    Principal’s report We are committed to working closely with parents to support student learning.

    SENTRAL The SMS student absence and lateness notification system to parents has been in operation for a number of weeks now and is proving highly effective. The vast number of parents receiving text notifications are responding almost immediately which ensures a student absence or lateness is justified promptly. I thank parents for engaging with this system so readily. We now have over 550 families signed up to Sentral. If you aren’t, please contact the school. It is worth remembering also that students learn best when they have a strong attendance pattern. It is understood that lateness to school can sometimes be unavoidable, however regular lateness is unacceptable as it disrupts lessons, teaching and student learning.

    THE LEARNING CENTRE The Learning Centre is staffed fulltime providing extra support to students each and every period of the school day. The recent addition of new furniture has ensured it is a welcoming and inviting area. Parents are able to ring the school and speak with the Learning and Support Teacher (LaST) or other members of the Learning Support Team (LST) if you would like to discuss further support for your child.

    PARENT/TEACHER EVENING

    It was fantastic to see the turnout of parents at the recent Year 7 – 9 P/T

    Evening despite the weather.

    BHS P & C

    Thank you to all who were able to attend the working bee last Sunday.

    Garden beds were remulched and are looking great and refreshed. We

    were waiting for the much needed rain and certainly got it.

    STUDENT AMENITIES

    We continue to further improve the students’ amenities and this week installed more seating for students in the main playground area. The students have welcomed the additional seating which looks different, allows them to sit together, and off the ground.

    Deputy Principal’s News Firstly my apologies for the late cancellation of the Year 12 parent information evening planned for Wednesday 5th June.

    Staff illness and personal circumstances meant it was not able to go ahead. It has been rescheduled for 20th August. More

    information will go out closer to the day.

    At the end of this term, our Year 9 students will be participating in the YAM program. This program is an evidence based

    program designed to equip young people with the skills needed to address mental health issues.

    Deputy Principal’s News FEEDBACK, TEACHING AND LEARNING Mid-year is one of those times when there is a focus on assessment and reporting. This is an important and busy season. Not only have students had in-class tests, assessment tasks and, in the case of Years 7 and 9 NAPLAN tests, but parents have also had progress interviews with teachers. Mid-year reports will be sent home in the next few weeks. These are all very important. Assessment of student learning and reporting to parents and students is crucial. These processes are designed to inform our teaching and our students’ learning. Assessments, including NAPLAN, provide valuable information that can help pinpoint areas requiring support and development. Prior to the recent NAPLAN tests I told students in Years 7 and 9 that rather than dreading the prospect they should welcome it, knowing that th
