All families have now had the opportunity to pass on valuable information during our Meet The Teacher sessions. Staff have enjoyed the process and found it invaluable. We encourage all parents/guardians to communicate regularly with their child's teacher. Our Preps are at school for a full week for the first time in 2017 and they have been making great progress.
This week, the classroom teachers have been meeting with each other to analyse data to better differentiate the learning of the students. While data is sometimes an assessment or test it can also be samples of work. It is usually taken before a unit of work to guide learning and afterwards, to measure growth.
Last Wednesday, the school staff together with students, Ethan & Charlotte (School Captains) and parents (Donna , Brendan and Trevour) to complete a draft of a new Vision Statement for Galilee. A Vision Statement can be defined as a document that provides a focus for current and future direction. We have greatly valued input from students, staff and parents and will publish the Vision Statement once completed.
