Assessment and reporting
Clear and timely reporting of your children’s achievements and progress at school is very important.
Your school and your children’s teachers will keep you updated of their progress during the year in a number of ways:
- parent-teacher interviews
- contacting you directly by telephone
- writing comments in student daily diaries
- formal reports.
Twice a year report cards are sent home with information about your children’s academic achievements as well as attitude, behaviour and effort. Their teacher also adds comments about their strengths and areas for improvements as well as a request for a parent interview if necessary. The reports are particularly helpful if you change schools.
