For the remainder of this term and next we are trialling having the full Newsletter on odd weeks and an Update on the even weeks. This will assist in streamlining the information sent out to families. This week you are receiving therefore an “Update”.
Reporting on Semester 1 Learning
For this semester's reporting, the provisions for how we report are hugely different. We want to make use of this opportunity to really set the students up for future success in their learning. In this semester's report, reporting on separate subjects and giving grades are not required. The format of the reporting process is a local decision. The format we have developed reflects the power of effective and timely feedback to inform student goal setting and engagement. It also values and builds in the involvement of parents which is also critical to student success.
Thank you again for the significant contribution you have made this semester to your child’s remote learning. We value greatly the information you will provide in completing the following questions with your child.
Parents will be emailed a link tomorrow for them to complete the form. The link will also be sent out through Skoolbag. Hardcopies can also be printed at home and filled out using the PDF link supplied if necessary. Students and parents are then to answer three questions together provided in this Google Form to be completed by Monday June 22.
