Work Experience students

At the end of Term 2 we hosted thirteen Year 10 work experience students. Many of them were previous Greenvale Primary students and came from various Secondary schools. A big thank you to the teachers who accepted and mentored the students. We are also grateful for the work and assistance these students gave during their stay.

Congratulations Ms D’Angelo

The year 6’s celebrated the engagement of Ms D’Angelo with a surprise party today. Year 6 students are very good at keeping a secret as she was totally unaware that anything was going on.

Results: Parent Homework Survey 2017

Thank you to the 136 parents who responded. Great to see that we have so many interested parents. The Survey Monkey, however, only collated the first 100 responses for us. With such a fabulous response, we will upgrade the Survey Monkey for any future surveys sent home to allow inclusion of all responses.
The survey responses were spread fairly evenly from parents with an eldest child right across the various year levels of our school.

It was interesting to note that not all parents thought that homework was important for improving their child’s learning.Of all the homework tasks that parents felt were most relevant, Reading came in at number one with 84 parents agreeing, followed by Number facts with 61 parents agreeing. Most parents felt that between 15 to 30 minutes of homework was sufficient, with 13 % stating that no time should be given to homework at all. Not surprisingly, in response to Question 5 – “Does your child enjoy doing homework?”, 73 % of parents indicated Sometimes to Not at All. Views on whether homework should be compulsory were shared fairly evenly across the board ranging from Not Compulsory to Compulsory.

We intend to use the feedback from

LAST DAY TERM 4 – Friday 16th at 3:30pm

Dear parents,

Please note that the final day of term 4 is this Friday (the 16th), and the finishing time is 3:30pm.

There’s no 1:30pm finish this year as Tuesday is technically the last day of term, however we have curriculum days on Monday and Tuesday.

Best wishes for the holiday period! See you in 2017.
