Interpreting the Term One Progress Report with your Child   

The Term One Progress Report provides a snapshot of your child’s application and attitude to their studies. It shows areas of strength and may highlight areas for development. The purpose of this report is to improve learning and provide a starting point for discussions with teachers at our upcoming Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings. We welcome and encourage all parents/guardians to meet with your son or daughter’s teachers. We strongly recommend students also attend so they can be involved in the discussions.   

Application to Study Ratings:    

These ratings are useful in discussing with your child his/her personal commitment and study habits towards the subjects being studied. These ratings highlight how a student is coping with the demands on their time, application to homework and assignments and the commitment towards personal application in the classroom.

Extra Curricular not on these Reports: 
There may be some Extra Curricular that your son/daughter has been involved in that may not be on this progress report at the time of completion, these will be on the next, more detailed report. 

Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings   

Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings will be held on Thursday 27 April and Tuesday 2 May from 3:30pm – 7:00pm. Meeting appointments are made by visiting Detailed instructions are on the following pages. The meeting time allocation is 10 minutes. If you require longer with a teacher, please make an alternative appointment for another day. If your child has 2 subjects with a teacher, please make a single appointment. Please only make a double appointment if your child has the same teacher for 3 or more subjects. 

Please note, some of our part-time teachers will only be available one of the evenings, or part of the two evenings. This is reflected in their availability on the booking system.  

Your attendance at Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings sends a powerful message to your child about the value you place on their education. If, on the Progress Report, a teacher has indicated ‘Interview required’, we ask that you make every effort to attend a meeting to discuss any concerns the teacher may have regarding your child’s progress in that subject.    

To further prepare for Parent Teacher Feedback Meetings, your child’s teachers have provided feedback for every subject on M.E.L. Through the M.E.L. Parent Portal, you are able to access your child’s assessment calendar, assessment tasks and view feedback the teacher has provided during the term.

Reminder – MEL App 
As per prior communications, the College has developed a MEL App to assist with easier access to the MEL portal. If you have not downloaded this yet, a reminder to do so as the College transitions to communication via our MEL platform rather than mediums such as SMS messages.  

If you have any queries regarding your child’s report, please direct this to the teacher in the first instance. 

We hope this report stimulates discussion about your son/daughter’s learning and that the break is an enjoyable time for your family.
