A reminder about the assessment of achievement used by schools in NSW for grades 1-6;
Outstanding: The student has an extensive knowledge and understanding of the content and can readily apply this knowledge. In addition, the student has achieved a very high level of competence in the processes and skills and can apply these skills to new situations.
High: The student has a thorough knowledge and understanding of the content and a high level of competence in the processes and skills. In addition, the student is able to apply this knowledge and these skills to most situations.
Sound: The student has a sound knowledge and understanding of the main areas of content and has achieved an adequate level of competence in the processes and skills.
Basic: The student has a basic knowledge and understanding of the content and has achieved a limited level of competence in the processes and skills.
Limited: The student has an elementary knowledge and understanding in few areas of the content and has achieved very limited competence in some of the processes and skills.
Students in Kindergarten are assessed on a three level system;
Working Beyond: The student's skills, knowledge and understanding of their class work is more extensive than the level expected at this stage of Kindergarten. In addition the student applies these independently, with effective results.
Achieving: The student's skills, knowledge and understanding of their class work are at the level expected at this stage of Kindergarten. The student attempts to apply these in the classroom, with some independent success.
Working Towards: The student's skills, knowledge and understanding of their class work, is below the level expected at this stage of Kindergarten. Progress is causing some concern and additional support is being given.It is important to understand these levels and what that means for your child's progress in the curriculum. If you have any questions about these levels please reach out to your stage Assistant Principal's.
Week 10 Activities
Please look out in the calendar for details on all the amazing events we have in our final week of school this year. We hope to see our parents and carers during this last week as we say goodbye to 2023, including our farewell to Year 6 on Friday 15 December.
Best Start 2024
Online booking information for parents was sent out via email this week with the dates and times for the Best Start assessments next year. Please make a time for your child’s interview. We look forward to welcoming your child to Drummoyne Public School.
Early next week three classes will relocate to new classrooms to enable the movement of student furniture in preparation for 2024 classes. Students will remain in these classrooms for the last few days of term. This may mean that your child will be dismissed from another classroom next week.
