Grade 5 Portfolio’s going home on Friday Nov 7th

Portfolio’s across the lower school will be going home at different times throughout the year. The first time that Grade 5 will be sending portfolio’s home will be on Friday 7th November. Portfolio’s are evidence of your child’s learning journey showcasing a mixture of process work, published work, assessments and more. Please set aside some time to conference with your child about their portfolio, as it is a great chance to have a dialogue about progress and learning.
