Responsibilities of Parties
Teachers are required to:
• Ensure that each student is issued with a subject Assessment Plan by Week 4 of each course outlining formative and summative assessments appropriate to the subject and year level
• Ensure that all summative assessments are provided in writing to students with due date, task requirements, word length, weighting and assessment criteria clearly indicated
• Negotiate with students if homework cannot be completed by the due date (due to ill health, family/personal problems, other extraordinary commitments and/or extenuating circumstances)
• Explain to students the consequences of not completing homework on time and if appropriate impose and supervise catch-up sessions/detentions for students who do not comply
• Contact a parent/guardian by telephone or in writing when a student repeatedly fails to complete homework and each time a summative assessment task is not completed by the due date.
Students are required to:
• Allocate appropriate time to undertake personal study and complete all homework as set course.
• Independently and regularly revise work covered in class.
• Negotiate prior to the due date with each teacher if tasks cannot be completed by the due date.
Students should also:
• Learn to plan their work taking into account family, sporting, cultural and/or employment commitments and social activities as well as the commitment required for assessment timelines.
• Recognise that some subjects have more homework demands than others but that one subject should not receive so much time that others are neglected.
• Discuss any problems they have with homework or study plans with an appropriate person (e.g. parents, Mentors, subject teachers, Career Advisers, Managers, an Assistant Principal and / or the Principal).
Parents are asked to support the College by:
• Facilitating a student’s sound study habits.
• Providing notice to a subject teacher (by telephone, email or note) of any reason's for a student’s homework not being completed by the due date.
Dear parents & community members,
Term 2 is already nearly half way over with students engaging in a wide range of learning activities. Mid-term work completion reports for Year 10 –12 students have been posted home. Please discuss these with your student and follow-up with teachers any issues, so that student achievement is optimised and all are well prepared for upcoming exams.
Congratulations Juice and Ceenah on winning Best Band and Best Solo Artist at the 2018 NT Battle of the School Bands recently. Ceenah also took out Runner Up for Best Song. Well done to everyone involved, Juice (Felise Naufahu, Ricky Bloomfield, Tjamiwa Presley, Shawn Foster and Brodie Roesch) and Ceenah (Riana Naufahu), all head back to Darwin this weekend to perform alongside national artists
including Paul Kelly, at the Territory’s biggest music event, BASS IN THE GRASS. What an outstanding opportunity to continue the
development of their musical talents.
Great thanks and congratulations to families of students and College staff who have taught, assisted and supported Juice & Riana over the last years, in particular Music Teacher Genevieve O’Loughlin & Rob Ward.
