Dear Parents and Carers

We had a lovely assembly today with lots of parents and grandparents in attendance. Room 11 told us all about the shipwrecks off the Western Australian coast – we were all surprised by how many there are! Thank you to the Room 11 students who showed great confidence when speaking in front of the whole school.

Congratulations to our Merit Certificate Award winners:

Student reports

Next week you will receive your child’s 2021 Semester 1 report. These reports are summative in nature and provide information about your child’s learning over almost two terms of school. Student achievement is determined over time and based on multiple sources of evidence and in different contexts. Teachers collect information over weeks and months and this is collated, and then moderate with year level colleagues to determine a grade for each child. 

Teachers use the Western Australian Curriculum to plan educational programs in all of the areas in your child’s report. Each year level from Pre-primary to Year 6 has an Achievement Standard for each learning area. At the end of the semester the teacher makes a judgement about the extent to which each child has demonstrated learning in each area. In Semester 1 reports, teachers make a professional judgement regarding the level of achievement that the student is demonstrating relative to the achievement standard, taking into account the curriculum that has been taught and assessed to that point in time.

I invite you to discuss any matters about your child’s learning and development with your child’s teacher(s). If you have questions of a more general nature, you are welcome to contact me.
