The Minister for Education and Training, the Hon Sue Ellery MLC, has announced a community consultation to gather the views of local parents, students and community members on the secondary education options in the Clarkson, Kinross and Mindarie area.
The Department’s preferred model for secondary students is to provide them with continuous schooling from Year 7 right through to Year 12 – all delivered in one school environment.
This minimises the transition points in a student’s schooling, creating a more seamless secondary education.
Reducing the number of changes that students experience, by having to move from one secondary school to another, is beneficial for their social, emotional and academic development.
• Clarkson Community High School caters for students from Years 7 to 12.
• Kinross College caters for students from Years 7 to 10.
• Mindarie Senior College caters for students in Years 11 and 12.
As at Semester 2, 2020, the total enrolments of each school are:
There are currently 1822 students across the three schools.
You are invited to have your say, through an online survey, where you can select one of the following options:
• Kinross College and Mindarie Senior College each extend to become Years 7 to 12 schools with separate local intake areas.
• Clarkson Community High School is repurposed and becomes part of North Metropolitan TAFE, Clarkson campus to focus on training for young people.
The online survey is now open and closes at 5.00pm Friday, 18 December 2020.
Below is a factsheet with more information and you are encouraged to read it before taking part in the online survey. Also below is some important information to consider from the Mindarie Senior College Board.
