Preparing for My Personal Best

8/02/2016
Maroochydore SHS defines as its vision, Excellence in education for all.  This ambition highlights the need to individualise the learning process, setting high expectations and offering high support so that every young person who attends Maroochydore SHS has the opportunity to graduate as the very best version of themselves.  Our expectation is that every young person will graduate with the QCE and then either an OP or Vocational certificate of worth.
 
At the core of student academic success is the focus on ensuring the right conditions for learning.  These conditions include regular attendance, active engagement and completing all assessment tasks.  It is these areas that we must expect every student to focus on when preparing for their personal best.  We refer to these elements as MyPB.  While these elements have always been tracked, this year will see modifications to the way we track, discuss and celebrate our students’ ability to meet these expectations.
 
Every student in our school has been focusing over the last week on finalising the steps they will undertake to reach their Personal Best this year.  A future focused approach to setting goals, developing strategies for successfully improving their learning and identifying targets for their classes. 
 
As part of the process of supporting students with attaining their goals we are asking all students, parents / carers to meet with designated Teachers to review the preparation that has been outlined and forge a learning partnership link between home and school.
 
Interviews will occur on Monday 15 February (3pm to 5pm) and Tuesday 16 February (12pm to 7pm) in the Jubilee Hall. Bookings can be made from Tuesday 9 February through the PTO link on the front page of this website.
 
As outlined in other correspondance, students will only attend school on Tuesday 16 Feb for the scheduled interview with their Teacher.  This enables the teachers to be free at the later times to meet with our 1261 students and their families.
 
A supportive partnership between home and school is an important contributor to achieving a personal best for our students.
