Sharing our Learning

There are many ways we share and celebrate our learning at St Joseph’s School. We believe learning is an ongoing process and, as such, we provide both formal and informal opportunities for parents to share in their child’s learning journey.

Curriculum Overviews

Our Curriculum Overviews demonstrate how teachers at St Joseph’s plan and implement the Australian and Religious Education Curriculums in response to students’ diverse needs, interests and prior knowledge. Our Primary Learning Leader works in partnership with teachers as they plan, deliver, assess and report student learning throughout the course of the year.

Teaching teams construct Curriculum Overviews early each term. Click here to see our current Curriculum Overviews.

Written Reports

Twice yearly teachers reference student learning against the Australian Curriculum Year Level Achievement Standards using a five-point scale.

Student-Led Conferences

These are an opportunity for students to share their learning successes with their parents and teachers following their formal written report. Through this conference teachers, students and parents collaboratively set learning and social goals for the coming semester. If at other times through out the year parents or teachers another conference is required this can be arranged.

Parent Information Evenings

At the beginning of each school year the teaching community shares with parents their hopes and expectations for their class for the coming year.

Celebration of Learning Days

Parents and friends are welcomed into our classrooms for our Celebration of Learning days where we share the learning that is occurring. These are an informal opportunity for members of our community to view learning in context throughout the school.

Assemblies, Masses and Liturgies

Within the Religious Life of our School we gather for different occasions to celebrate, reflect and acknowledge special events and achievements within our community.

Specialist Teachers

Students’ learning from their specialist lessons are celebrated through activities such as sporting carnivals, Gala days, Celebration days and Arts projects.
