Queen of Apostles School
Term 3 Week 3 - Thursday 3 August, 2023
Grandparents Mass & Morning Tea
We are really looking forward to our Grandparent's Mass and Morning Tea tomorrow. Grandparents are very important in the lives of our students and I know they are really looking forward to having them in our school. I thank the P&F for organising the cupcakes and helping to serve tomorrow. I would also like to thank our staff for their part in preparing the Mass and making sure everything is ready to go.
I would like to wish our Year 6 and some lucky Year 5 students all best as they compete in soccer, netball and AFL against other schools in our region next Friday (August 11).
The carnival will be held at Morris Buzacott Reserve in Kardinya and parents/family members are most welcome to attend.
I would like to thank Mr Bridgeman for his organisation in preparation for this day. It promises to be a fun day.
Parent and Caregiver Survey
We are currently collecting information through the NSI Partnerships (National School Improvement Partnerships) to help us make informed decisions on how we can improve our school. As a school, we believe that the parent perspective can assist us on our improvement journey. The Parent and Caregiver Survey (PaCS) will provide feedback to the school leadership team about a wide range of dimensions important to parents. This information will assist us in considering how we can foster greater involvement of parents, as key stakeholders, in the life of the school.
To protect your confidentiality, the survey is completely anonymous and individual responses cannot be accessed. We will only be provided with information when responses from four or more people is provided within any given category. All responses will go directly to NSI (Curtin University) and results are aggregated into feedback reports.
How to complete the report
To respond to the Parent and Caregiver Survey, please go to:
www.NSIPartnerships.com.au and enter the code QOASPACS in the start questionnaire field. You will be asked to respond to statements about the school climate and practices that take place in the school. If you have more than one child in the school, you may want to respond more than once as our students often have different experiences at school.
We value parental feedback and look forward to parents taking up the opportunity to see our school through the eyes of parents, staff and children. The survey will be open from Monday 31st July, 2023. We will send out an email on the 31st July to remind parents that the survey is now open. The survey will remain open until Friday 18th August.
