Learning Journals

The learning journals are part of the school's method of reporting to parents at regular intervals. The learning journal is not a test book, but contains samples of work with annotated comments and a general comment that help parents monitor their child's progress. The learning journalwill be sent home twice a year, they are measured against the New Zealand Curriculum, literacy and numeracy progressions and National Standards criteria.

Your written comments at the end of each set of samples will be a valued communication with the class teacher.

Should you observe any change in your child's progress please ask for an opportunity to discuss your concern with your child's teacher, or the Principal. Staff are happy to meet with you at any convenient time to discuss your child's progress and development.
