​November arrives “when you feel the bone structure of the landscape- the feeling of winter…” and the sense of change is in the air. Royal Oak students and staff are engaging in inspirational learning that only curiosity, complexity and thoughtful process can advance this meaningful learning and develop the competencies in critical thinking, communication, problem solving and problem finding.

With the focus on improving education, there is also a focus in assessment and reporting. We are also confident that we are taking some very positive steps forward in finding ways to communicate more clearly and more frequently with parents around student achievement. Please ensure that you are taking some time to regularly check Iris and see your child’s work, goals and self-assessments.

Data will be presented at the November School Council regarding the achievement on Report Cards and the perception data of our Student, Parent and Staff surveys which were taken in June 2018.

  • June 2018
  • ROS student, parent and teacher surveys (June 2018)
  • Grade 3 SLA results (October 2018
