Academic Matters: Term 1 Week 4

Academic Matters: Term 1 Week 4

As I mentioned in enews last time, Year 7 and 8 students participated in the Elevate program. The students gave feedback to the presenters and one of the questions asked was: “What was the most important thing you learned today?” 

Below a variety of comments from the students:

  • I learnt a lot of tips that will be really useful this year and in years to come
  • How to still have a social and sporting life and still get work done
  • To work at a clean desk
  • Remember things by putting them into a story
  • The phone should be off
  • To always put objects in familiar places and test yourself without prompts
  • How to use colour in my notes and pick key words

All students at Scotch have access to a range of practice questions, presenter tips and a copy of Elevate’s best-selling study guide through using the student portal. The premium password is ‘rondo’ and this grants them access to all premium resources. Students can tailor their experience and save their preferences by creating a profile on the website.


SACE Reminders

Students in the Senior School can check their SACE subjects (Stage 1 and 2) through the following students online. To login students need their SACE registration number and also a PIN – the PIN is a four digit number, birthdate (day and month).  I suggest that students go to the site to check their postal address. If the address needs to be updated then please contact, Mark Horley SACE coordinator.

Three of our Fashion students from last year – Piper Delbridge, Maddy Nunan and Claudia Dare have all had their garments featured on the SACE Materials Products gallery see here. This is a fantastic achievement for the students in the first year of a new course.


Continuous Reporting

By now students should have settled into their subjects, and assessments have now started in all subject areas. Next week students will have feedback in seqta about the subjects that they are studying at all year levels. Parents of Year 7 students visited classes last week. The students and teachers demonstrated how they use seqta in the classroom, showing how visible the learning is for all.


PIVOT – Feedback for our teachers

Next week all students will start the PIVOT process. This process is where we collect data from students based on the Australian teaching standards and helps to inform our professional learning which is evidence -based. This is the fourth year that we have participated in the survey, and all teachers form Year 3 – 12 will be involved.
