REMINDERS TO STUDENTS

* Grade 2 for an assignment is not a failing grade. The descriptor for a Grade 2 states that a student is "Beginning in Learning" and the following are the statements that describe what this means.
  • Inconsistent or inaccurate understanding of knowledge, skills and concepts with many gaps
  • Applies learning in familiar contexts only with assistance
  • Communicates learning only with assistance
Grade 1 is a failing grade as the descriptor states: No Learning has taken place there has been no understanding of knowledge, skills and concepts

* Students who have lockers in the A wing ground floor need to make sure they pick up their stuff from lockers by 3:30pm on Friday 1st April. After this it will be difficult to access lockers because COTW planners will be placing tables against the lockers for COTW set up on Saturday.
