A reminder that this week will be holding a special NAIDOC assembly at 2:20pm on Monday 1 July and we will be celebrating and taking a deeper dive into Aboriginal perspectives through our learning during the week. We hope that you will join us at the assembly and thank you to one of our parent for helping us out with our celebrations of the contributions of the oldest culture on Earth - the First Australians.
At the end of the week, students will all receive their school reports for Semester 1. As reported earlier this semester, the school has made some changes to the format for the reports. You will notice that the comments for English, Mathematics have been broken down into: 1) a standard comment advising what has been learning; 2) some points telling you what they have achieved; 3) some points proving areas for development; and 4) some brief ideas to say how they will get there. For the other KLAs a comment telling you what they have been learning is included under each subject. Then, a separate comment provides a breakdown like for English and Mathematics but collectively for all the minor KLAs.
Additionally the General comment is now at the beginning together with the social habits and commitment to learning. We hope that the reports provide more information and some clearer suggestions for how you can help. We will be evaluating the reports to gain some more feedback. These changes are in response to the Tell Them From Me parent survey feedback which told us that the reports needed more detail. We hope this has been achieved.
Our musical groups have been busy and on Tuesday our Dingoes class will be going with Ms Caponas to the Cantabile Festival rehearsal. The final concert will be in August and is a choral and musical extravaganza from across public schools that is held at Sydney Opera House.
This Friday marks the end of another term of learning and also the end of Semester 1. We would like to thank you for your help during the year in catering for your child’s learning needs and wish you a great holiday. The school will close and reopen on 22 July for office enquiries and on 23 July all students return.
