Around the Primary

Dear Parents

As you are aware, all students from Year 1 to Year 6 receive a report at the end of Term Two and Term Four. Each student will receive a grade for the different Learning Areas that appear on their school report. The teacher's role is to make valid, fair and reliable judgements of student learning based on the standards from the WA Curriculum Framework and the Australian Curriculum.

The notes below explain the newest version of the A-E Grade Descriptors for all primary schools in Western Australia.

Achievement for each grade on the student report will be represented as:

A
Excellent

The student demonstrates excellent achievement of what is expected for this year level.

B
High

The student demonstrates high achievement of what is expected for this year level.

C
Satisfactory

The student demonstrates satisfactory achievement of what is expected for this year level.

D
Limited

The student demonstrates limited achievement of what is expected for this year level.

E
Very low

The student demonstrates very low achievement of what is expected for this year level.

We also explain to children that the report certainly gives some valuable information about their learning progress and we reinforce with them that learning improvement takes persistence, patience, practice and, of course, a positive attitude.

Our Primary reports will be posted home during the holidays and I trust you will enjoy you will reading your child's report and celebrating with them their learning journey for Semester One.

Kind regards,

Antoinette De Pinto
Head of Primary

PRIMARY NEWS IN BRIEF

Our PrePrimary children thoroughly enjoyed celebrating a special Prayer Reflection with their parents in the chapel.

Sensei Aghdasi and Mrs Fontaine were very impressed with the language skills and the good manners displayed by the Year 5G students at a Japanese restaurant during this week.

Thank you to Father Wilson and the children from 2G for preparing today's lovely liturgy. The students confidently shared their prayers, sang beautifully and behaved most reverently in the chapel. They set a wonderful example for us all. It was also terrific to see Mrs Haines and meet baby Harper.
