Term 3 Progress Reports and Parent-Teacher Interviews

Progress reports provide parents and guardians with a brief snapshot of how your child is progressing during the second semester. Progress reports cover the areas of effort, behaviour, use of classtime, ability to meet deadlines and, homework & preparation for class. Progress reports are now available for parents to view on Compass.

 

Parent-Teacher Interviews are scheduled for Tuesday 18th September from 3 to 6pm. The interviews provide an important opportunity for you and your child to discuss his/her progress and to build communication between parents and the College. It is expected that students accompany their parents to the interviews and participate in the discussion of their progress and areas for improvement. The online booking portal is now open on Compass. Parents can access the online booking system using your Compass Username and Password. For assistance with bookings, please contact the office on 9546 3233.

This is what you look for on Compass:

 

You can make bookings by clicking the 'Book Parent Teacher Interviews' button available next to your child's photo on the Compass homepage, or by clicking the Dashboard Alert at the top of your News Feed.

 

Interpreters can be requested by selecting a language from the drop-down menu on the booking sheet. For a language not on the list, please contact your child's coordinator, or the school.

Coffee on Cue

 

To thank you for taking the time to come to the school to keep your appointments, we have organised for a mobile coffee cart from 3:30-6:00pm on Tuesday, 18th September. Each family will be able to get a free coffee/tea/hot chocolate when you present your booking sheet with signatures from at least 3 teachers that you have seen at the PT event. Alternatively, families can collect a Allocation of Rooms for Parent Teacher Interview sheet from Balook prior to your first interview session, and have teachers sign on the sheet, and take this to the coffee cart to get your free coffee/tea/hot chocolate.

 

All interviews will be conducted in Balook and the coffee cart will be set up outside the area.

Summer Uniform

End of Term 3 is rapidly approaching. Students and families are reminded that all students should be in full summer uniform on the first day of Term 4. This means, summer dress for girls, no tights or stockings. Students participating in PE and sport classes, are expected to wear a school cap when outside.

 

Thank you to all families for your continued support of the college uniform policy.
