Assessment, Reporting and Planning
Our classroom teachers are continuing to assess and plan for student learning based on task submissions and focus group work through Webex. Submitting tasks and attendance at learning sessions, wherever possible, supports student learning and also allows our teachers to determine learning needs and achievements with greater accuracy. We thank our families for their support.
Learning School Review
Last Friday saw the final component of our School Review process completed. This comprehensive process is conducted every four years and provides an opportunity to review all areas of the school, including Teaching & Learning, Student Voice & Agency, Leadership and School Community. The School Review allows us to acknowledge our achievements, identify areas for future improvement and supports us to plan our direction for the following four year cycle through the development of a school Strategic Plan.
All of our staff, a wide cross-section of students and members of our school community were involved in reflecting with the panel and providing feedback throughout the review process. This input enabled an accurate evaluation of our work over the past four years and also provided valuable insight that will support the development of our next Strategic Plan. We thank everyone for their involvement in this valuable process.
We would especially like to thank the following members of our school community for their time and input into the School Review Process:
