Assemblies are held every Monday afternoon in the School Hall at 2:20pm unless a public holiday falls on the Monday.
Presentations from classes and special groups are made on a regular basis. They may be about work done during the past few weeks, or a concert type performance. Students also share general school notices and reports.
Each week, Student of the Week and “Gotcha” Awards are presented.
Parents are most welcome at all assemblies. Attendance is greatly appreciated by the students.
At the beginning of each year parents have the opportunity to nominate as a “class representative”. The role of this person has been developed over time, and this role serves as a vital link in the communication process among the school community members.
Parents who want an interview with the principal or a teacher concerning their child's progress should make an appointment, by note or phone, for a mutually convenient time.
We strongly encourage parents to discuss their children's work and talk over any problems that might arise, as the interest of parents most often strengthens the child's progress. Interviews with class teachers should be made outside of class instruction time to prevent disruption to others.
The newsletter is published fortnightly on a Wednesday and provides up-to-date information about the school, Education Queensland directions and goals, reports from classrooms, photos, Student of the Week Awards, and dates to remember.
Children are assessed continuously throughout the year. Progress reports are issued at the end of each semester (June and December) for all students from Prep to Year 6. Parent interviews are arranged at the end of term one (April) and three (September) Parent interviews can also be conducted by mutual arrangement between the class teacher and parent.
Parents are encouraged to consult with class teachers throughout the year, especially if there are concerns in some areas. Support and supervision of work at home will often solve small problems or concerns.
