First Semester Reports
Over the last few weeks, Matt, Stella and I have had the privilege of reading the class reports for the first semester. I would like to thank the teachers for the time and effort that has gone into each summary and comment. Writing student reports and assessing students is the professional role of teachers, however, I know and see the time and effort that goes into each child’s summary. The attention and genuineness with which they write is to be commended.
In reading the student reports, it was great to read comments that highlight each child’s strength and challenges, they also speak personally about the whole person, highlighting areas for growth.
I encourage parents to read their child’s report carefully, congratulate your child on the positives and discuss ways of supporting them in the areas they need to develop. Life is not about receiving straight ‘As’, instead it is about learning, making progress and giving our best. Well done to all students on their achievements.
A few reminders
As we head off for the holiday break I have a few reminders:
- School returns on Tuesday 21st July next term. Staff will be meeting with Damian Weeks on the Monday for professional learning.
- The holidays are a good time for student haircuts, cleaning of uniforms and ensuring we return to school next term looking well groomed.
- Has your child lost a jumper or tracksuit top? The 'Lost Property' box is overflowing with uniform items, lunch boxes and drink bottles that do not have names. I suggest you do a uniform inventory; you will be surprised at what is missing.
Matt Perry, Stella Foley, all the staff and I wish all families a relaxing holiday break. To those families who may be travelling in country South Australia these holidays, please do so safely with care.
Have a wonderful break and best wishes for the future.
