Communication: 

Progress Reports

In Terms 2 and 4 written progress reports are sent home with students. These reports show achievement and effort made by the students. 

Parent Teacher Meetings

The first of these meetings is held early in Term 1 providing an early opportunity for sharing information and expectations for students.  The second meeting is scheduled for the end of Term 2 following written progress reports.  Teachers are always willing to meet with parent/caregivers at any stage of the year at a time suitable to both parties.

Friday Books

These are work books sent home each Friday. They provide samples of work and an insight into topics currently studied.

Homework

At the commencement of each school year, class teachers outline to parents the requirement for homework and an indication of how parents can help in this area.

Friday Newsletter

The St Bernadette’s Friday Newsletter is published every week and sent home with the youngest member of the family. The newsletter keeps families informed about programmes and happenings at the school as well as providing lists of dates and news of upcoming events. The newsletter is also available on the school web site.

Absences

 Parents and caregivers are asked to contact the school by 9.00am if their child will be absent on that day.
