A very short Weekly. Ironically it was not because it was a quiet week, rather, because it was busy one. Sadly, the week was just too busy to take in some of the many things that took place this week at McRoberts.
On Tuesday, October 15th - Thursday, October 17th McRoberts hosted a 3-day visit of 33 students and 2 teaching staff from Josho Gakuen High School, Osaka. The purpose of the visit was a cultural and language exchange between our students and those from Japan.
Amazing Candidates for Grade Eight Rep
We were very fortunate to have a number of truly amazing candidates who campaigned hard for Grade 8 Reps. All of the candidates would have represented McRoberts proudly. A special congratulations to all of the students who did bravely put their names forward.
Students in Ms. Yau's class tried their hand at the fine art of souflé. Armed with skills and a recipe (and anything they wanted as flavouring), students used their creativity and cooking skills to come up with some sensational treats. (Thanks Ms. Yau)
At Risk Interims
Students will receive three interims (along with three formal report cards) in a school year.
At McRoberts, two of the Interims are considered "regular" interims. Each student will receive feedback from each of their teachers.
The first interim (sent recently in the mail), are intended for parents of students who are struggling in one or more of their classes. Parents are reminded that you can always contact the school if you have any concerns. Parent Teacher Conferences take place on October 29th and 30th. Information will be provided shortly to allow parents to book appointments.
