Partnerships

Clifford Park Special School has a number of strong partnerships in the school and local community. 

Clifford Park Special School P and C

The Clifford Park Special School P and C meets every 3rd Thursday of each month at 4:00pm.  The P and C has a direct input into the curriculum direction of the school through the notification of specific curriculum based excursions.   The P and C is also very active in the raising of funds for curriculum activities including equipment and camps for all students. 

Parents and the extended community enjoy a number of social engagements throughout the year including a Car Show, a Trivia Night, and a Race Day.  The P and C also engages directly with students through the holding of Mother Day and Father Day stalls.  They support the very popular annual Christmas Markets.   

Senior Schooling - ready for life after school

Through our Senior Schooling program, Clifford Park Special School has built strong relationships with the local community. Our PATH (Planning Alternate Tomorrows with Hope) program plans for engagement of students in the local community.   Specific Disability Providers are interacted with through our Post School Sampling Program.  Students and parents are able to determine appropriate after school placements for their children through a specific program that actively allows engagment in placements to test suitability.

Volunteer placements, work experience and work placements are opportunities for students to try out suitable work based activities.  The school has many partners on board with work placements within our local community.  These include landscapers, mechanics, schools, aged care facilities and retail outlets.  In addition students can participate in formal Certificate and Traineeship courses to extend their educational learning through our partnerships with training organisations.
