Reporting

At Box Hill North Primary School, we believe in involving students, parents and teachers in the reporting process closely. Each term parents are presented with an Individual Learning Journal (ILJ) which includes samples of work, student goals, teacher comments, personal development and self-reflection pages. In addition to this, a formal student progress report against the AusVELS curriculum in June and December of each year.

The formal reporting practices of the school include:

  • Parent / teacher meetings in February
  • Mid year written report and three way interviews with the teacher, parents and student
  • End of year report with parent/teacher interviews on request

More frequent contact with parents is facilitated if required to support the learning needs of a student. Effective communication between teachers and parents helps create effective learning experiences for students. Parents are encouraged and welcomed to discuss issues of concern with their child’s teacher, the Principal or Assistant Principal. General curriculum ideas can be shared at the Education Committee meetings.

Testimonials

It is refreshing that fathers are just as welcome as mothers in school life. From Kindergarten where I have the opportunity to participate in my youngest boy’s class to school camp that I was fortunate to attend, I have always been encouraged and warmly welcomed. I have also thoroughly enjoyed participating in class room help for all my boys.

The move into the grade 5/6 area which is separate from the rest of the school gives the kids a real sense of being the ‘big kids’ and is a start to their transition to secondary school and being more responsible.

The school garden is such a fantastic feature of our school. Garden Club students have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of gardening from the role of healthy soil to how to use silverbeet to make delicious pizzas. Science, nutrition and sustainability are explored in a truly hands on environment.
