A Reminder that the Junior Prize Giving will be held in the Hall this Friday 9th December. The event starts at 10am but prize winners must be in their seats by 9.45. At this time we remove the names of absent students form the announcers’ lists, so students not seated by this time will not receive their award at the event. You will have been notified, by email or letter, if our daughter or son has been awarded a prize. We aim to finish the event at midday; before and after the Prize Giving you are invited to view the Junior Art Display in the foyer.
In addition to the special awards, prizes are awarded for exceptional application, outstanding achievement and significant progress, and the school values all of these equally.
Term 3 Junior Learner Awards
The scheduled assembly for presenting the Term 3 Junior Learner Awards was just after our last newsletter was compiled, so this is the first chance we have had to publicise the award winners.
Two Junior Learners were selected for each core class by Heads of House after they consulted with Core and Option Teachers. Awards can be made for a number of reasons, for instance, because a student has enhanced the learner of others in the class or because of exceptional progress, achievement or effort.
There are no Junior Learner Awards for Term 4, but in the Junior Prize Giving Outstanding Learner Awards are given out; these celebrate learning over the whole year.

Term 4 Junior Learner Reports
The final set of Junior Learner Reports for 2016 will be emailed out just after the end of term. As usual the Junior Learner Reports contain two elements which are equally important, the Learner Dispositions (organisation,effort and conduct) and the Learning Outcomes specific to each particular subject.
This set of reports focus on learning over Term 4, they are not a summary of learning over the whole year.
Over the summer please spend some time comparing your son or daughter's four Junior Learner Reports form this year, discussing their progress over the year with them, and helping them to set goals for 2017.
SMART goals are a useful way to frame this discussion. SMART goals are Specific, Measurable, Agreed-upon, Realistic yet challenging, and Time-framed.
