End of Term Reports
At the end of term all students will receive a Progress Report summarising briefly their progress for the year to date. Both subject teachers and pastoral leaders will give feedback about the student’s achievement, attitude and effort in class.
Parent Teacher Interviews
On the afternoons of Thursday 3rd May and Tuesday 8th May and Parent Teacher Interviews will be held in the Gym. Parents and Carers are encouraged to meet with their child’s subject teachers to gain more detailed information about individual student progress.
Parents of those students who have an ‘interview requested’ on their Term Report must ensure that an interview is booked with that teacher.
Meeting times can be booked using the online booking system (PTOnline). Using this system enables parents and carers to book the interview time from any internet- connected computer. Parents were emailed the details on Thursday 5th April about how they can receive their parent login details from the PTOnline web site.
Parents who have not lodged an email contact address with the College were posted a letter with details on Tuesday 3rd April. Parents are asked to please contact the school if they do not receive this information.
On the night a map of teacher locations will be posted outside the gym. Meeting times will be 5 minutes. Bookings can be made up to 12 noon on the day of the interviews.
If you encounter any problems using PTO please notify the school office, preferably via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 62581055.

The testing period has been lengthened this year to enable the tests to be done online in the ACT. Year 7 will do the tests on their IPads and Year 9 on their laptops.
This testing program provides vital information to schools and educational systems to support students with their learning and development. Please do not schedule appointments or make any other arrangements that will interfere with these tests.
If you require further information about the tests or you feel that your child will not be able to participate in the testing program, please contact me, via email, at email@example.com. Further information is available on the NAPLAN website at the following address: http://naplan.edu.au/
