What is a Community Liaison Officer (CLO)?
I work alongside staff, parents, volunteers and community services as we provide students with the necessary resources to achieve their academic and personal goals.
I assist in helping parents’ access information and services that will help them and their child be well prepared for their first year of school and throughout their primary education.
Some of the services available will include: Pre-Prep programs, Numeracy & Literacy Workshops, Parenting Workshops, Information sessions from local health and social services etc.
I also aim to build relationships with families prior to commencing formal education and assist families with the transition of their student entering their first year of schooling.
We are fortunate to have a number of Support Service Staff who are able to assist our school community in succeeding academically as well as socially/emotionally. I am able to assist students and parents with accessing these services,
I will be providing support to students on Attendance Plans and will aim to work alongside parents as we identify ways to assist the student to effectively engage in learning and set academic and personal goals.
Accessing Student Information
At Yugumbir SS we aim to ensure that your child transitions into formal schooling with all the help and support they need to learn and succeed.
The CLO will connect with local Early Learning and Kindergarten providers. This is because they have spent a lot of time working with you and your child and therefore have valuable insight into what works best for your child.
Most care providers complete transition statements for your child. This is a record of information about your child’s progress, for you to keep. This statement gives you valuable insight into how your child is developing academically, physically, socially and emotionally.
This statement is also a valuable resource for your child’s new teacher as it gives them a head start in understanding your child’s needs and allows them to start considering what support services and resources will benefit you and your child in their Prep year
The CLO, with your permission, will collect a copy of your child’s transition statement, (if available), from their care provider for this purpose. This statement will be kept in your child’s student file.

I look forward to working with you and your child in the future.
