Reports, Interviews & Examinations



REPORTS & INTERVIEWS

Students and parents receive a progress report near the end of Term One. These communicate information regarding students' attitude, effort and achievement to parents. This progress report is sent electronically to the email address provided on the enrolment application form.

A full school report is issued twice a year - at the end of Term Two and at the end of the school year. The Term Two report is sent electronically via email (as above), while the end of year report is printed in hard copy and posted home.

Parent-Teacher interviews are held twice yearly - in March and July after the issue of reports.

Where appropriate, from Years 7 to 10, other core and option subjects are tested in class, over one or two hours, at the same time of year.
