Assemblies are held every Wednesday afternoon in the school hall at 2:10pm unless a public holiday falls on the Wednesday.
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.
Parent Class Representatives
At the beginning of each year parents have the opportunity to nominate as a parent 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 require an interview with the principal or a teacher concerning their child's progress should make an appointment, by email 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 school newsletter is published fortnightly on an even week 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. Class newsletters are provided on even weeks with information particular to each class.
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 is a benefit to the students learning.
