Learning and Teaching

Over the first few weeks of Term 3 we held our Virtual Senior Pathways Evening and the students have all participated in their Subject Selection Interviews, mostly via Teams. It has been a wonderful effort on the part of the administration staff, teaching staff, students and parents alike. We welcome any feedback on the process.

The videos and documentation in our Subject Selection tiles have been a valuable resource for students and parents. Many thanks to everyone who participated in the Virtual Senior Pathways Information Evening. There were great questions and dialogue and we came away from this new format feeling that it had been a wonderful success.

The final date for submission of Subject Selection Forms for 2021, has come and the response from our students has been excellent. My thanks to Mitchell Soon, our Timetabler and the Heads of Learning who have fielded questions and kept everyone on track.

We are well and truly immersed in the online learning experience now and we ask you to encourage your daughters to keep up their attendance and engagement. It is a challenging new way of classroom teaching for schools that requires more self-discipline and creativity from both teacher and student. Siena College continues to make sure that our approach is holistic and takes all elements of wellbeing and excellence in learning into account.

We are currently examining the delivery of the Parent Teacher Interviews and how we will best achieve this in an online capacity. Information on the process will be communicated in the weeks to follow.
