title reporting

At the commencement of each term a curriculum outline is forwarded to all parents/guardians. Included within this outline are the term's focus areas for each curriculum area.

Formal Parent/Teacher conferences are scheduled late in Term 2 and again in late Term 4.

A formal written report is issued twice per year; once at the end of Term Two and a second report at the end of Term 4.

The formal reports include a comparison of the child's achievement against curriculum syllabus standards using a common grade scale; teacher's comments about the child's academic performance, and information about the child's social and personal development.
