New reporting initiatives in response to Remote Learning

Due to our return to remote learning, we will introduce two new reporting initiatives in Years 7 to 10 to replace the Term 3 Interim report. This will provide earlier feedback for students and parents. During Term 3, subject teachers will assess students’ online learning achievements in Week 4 and Week 9 and provide feedback on a formative or summative task in Week 5 and 9. Students will also assess their own online learning achievements in Week 4 and Week 9. The online learning achievements will replace the regular Classroom Learning Indicators reported on the Interim report. All feedback will be available on Siena Central in the usual manner.

Term 3 Subject Selection

The 2021 Subject Selection process has commenced with all year levels accessing the subject faculty videos and resources during Wellness periods, or Period 6 Catch Up for Year 10 students. The Subject Selection tile with all the relevant information is available on Siena Central for all parents and students.

The Year 9 and 10 Senior Pathways evening will be a virtual event held on Thursday, 30 July from 6.00pm to 7.45pm. Parents and students will be able to enter the Year 9 (Year 10 2021) and Year 10 (Year 11 2021) rooms via Zoom on the Subject Selection tile.

A Question Form on the Subject Selection tile enables parents and students to post questions prior to the evening. Year 9 and 10 Subject Interviews will occur this year via Microsoft Teams, when students will meet with a senior staff member to work through their 2021 Subject Selections.

All relevant dates are listed in a recent email sent to parents, and are also available on the Subject Selection tile on Siena Central.
