A Note from the Principal
Parent Opinion Survey Coming in Term 3
Early next term, approximately 40 families will be randomly selected to complete the 2019 Parent Opinion Survey. More information will follow next term, however the survey is an important part of informing the direction of the school. Over the 4 year strategic plan cycle, the school rolls out initiatives designed to improve student outcomes and the survey enables parents to let us know how we are going. For those families that are selected, please find some time to complete the survey, as the information it yields will help us to continually improve the school so that we can better serve your children.
Student Led Conferences
Next Wednesday at our Parent/Teacher/Student conferences, students will be able to show off their learning growth this year and discuss goals for the remainder of 2019. Our conferences are 10 minute sessions and will allow families to meet with their child’s classroom teacher and go beyond a surface level conversation, so that we can cater to your child’s point of need. Essentially, we want to be able to discuss the areas of improvements your child has made, where there may be gaps in their understanding and where to next. By working together and keeping each child at the centre of the conversation, we will be able to maximise their learning outcomes. I look forward to seeing all families throughout the afternoon and evening. Instructions on how to book an interview time is available via the notification on dojo or by visiting www.schoolinterviews.com.au

The mid-year reports are being sent home today. These reports are a snapshot of your child’s learning growth over the previous 6 months. We firmly believe that every child is capable of success in their learning and we are looking to see whether a child has progressed along the way. Sometimes students will be moving along at the expected rate, sometimes they may be a little behind, but are making ground, sometimes they have a stellar year and make enormous strides.
Reports are a great time to boost confidence. Look for the positives so that we can build on them, as learning comes to us all in our own time.
Please note that the photo on the front of the report is their 2018 photo as we have yet to receive this year’s photo.
