Learning Information for Parents

Student-Led Conferences

As part of our commitment to development social skills and enterprise skills, students-lead conferences, with the support of teachers, are held at the end of Term 2 and Term 4. During these student-led conferences students identify their own strengths and areas for growth, citing and showing evidence to support their opinions. Parents have the opportunity to provide feedback or ask questions.



Session Times

Whilst we don't have Bell Times, we do have 3 x 100 minute sessions each day. Our times are as follows:

Reports

Reports are given to parents twice in each school year. As part of Compliance protocol we are required to report to parents in plain English using an A to E scale in relation to curriculum areas. We are required to publish the performance of individual students relative to the rest of the cohort if required by parents. The report will also includes a statement from CEDP regarding NAPLAN.



Work Samples

Work samples are also made available to parents via e-folios and other online applications throughout a term/semester and contribute to interviews, grades and comments provided at the end of each semester.

Seesaw, a student-driven digital portfolio, is used as a means of involving parents in your child’s learning. Seesaw allows students to independently document what they are learning at school and share it with their teachers, parents, classmate and, where relevant, a broader audiences. Other work samples are also made available to parents at the student-led conferences to support the grades and comments given within the report.
