Principal’s Message

Leading a team of outstanding teachers at Clarke Road School is a privilege. Our teachers strive through on-going professional learning, collegial support and mentoring to provide the highest quality teaching and learning for your child.

All of our teachers are tertiary qualified and meet the Australian Teaching Standards. Teachers are mentored by Assistant Principals under the umbrella of a Learning and Support Team to ensure teaching and learning is tailored to best meet the needs of your child. Targeted on line professional learning and action research ensure we keep pace with the ever changing context of special education. Teachers engage 21st Century technology as a teaching tool to support your child’s engagement in curriculum.

At Clarke Road School our teachers are supported by an extensive team who work in areas such as school counselling, School Learning Support Officers (S.L.S.O), school maintenance and administration management. These staff members ensure the operational effectiveness and support for programs at our school. Parents will come into contact with these staff members on an ongoing basis during the time that your child is at Clarke Road School.

You will be greeted by a welcoming and friendly administrative office team who understand the importance of effective communication with parents. They will be able to direct all of your questions to the right person. Help is only a phone call away.

The future direction and aspirations for your child’s school will be driven by a commitment to excellence that is informed through parent and staff feedback. We will work together to ensure our school is a school of excellence in supporting students who learn differently.

Excellence is never an accident!

Together we will open new worlds for your child.
