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,
We are over half way through Term 3, with numerous highly engaging and successful learning activities happening both inside and outside of classrooms, many highlighted in this newsletter.
Year 12 students are in the midst of completing final assessment tasks, with many preparing for exams. Please continue to support them as they conclude their secondary schooling.
During Term 3, much effort goes towards planning for the 2018 school year, including transition visits for Year 9 students, which are well under way, and 2018 subject selections by the current Year 10 & 11 students.
A 2018 Information Evening is being held at the college from 5.30pm to 7.00pm in the theatrette on Wednesday 20 September. All are welcome to come along, meet the staff and tour the facilities.
Tony Collins — Principal
- Wed 20 Sep 2018 Information Evening in the theatrette from 5.30pm. Supper provided.
