Mrs Sandy Wheeler
Deputy Principal & Head of Junior School

You are invited to come along to the Parent Café next week for our first ‘Café Chat’ topic: Understanding your Child’s Academic Report

 The Café Chat series offers a unique chance to engage in relaxed, informal discussions with our staff on a variety of topics across the year. We sent a broadcast out recently inviting you to attend our first Café Chat which will be with Ms Lisa Hansford – the Director of Teaching and Learning in Junior School about the Reporting process.

Understanding your child's report is not just about analysing grades. It is more than that. It is understanding your child’s engagement in learning, their effort and attitude. At the heart of it, it’s about considering your child’s progress, celebrating their positive learning behaviours and reflecting on how to support them on their educational journey. We want you to be equipped and empowered with the knowledge and understanding to read school reports effectively so we can create strong partnerships together. As we partner together we can focus on the path forward - it is about their future!

 Date: Friday 14 June

Time: 8.30 – 9.30am

 I encourage Prep and Kindergarten parents to come along, especially if this is your very first time reading through an academic school report. Café Chat offers you a chance to understand the process more fully and ask any questions you may have.  

We will meet at the Parent Café in MRK so come and enjoy a hot drink or food beforehand. Please register your interest in attending using this link

I look forward to seeing you there!
