Lost Property

It’s that time of year again, when the students start to wear their jumpers to school when it is cold in the morning and then take them off as the day warms up. There is a lot of items in our lost property box at the moment. If your child has lost an item of clothing please come on in and check the box. It is really important that all items of clothing are clearly labelled as this ensures it can be returned.

Grade 3 Camp

This morning a very excited group of Grade Three students set off on their journey to Swan Hill. The group stopped at Robinvale for morning tea, then onwards to Swan Hill. They enjoyed lunch in the park then began their learning about life in the past at the Pioneer Settlement. During their visit, students will be experiencing pioneer school, butter churning, rope making, and a cruise on the PS Pyap and tonight will enjoy the amazing 'Heartbeat of the Murray Laser Spectacular’ on the river. Thank you to Miss Clarke, Mr McKenzie, Lynelle Logan and Karen Boulton for assisting on the camp. Students should return to MWPS Friday at approx. 4pm.

COMPASS CORNER

Your Child’s New Report

Your child’s next CAT (Common Assessment Task) report will be available this Friday afternoon. This assessment task will be a reading and writing task focused on “Response from text”.  So log on to view your child’s learning and the teacher’s assessment and feedback. We cannot reiterate the importance of engaging with what your child is learning at school.

N.B. Grade 5 student CAT Reports will be available next Thursday due to NAPLAN testing this week.

We’ve got Apps!

Don’t forget that you can log on at any time. It’s even easier using the Compass Apps. The Compass mobile app allows you to view student work on a phone or tablet rather than having to use a computer. Much more convenient! Visit the Google Play or Apple App store and search for Compass School Manager.

The website can still be accessed at http://mildurawestps.vic.jdlf.com.au

NAPLAN

Our Year Three and Five Students worked hard and gave their best effort. We were proud of the students’ attitude to the testing and their resilience over the three days. An individual report on the students’ achievement will be provided to schools around the middle of term three. 

Our School Self Evaluation & School Review

Great schools regularly evaluate their progress. They pause to reflect, undertaking a thorough analysis of the available data to reflect on how well the human, financial, physical and information resources of the school have been deployed to achieve the goals and priorities in the school’s strategic plan. Over the next 3 months we will be engaging in a great deal of reflection and evaluation. We will then have our School Review. The School Review is a 3 days process where many different stakeholders (parents/cares/staff/students/external school reviewer) will look very closely at our Self Evaluation and all aspects of our school. We will create a new Strategic Plan for the next 4 years.
