Curriculum Matters

The end of the school year will see all of our students up to Year 11 receive their Semester Reports in which students and parents receive a summary of their progress to date, feedback on what they have done well and how they can further improve. The content of these reports is a critical element in the academic and overall development of every student as well as our parents’ understanding of it.

At the beginning of next year our secondary students will be guided to review their reports and set a few key goals based on the feedback of their teachers to help them develop towards self-regulating life-long learners.

As we did in first semester, we will not be producing and posting home hard copy reports. Instead, we will produce the same reports, in the same format, as pdf files to be viewed by families online via our Portal.

For families who like to keep a hard copy of their child’s report, these reports can be downloaded to family computers and printed if desired. These reports will be available to families on Friday December 11 at 3pm and an email will be sent that day to inform you when they are open.

You can also access all of a student’s reports from their time at Tintern Schools, archived online for your easy reference.

To view these reports, please log in to MyTintern and go to the ‘Parent Services’ tab, then select the ‘Absences, Finance and Reports’ section and login to the Synergetic System. A summary view can be can be found under the ‘Results’ tab and the full pdf version of the reports can be found in the Documents tab. Please be aware that the report screen will take about 20 secs to load once you log in. Copies of the current and past reports in PDF format can be found under the ‘Documents’ tab. If you have any issues with logging in to the portal or locating your reports please call the IT helpdesk on 9845 7883. An email with a help sheet detailing report access has been sent out to all families of Prep – Year 11 families.

We hope you find this process straightforward and the reports an informative summation of your child’s achievement and progress this semester as well as useful material to help guide future learning.

As another busy year of teaching and learning (at least in a school context) comes to an end, I hope you all have a refreshing summer break and wonderful holiday season with friends and family.

Merry Christmas!
