Reading Your Child’s Report by Michael Grose
Each Semester at the end of Term 2 and Term 4 Student Reports are sent home.
Here at St Emilie’s we aim to help children to understand that reports are neither something to be feared …
or something to get overly excited about …
We explain to children that the report certainly gives some valuable information about their learning progress however we also reinforce that this isn’t ‘the whole picture’ and that learning improvement takes ongoing time, persistence, patience, practise, a positive attitude, effort and more!
Parents are asked to read the Michael Grose article above as it has some pearls of wisdom about keeping school reports in perspective and some advice as to how to support your child when it comes to report reading time.
We ask that you also read the note below which simply explains the newest version of the A-E GRADE DESCRIPTORS for all primary schools in WA.
Letter to Parents – School Report 2014
Many thanks to our wonderful Mum – Mrs Maneesha Free for her work in the school sustainable garden last week.
It’s very exciting – our beetroots and turnips are now ready!!
Thanks also to any parents who have also been assisting with the garden maintenance and to those who been purchasing some of our crops – delicious fresh herbs , lettuce and more!
Children are learning much about what it takes to grow food from a seed and the benefits of home-grown produce! Thanks to Mrs Cogger for overseeing the whole project and working with staff and children to make our sustainable gardens sustainable!
The soccer team played their best game of the year! After going into the half time break 0-0, we had a couple of early chances however St Munchin’s hit the front with an early goal. Then with about 10 mins to go, we were unlucky to concede a penalty and we went down 2 – 0.
Aedan had an amazing first half as our goalkeeper while Aiden, Sherwyn and Dylan a;so worked hard all day. A really top effort by all St Emilie’s players!
Mr Dan Naden
Both St.Emilie’s teams played very well yesterday.
Blue Team played extremely well and were excited to win their first match for the comp.
The Gold Team enjoyed a good win also.
All players showed great sportsmanship and were very gracious winners. Mrs Fowler and I are very proud of the girls’ attitude and desire to improve each week.
Miss Kara McHutchison
The team played extremely well. They were the first to the ball all game, they tackled well and they took plenty of great marks.
Despite all of our efforts, our inaccuracies cost us for much of the game. It took us until the last 5 minutes of the game to hit the lead with 2 quick goals from Will and Kobe. We had a number of minor injuries, however the boys showed some real determination and fortitude and as a team they worked so well together to claim their first win.
The St Emilie’s footy team defeated St. Munchins last Friday.
St Emilie’s: 3.13. 31
St Munchins: 2.4. 16
