Dear Curtin Families,
It is hard to believe that we are nearing the end of yet another busy term. The students have had a very full and exciting term of learning and most grade levels have now had the opportunity to share what they have been working on in their inquiry units, through successful culminating events over the last few weeks. Well done to everyone.
Semester 1 reports will be sent home before the end of term. As you may be aware, the Education Directorate is trialing a new reporting format this semester and Curtin Primary is part of this trial. As such, student reports will look a little different to previous years. The main changes to the reports include the introduction of year level achievement standards to give an indication of your child’s progress and an overall general comment. These changes allow us to give a more succinct, clear overview of your child’s achievement.
The other significant change with the semester reports is that they will be sent out to families electronically, via email. If you do not receive an email when expected, please check Skoolbag in the first instance for any notices. If we are having technical difficulties we will post an announcement.
You should receive a test email this week to check the correct addresses are being used. If you do not receive a test email, please check Skoolbag and, if there no alerts, then please contact the front office. If the email has incorrect information please forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Next week, from Wednesday, you will receive your child’s report by email. Different year levels will be emailed at different times. So, if you have more than one child in the school you will get more than one email throughout the day and evening. If you do not receive a report, check Skoolbag in the first instance and, if not received by Friday next week (week 9), please contact the school office. Thanks in advance for your patience and for working with us as we introduce the new system.
A reminder that our next assembly is being held in the main hall on Friday 28 June, commencing at 2.10pm. This assembly will be run by our year 3 students and all parents and carers are welcome to attend.
We are continuing to congratulate students who have achieved bronze, silver and gold certificates for demonstrating our Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL) expectations consistently. These certificates are currently given out to students on Monday mornings during lines on even weeks. In Term 3, this will change to Friday mornings during even weeks. Our last PBL awards morning assembly for this term will be next Friday. All students who have been awarded a PBL certificate this semester are invited to attend a special event PBL celebration on Wednesday during week 10. More information will be sent home regarding this soon.
Have a great week,
