Communication

At Trinity Catholic School communication is vital between the home and the school.

There are various ways that we endeavour to inform parents of what is happening, up coming events and how their children are progressing at school.

Diary Sheet

Kindergarten to Year 3 take home a Diary Sheet in their Reading Folders each Monday.

The Diary Sheet has the weekly calendar that lists everything that is happening that week. There is also space for teachers and parents to write questions, queries or comments.

The Diary Sheet goes home each day and is read and signed by the classroom teacher each morning.

School Diary

Years 4 - 6 have a school diary which is purchased from the School Office at the beginning of the year. This works the same way as the diary sheet, although the students have the reponsibility of writing the events of the week into their diaries. They also write their homework for each day. Teachers check and sign the diaries each day.

Parent Information Night

In the beginning of Term One each classroom teacher hosts a Parent Information Night. As well as an opportunity for parents to meet new teachers and for teachers to meet new parents, this forum enables teachers to outline the curriculum for the year, homework expectations, Pastoral Care initiatives such as the Merit system and general classroom organisation and routines.

Three Way Conversations

In Week One, Term Three parents, students and teachers participate in Three Way Conversations. This is an opportunity for students to discuss their goals that are set at the beginning of the year. Parents are able to visit the classrooms and look at the child's work, discuss the progress of their child's goals and be informed by the teacher of their child's academic and social progress. Teachers are able to offer the students possible ways to achieve their goals or suggestions for new goals, according to their progress.

Interim Reports

Each student receives an Interim Report at the end of Term One.

This is a report about the student's study habits , behaviour and social skills. Parents or teachers may request an interview at this time.

Semester Reports

At the end of Semester One( Term 2) and Semester 2( Term 4) each student receives a Semester Report.

This is a detailed assessment of the student's achievement across the seven Key Learning Areas.

Teachers include comments in Religious Education, English and Mathematics to clarify grades and offer suggestions as to how the student may improve. Parents are able to request an interview with the teacher after receiving the Semester Report.
