Student Parent Teacher Conferences

Thank you for your support at the recent Student/Parent/Teacher Conferences. It was great to hear that many students ran the discussion about their learning. In fact, over 90% of interviews were run by students.

It was also pleasing to see that the Student Self Reflection sheet was so well utilised. I now encourage students to work towards achieving their Term 2 goals with a focus on effectively using class and home time. I also welcome any parent feedback regarding the Student Parent Teacher Conferences via email at dpoffice@ignatius.vic.edu.au


The National Assessment Program – Literacy and Numeracy (NAPLAN) tests for Year 7 and 9 students will be held on Tuesday 11 May, Wednesday 12 May and Thursday 13 May 2021. The NAPLAN tests are conducted by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA) on behalf of the Australian Curriculum, Assessment and reporting Authority (ACARA). These tests will be held in the Old Gym during the normal school day.

Each test will take approximately 40 to 65 minutes for students to complete. Year 7 and 9 parents and students will receive more details via XUNO.
