Learning Behaviours

Often in education, and schooling, end results are a focus. Results such as the completion of a VCE or VCAL Certificate, or an exam result or end of semester progression point are of significant interest. I understand the interest in these final or summative results. It is also important that we encourage students to focus on the learning behaviours which in many ways lead to the final outcomes. On the upcoming Cycle 1 Report will be feedback to students on particular learning behaviours which the College values.  These learning behaviours are:

  • Collaborates well with students and teachers
  • Demonstrates self-regulation to work independently
  • Displays initiative to improve learning
  • Responds to feedback with positive action
  • Uses effective organisation strategies
  • Completes work on time

 

These learning behaviours are very important.  I encourage parents to discuss with their child their progress in developing these learning behaviours and then perhaps continue the conversation at the upcoming student progress meetings.

The dates for Term 3 student progress meetings are:

  • Thursday 5 September (2pm – 8pm)
  • Wednesday 18 September (2pm – 8pm)

The online booking system will open at 6pm on Thursday 22 August.  Cycle 1 Reports will be published on Wednesday 21 August.

 

Subject Selection for 2020

Thanks to all parents for their involvement with the 2020 subject selection process. This week we have conducted nearly 1100 subject selection meetings.

Next Tuesday we have the Year 10 2020 subject selection meetings at Officer Campus.

Next Wednesday we have the Year 10 2020 subject selection meetings at Berwick Campus.

We look forward to the conversations which will take place next week between students, parents and teachers about plans the students have for the future and how we can collectively support the students to achieve their best.

 

Blessings for the next fortnight!
