We again thank you for your continued support from home and congratulate our families on their collective efforts in learning.
Many thanks must go to our teachers for their continued energy and enthusiasm on-screen.
Matthias and Pieter - Awesome August final push
See this article for interesting findings from recent research into student academic gains during a pandemic period. It supports our observations that students continue to learn, despite the challenges.
You may have heard recent announcements about Victoria’s success in NAPLAN this year – something to be celebrated. We are yet to receive school specific results, and will share these with families when we can.
Parent Opinion Survey
Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents/caregivers/guardians think of our school. The Parent/Caregiver/Guardian Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents/caregivers/guardians (previously known as the Parent Opinion Survey). It is designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of families’ perceptions of school climate, student behaviour, student engagement and experiences of remote and flexible learning. Schools use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies. Approximately 30 per cent of parents have been invited to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous. This year, the Parent/Caregiver/Guardian Opinion Survey will be open up to Friday 3rd September.
The survey will be conducted online, only takes 20 minutes to complete, and can be accessed at any convenient time within the fieldwork period on desktop computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones. The online survey will be available in a range of languages other than English. These include: Arabic, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Chin (Hakha), Hindi, Japanese, Somali, Turkish, Punjabi and Greek. The survey results will be communicated to parents/caregivers/guardians through annual reporting to School Council and the school newsletter.
