Semester Two reports and progress meetings

The central role of Progress Meetings is to provide individual feedback to students and parents, so we encourage everyone to make use of this opportunity to discuss student learning.

The focus of Progress Meetings is to involve all  members of the learning partnership, the student, parent and teacher, in a conversation about student progress, development and direction.

Principal’s Desk – 13 March 2018

This long weekend reminds us not only that the end of term is nigh but more significantly that we are halfway through Lent, with Easter only three weeks away. During this time of Lent, we as Christians are encouraged to reflect through prayer, abstinence and giving to others, on Jesus' life, his suffering and sacrifice, his death and resurrection.

Term 1 Reports and Progress Meetings

The central role of Progress Meetings is to provide individual feedback to students and parents, so we encourage everyone to make use of this opportunity to discuss student learning.

As distinct from the traditional parent-teacher evening, where teachers deliver, and parents receive, our focus is to involve all three members of the learning partnership, the student, parent and teacher, in a conversation about student learning, goals and direction.

Principal’s Desk – 19 February 2018

With the first cycle of classes completed and learning goals set, I congratulate students for participating enthusiastically, especially those new in Year 7, students new in other Year levels and newly arrived international students.  Following their pledge of leadership at our Opening School Mass, the commitment of student leaders has been already demonstrated energetically in presentations at the first assemblies, Ash Wednesday liturgy, Middle School Sports, Welcome Nights and the High Achievers Assembly.
