Reporting is ONE process by which this information is communicated to parents/guardians. Your child has been assessed against the standards in the Victorian Curriculum. In addition, you will find an assessment of student achievement against the Religious Education Framework.

Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions or concerns about your child's report.

Learning & Teaching

First Eucharist Parent Child Workshop

A lovely evening was celebrated on Tuesday with our children, parents  and staff to help  prepare for the Sacrament of Eucharist. The children and families made beautiful banners and stoles and participated in a lovely prayer service. We thank all our families for supporting the children in their Catholic faith journey. We look forward to Saturday evening First Eucharist mass at St Timothy's Church.


On Monday 17th June, the entire school participated in a dance workshop run by Alex from ASPA  (Australian School of Performing Arts). The students learned a short dance routine, had fun in a dance game and discussed different forms of dance styles. Students experienced a range of music and dance such as hip hop, salsa, country and contemporary. It was really a fun afternoon and we appreciated Alex's enthusiasm and skill!

Telling our Story- Aboriginal Craft & Tools.

The year 4/5 and 5/6 students have been researching and making Indigenous crafts and tools. They have had to consider the materials, colours and construction of their objects!

Child Safety

Social Media

A reminder that the legal age for children to be able to sign up for most Social Media sites e.g Facebook, Instagram & Snapchat is 13 years old. This is in effort to keep children safe from online hazards from known and unknown sources. Whilst parents are responsible for the final choice of whether they permit their child to access Social Media sites, St Timothy's does not grant children permission to use their school email address. Please assist us in keeping your child safe online.
