NCCD – Nationally Consistent Collection of Data

Attached below is an information document from the Diocese of Sale Catholic Education Limited (DOSCEL) which outlines to parents and carers the NCCD.  This year there will be a change in the way the College will be funded for the support of students who require their learning program to be adjusted in response to a disability.  Our Learning Enhancement Team are preparing the College submission for this data collection at the moment.  I encourage you to read the attached document from DOSCEL as well as the other attached document which summarises the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.  We are positive about the changes as we feel that this is a better model for identifying and supporting those students who require learning adjustment.  For any questions, please contact Stephen Bourke, Learning Enhancement Team Leader.

Curriculum Review Outcomes Implementation

I would like parents to know that teachers are working really hard to plan for the implementation of the Curriculum Review outcomes.  Teachers are working in teams to determine the details of courses and programs. There are many exciting opportunities being prepared for students.  The main outcomes will be more deliberate and purposeful pathways for all students.

Staff Retreat Day

Please note that a Catholic identity based professional learning day is calendared for Tuesday 28 August.  This is a student free day.

St Francis Xavier Day

St Francis Xavier Day is celebrated on 15 August.  We look forward to celebrating all that is great about this faith filled learning community.  This is a compulsory day for students.  Attendance at this day will be recorded on the Cycle 3 Report and will be considered for various College based privileges including student leadership.  May St Francis Xavier Day be a positive day of celebration for the College!
