‘Learning Journeys’ are a vital way to communicate students’ individual achievements. Students set a ‘Learning Goal’ at the start of each semester and these are laminated and placed on each student’s desk. Regular assessment is conducted over the semester before report time.
In Term 2 parents/carers are invited to take a ‘learning journey’ through their child’s classroom and bookwork. This is prior to a parent/teacher interview. Parents/carers have the option to have their child attend the interview too. New ‘Learning Goals are then set for Semester Two.
