School / Home Partnerships
At Mount Clear Primary School we believe that the outcomes for our students are maximised through strong relationships between home and school. We provide a wide range of opportunities for parents to participate and become involved:
Class information and welcome sessions are held at the beginning of each year and term newsletters provide advice around events and programs specific to the year level. A school newsletter is published each week. Parents can elect to have the newsletter sent electronically. It can also be read directly from the website.
Teachers formally report to parents on student progress four times a year. Term 1 and 3 provide an opportunity for students to talk about their learning in conjunction with their parents and teacher through an individual student meeting. Written reports are provided at the end of terms 2 and 4. Parents are invited to make an appointment with their child’s classroom teacher should they wish to at any time.
Celebration of Learning
Our Friday morning assemblies provide weekly opportunity for community celebration of individual and group successes. Our year 6 students greatly enjoy organising and running assembly. We look forward to sharing the highlights of the week, including birthdays and students of the week with our wider school community. We hold many community events throughout the year, including a welcome BBQ at the beginning of the year, curriculum evenings, Education Week activities and a Christmas picnic celebration.
There are many opportunities for community members to be involved in the current and future directions of the school. Feedback at any time is highly valued. Classroom helpers are welcomed. There are opportunities to assist with reading and to accompanying groups on excursions. Assistance with our Brekkie Club is always greatly appreciated. There is opportunity to be part of school council, a member of a subcommittee or a part of our Parents and Friends group. Regular working bees are run by the School Council and parents enjoy getting together to improve our grounds and chat over a cup of tea and scones.
