Clans play an important role within the school as they create a sense of team unity. Clans (similar to Houses) work in a number of ways within Kelmscott Senior High School, in a sporting nature and as a behaviour incentive. Clans are also a means of maintaining the sense of belonging attributed to homerooms at Kelmscott
Kelmscott has four Clans: Dale, Gell, Lucich & Martin. Students are organised into Clans when they enrol in the school. The Clans compete against each other for the Clan Shield at sporting carnivals.
In addition the Clan system is used as a behavioural incentive within the school, where students are awarded Clan Points from their teachers for commendable behaviour. These points are distributed by teachers’ use of the House Points booklets. A booklet can be obtained from Student Services.
