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 coming to an end as we see the half point of the calendar year approach. Assessment for the semester has been a big focus of this term, with students and staff working to the common goal of documenting and recording their learning. Semester 1 reports are being sent home this week. Congratulations to all students, families and staff who have worked with them to be successful this semester.
At the end of this term, we wish Amanda Kenna, Judith Coverdale and Gonzalo Gaces well as they embark on some long leave. They have contributed tirelessly to set students up for a great year.
In semester two we welcome new teachers, John Chew and Emma Schuberg to the team of people working with our students.
To all students, families and staff, have a well earnt break and stay safe. We look forward to seeing you for the start of Term 3 on Tuesday the 20th July
