Boneo Buzz: 11th June

Dear Parents and Carers,

As we come to the end of remote and flexible learning and our students return to school today I can’t thank you all enough for working alongside us as we experienced this latest period of remote learning. The overwhelming sense I have is one of gratitude to everyone in the Boneo Primary School community for the role that you have played in getting us through the last two weeks. I was thrilled to receive so many photos and anecdotes of children being resilient and sharing their learning. Every home setting is unique and we are so appreciative and in awe of the time, energy and efforts that our families have put into supporting the learning of our fantastic students. We would also like to thank our students for persevering with their learning during this time and for the progress that they have made. As I visited classes today, the children shared a piece of work they were most proud of.

Consistent with advice for the broader community, school staff must wear a face mask at school, unless an exception applies:

  • in all indoor spaces
  • in all outdoor spaces

Visitors and parents must also observe this guidance. Parents and carers are not permitted to enter the classroom at this stage but are welcome to drop off in the grounds and visit the Office. At the Office, all visitors will need to sign in using the QR code.

Student Reports

Please note that student reports will go live via Compass on Thursday 24th June. This report is designed to detail clear information about your child’s progress against the Victorian Curriculum.

At Boneo Primary School, student learning is implemented through the framework of the Victorian Curriculum. This curriculum is the common set of knowledge and skills required by students for life-long learning, social development and active and informed citizenship. This report acknowledges the importance of disciplinary knowledge, skills and understandings alongside general capabilities.

At Boneo we are committed to the explicit teaching of English and Mathematics. Inquiry units provide the framework through which much of the curriculum is delivered, integrating the following learning areas: Science; Humanities – History, Geography, Economics and Business, Civics and Citizenship; and Digital Technologies.

This year, we are excited to launch assessment against learner dispositions, which are general capabilities focusing on ‘how’ students are learning and the type of learner they are becoming.

The Learner Dispositions assessed are:

  • Self-management Skills
  • Communication Skills
  • Collaboration Skills
  • Thinking Skills
  • Research Skills

These skills are fundamental to learning and, in many cases, were particularly evident as students negotiated both virtual and face-to-face learning this semester. When we consciously engage young people in inquiring into how they learn, we are developing skills and dispositions that act as important assets to them as learners across the curriculum, in school and beyond. We hope the Semester 1 Report will assist in further strengthening our home-school partnership. We encourage you to discuss and share this Report with your child.
