Semester 1 2008

YEARS 1-6

Our school reports your child's achievement and progress with written reports twice a year and the opportunity for a follow up interview. This report is a report on your child?s progress for work assessed during Semester 1 using a variety of assessment strategies at your child?s Grade and Stage level.

You can ask the school to provide you with written information that clearly shows your child's achievement in the subject studied in comparison to that of other students in the child's grade at school. This information will show you the numbers of students in each of the achievement levels.
