Mathematics Assessment Interview

At the beginning of each year, all primary school students in the Parramatta Diocese are assessed using the Mathematical Assessment Interview (MAI).

This opportunity gives classroom teachers valuable information about the students knowledge, skills and understanding in Numeracy.

This is an individual assessment interview with the new classroom teacher and it  takes approximately 20-30 minutes per student. Teachers will be completing this assessment interview with students on the planned ‘Pupil-Free’ days in January.

Please keep your eye out  in the coming weeks for more information about booking a suitable time in 2021. 

Thank you,

Mrs Bond

Book Fair Update

Thank you to everyone who ordered from the Book Fair it was a great success.
