Academic Matters: Week 9

Academic Matters: Week 9

Students over the last few weeks have been getting their final assessment pieces together for their Stage 2 courses, so it’s a very busy time of the year. Next week as part of the study program to assist year 12s the final session from Elevate Education called, ‘The Finishing Line’ will be offered on Wednesday September 27 from 3.45pm until 4.45pm. This session will concentrate on overcoming weaknesses in the lead up to exams, the role of exam study groups, stress management techniques and study routines for swotvac and the holidays. Students can be signed up here

Next Friday 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. Heads of Faculty changed the effort ratings this year to four categories, concentrating on the level of engagement, homework and organisation.

Feedback from students

Earlier this term students from Year 5 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 second 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.
