see the school offering such a diverse curriculum which caters to every student’s individual strengths, whether they be academic extension and higher education or vocational education and training which prepares them for the world of work while still being at school.”

“Whilst the facilities at the school continue to improve, so too does the community culture amongst the students and staff that make up the school,” Mr Jacob said.

“I was delighted to see the focus that the school is placing on creating a learning environment that benefits all students and best prepares them for their future.
