Our Senior School Athletics (Grades 3-6) will be held on Thursday, 31st May at the La Trobe Athletics track, Flora Hill. Please note that this is earlier in the year than usual. The track is currently being upgraded and resurfaced and I believe that we will be the first school to use the new facilities. More information, including event times, will be sent home in the coming weeks. Read more...

Attitude to School Survey

Friday, 18 May 2018

We value student voice as a means to improving student engagement, wellbeing and quality instruction and are conducting a survey to find out what your child thinks of our school. The Attitudes to School Survey is an annual student survey offered by the Department of Education and Training to assist schools in gaining an understanding of students' perceptions and experience of school. Our school will use the survey results to plan programs and activities to improve your child's schooling experience.

Students from year levels 4 to 6 at our school will participate in the survey. Your child will complete the survey online during school hours using a purpose built secure online survey tool. It is important to note that we are not in any way “testing” your child. Your child has the right to refuse or withdraw from the survey at any point before, during, or after completion of the survey.

Your child will be provided with a unique login to complete the survey. The student login is an assigned identifier that may be used to link data for statistical and research purposes only. All responses to the survey are kept anonymous in the response file. Personal identification data will not be recorded in the survey response file. This ensures that the confidentiality of your child’s responses is protected at all times. This year the Attitudes to School survey will be conducted at our school.

 The survey results will be reported back to the school before the end of Term 2. All survey data that is made available in reports are for groups of students only so that no individual student can be identified. Data suppression rules are used for schools with low student numbers per year level. If you would like more information, please speak to your child’s teacher or visit this link .
