Parent interviews with teachers and Principal

Parents may discuss their child’s progress and/or behaviour at any time with the Year Level Coordinator. Any question of school policy should be discussed with the Principal.

Parents are asked to phone the College (9580 1184) to make an appointment and, on arrival at the school, to call at the General Office where staff will locate the appropriate person.

Parent/teacher contact

Parents are encouraged to have contact with teachers on a regular basis.

Reporting

Reporting to students and parents will clearly communicate student learning, progress and achievement and will provide recommendations which assist the student’s future learning.  It will also foster co-operation and encourage communication between parents, teachers and students concerning the student’s progress.

 

Reporting should take place on a regular basis and encourage students to take a proactive role in their learning and improvement and include:

  • Continuous release of assessments throughout the year
  • Progress checks are conducted via Compass three times during each semester, approximately every five weeks.
  • Detailed end of Semester reports provided at the end of Terms 2 and 4
  • Meetings between staff, students and parents arranged as required
  • Years 7 – 12 Parent Teacher Interviews in Terms 1 and 3 along with Year 7 – 9 Student Led Conferences (with parent present) in Term 4
  • Information sessions related to curriculum and assessment procedures, at various times throughout the year.
