Term 3 Learning Journey

Learning Journey provides an opportunity for students to take an active role in the communication of their learning to their families and carers. It allows our school community to celebrate and reflect together on what has been achieved and think about what learning can take place next. Parents, family members and carers are invited to visit classrooms and learn about the wonderful work our students have been doing.

Your child may take you to some of the "Talking Points" around the classroom and school to share and explain their learning experiences with you.  They might show you work that is on display or in their books that they are proud of. If you have more than one child at Campbell Primary in grades K-6 you may choose to visit each child's class separately within the time given, or go together with all of your children.

Please listen and ask questions, such as:

  • What did you learn when you did this?
  • Did you enjoy doing this activity?
  • Did anyone work on this with you?

At Learning Journey families will be asked to complete a form '3 Stars and a Wish'. The form asks families to note 3 things that their child is doing well, and 1 area for further development/improvement. This will provide teachers with valuable feedback and will help inform future planning and teaching. For families who are unable to attend Learning Journey a '3 Stars and a Wish' form will be sent home for you to complete and return. We would appreciate families completing these forms and returning them to your child's teacher as promptly as possible so that with your feedback we can continue working to improve your child's learning at Campbell Primary.

Please note that Learning Journey is not the appropriate time for an individual interview.  If you would like to request an interview please contact your child's teacher to make arrangements for a mutually convenient time.

Canteen Online Ordering is Here!

Begins Today 26th August 2014.

Our school has now introduced a great new online ordering system for the canteen called FlexiSchools. This system allows parents, students and staff to place orders from home, work or school at any time via the website or school app. The payment is also done online, so less paper bags, cash, cheques, and envelopes are sent via your student to school. As well as being convenient for parents, the online orders are much faster and easier for the school coordinator to process - so it makes everyone's life a little easier.  FlexiSchools is well established and tested, operating in hundreds of schools across Australia.

Getting online is easy and only takes a few minutes to register. Simply go to FlexiSchools (http://www.flexischools.com.au/) and click "Register Now". You will be sent an email with further instructions on how to complete the registration. Once registered, you can start placing orders immediately. If you have any questions, FlexiSchools provide a great help desk on 1300 361 769, or you can contact them via their website.

There are a variety of payment options supported, including Visa, Mastercard (credit and debit) and Bank Transfer. The system operates via a pre-paid account, so you no longer have to worry about the manual process of sending payments into school, and you can easily budget your students spending and expenses throughout the year.

The system is now available to set up your family account and first online orders will be for Tuesday 26th August, so we look forward to seeing your next order online!

If you have any questions about the online services we are introducing, please contact Brenda Sebastian, Volunteer Canteen Co-ordinator on brenda@pcug.org.au or see our canteen page for more info.
