Academic Matters: Term 1 Week 10


5 April 2018

Academic Matters: Term 1 Week 10

Academic Matters: Term 1 Week 10

The last week of term will have many of our senior students completing assessment pieces.

There have been many formative pieces of work throughout the term and now is the time for consolidation of concepts with more formalised tests and investigations. It can be a very busy week but as long as students are well prepared with a study program in place, asked their teachers for help then they should achieve good grades.

Year 10s were provided with information about their Morrisby testing on Tuesday night. Barry Darnell’s presentation will be available on the website for those who could not attend the evening. As a follow up, Careers Counsellors: Belinda Sorensen and Mark Kelly will talk to each student about their profiles. All Year 10s will attend the Tertiary Studies and Careers Expo at the Convention Centre on April 9. This will give students opportunities to talk to industry experts in many fields, as well as representatives from local and interstate universities, and the TAFE sector.

On Friday April 13 interim reports will be available for you to download. The interim report serves as a snapshot of academic progress, represented by a grade and an effort rating to study. Effort ratings have four categories, concentrating on the level of engagement, homework and organisation.

Feedback from students

Earlier this term students from Year 3 to 12 have provided feedback for our teachers around the five Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) standards. These five standards are:

  • Standard 1: Know students and how they learn
  • Standard 2:  Know the content and how to teach it
  • Standard 3: Plan for and implement effective teaching and learning
  • Standard 4: Create and maintain safe and supportive learning environments
  • Standard 5: Assess, provide feedback and report on student learning

This is the third year of this process and I am pleased to report that the students once again, have said that the teachers are knowledgeable about what they teach, they are treated with respect and that they feel comfortable asking for help. This is really important as it reinforces what we say and do as a College in that relationships are at the heart of what we do.

That's a wrap on Term 4 and 2019! Enjoy the summer break and have a happy and safe Christmas!
