Ongoing Assessment and Student Reports
While this year has been different in many ways, our teachers continue to assess student learning as a part of our ongoing assessment and teaching cycle. Teaching teams meet each week to review assessment tasks which includes what students can make, write, say and do in learning activities. This information is used as the basis of planning for the next week so that students are being taught at their point of need.
Our teachers are also in the process of writing the Semester 2 reports which reflect some of the adjustments made to curriculum programs during remote learning. Based on advice from DET, the school reports will focus on:
- The Specialist program of Art, Music, PE and Mandarin
Progression points will only be provided for Maths and English and will highlight the progress that your child has made over the last 12 months.
The reports will include a description of what was taught throughout the semester. They will outline what your child has achieved and their next learning steps.
The Semester 2 reports will be available to you via Compass on Monday the 14th of December.
Keeping Everyone Healthy at School
Thank you for supporting the health of our school community by following the current advice from DET and DHHS advice which states that if a child has any of the following, however mild, they must not attend school:
- Fever, Chills or sweats
- Sore throat
- Shortness of breath
- Runny or stuffy nose
- Loss of sense of smell or taste
- Vomiting and/or Diarrhoea
If a child presents with any of these symptoms, we will call you so that you can take them home until they are well. We will ask you to phone the office when you arrive so that a staff member can bring your child to you. We understand that this is asthma and hay fever season so please see your local doctor for a plan to help your child manage their symptoms. We appreciate your help with this so that we can keep our school community healthy.
Road Safety Around the School
We have had calls from members of the public who have expressed concern about the safety of some of our students when they are crossing the road before and after school. Please talk to your children about road safety and ensure that they use the school crossing and the pedestrian traffic lights. We also remind you to drive carefully around school during drop off and pick up time.
Further information about road safety for children can be accessed from this link to the TAC website.
Banyule 2020 Children’s Gift Appeal
We will be collecting quality new toys at school during November as a part of the 2020 Children’s Gift Appeal. Your children can bring these in their school bags and bring them to the office. Alternatively, please call the school office so that you can speak to the team about dropping off your donation to the front of the school. All donations must be received by Friday the 27th of November to allow for the processing and distribution of all gifts in line with COVID-19 protocols.
