Term 1 Reports and Progress Meetings

Progress Statements provide a brief overview of a student’s level of achievement and work practices in each of their subjects in Term 1. This is followed by a more detailed report at the end of Semester 1. Each reporting period is supported by the opportunity for parents and students to meet with teachers at Progress Meetings for more detailed conversations about student learning.

Diphtheria, tetanus and pertussis (whooping cough) – one dose for year 7 students
Human Papillomavirus (HPV) – two doses for year 7 students
Meningococcal A,C,W,Y – one dose for year 10 students

Parents/guardians of Year 7 and 10 students should look out for the vaccine consent card booklet coming home with students.

Fire Danger Day Procedures

Due to the College’s unique location in a richly forested area, it is important that parents be familiar with the precautions we take on days of total fire ban and in the event of a bushfire in the area.

Our main perceived threats are an emergency situation on-site (e.g. fire on the property) or a bushfire in the area.

Conveyance Allowance 2019

Students travelling to Mater Christi College may be eligible to claim financial assistance in the form of a conveyance allowance.

In summary, to qualify for the conveyance allowance, a student must reside 4.8km or more by the shortest practicable route from the College.

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.
