As we near the end of what has been a very busy term we look forward to celebrating our student’s successes at the upcoming Student Led Conferences. These conferences will be held in week 10. Notification on how to book your appointments will be sent out over the next few days.
Once again this year your children will be given the opportunity to share with you their work samples and an understanding of their learning. This process has year after year proven to be extremely rewarding for the students as they are encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning, actions, and decisions in an authentic way. Parents are able to gain an insight into their child’s work, as they discuss their strengths, areas they are most proud of and future goals.
The students have been preparing and are excited to welcome the parents into their classrooms. There will be as in previous years prompting questions and guides to stimulate the conference discussions. Teachers will be available to answer any clarifying questions. If a further follow up interview is required that can also be arranged for another time that is mutually suitable. Enjoy this important time and I look forward to seeing you all.
Student Learning Reports will be made available at the end of week 9. We will reshare instructions on how to log into Compass to gain access to the reports.
I am pleased to also announce that we will be celebrating Grandparents Day and Book Week on Thursday 4th August so please let your loved ones know to save the date. We will provide more information early next term.
A few reminders this Thursday evening 16th June at 6pm we will have Constable John Bollard conduct a cyber bullying presentation for our parent community. This will be a vital presentation for parents of students of all ages as we work towards protecting them.
Kindergarten and new families to Mary Immaculate are invited to join us for a welcome BBQ on Friday evening 17th June 6pm – 8pm.
I look forward to working with you all as we continue the wonderful learning taking place at Mary Immaculate. It really is a wonderful place to be, we are blessed to have such a wonderful Parish, parent, staff and student community.
Keep smiling and may God bless you all.
