At Gleneagles Secondary College we believe that clear and timely reporting of your child’s achievements and progress at school is important. With this belief in mind we have made the decision to move to ongoing online reporting via Compass. The goal is to effectively gather, analyse and reflect on evidence to make informed and consistent decisions to improve your child’s learning experience.
You will receive two types of reports; Learning Snapshots and feedback on Common Assessment Tasks (CATs) and School Assessed Coursework (SACs).
Learning Snapshots look at the core character traits and learning skills of your child. They are intended be a quick insight into a student at a particular time. Teachers will complete learning snapshots at least two times per semester.
The three core character traits are:
Years 7-10: Teachers will be reporting on the Common Assessment Tasks that take place throughout the semester. CATs are marked against the Victorian Curriculum and also against a school wide scale. Each CAT has comments and there is a minimum of 1 per term per subject.
VCE: Teachers will be reporting on School Assessed Coursework as outlined by the relevant VCAA study design. They are marked against a common school wide scale. The frequency is dependent on the study design of the individual subject.

In support of the report format we will hold interviews with students and their parents at specific times throughout the year to discuss the students’ progress at school.
Parent teacher interviews give an opportunity for a detailed discussion of the student’s progress in each subject. We encourage parents and students to meet with as many teachers as possible.
Parents will be notified of dates for Parent/Teacher Interviews via Compass. On-line bookings are also made through Compass.
Book Club has given me a great chance to express my thoughts and opinions of the books I read. It has given me a great opportunity to read more, learn about new books and provided me with a wider range of books to read. In Book Club we go on excursions, such as going to the city to meet authors, which also gives us a chance to buy new books. A current event in Book Club is the ‘Reader’s Cup’ which is where we compete against other teams at a quiz night, answering questions about certain books we have read. Then we present our findings of the books in any creative way we like. An upcoming event will be a visit to the cinemas to watch a film related to a book the majority of us have read. This club has really helped me with my reading and choices of books to read. I am having a great time in Book Club and enjoy attending our weekly meetings.
