Learning and Programs
While all learning area (subjects) are catered for, music in particular has a strong focus at Lonsdale Heights Primary.
Our current program is comprised of: Whole school Singing * Guitar Club * Class music lessons * Keyboard * Percussion.
All classes are equipped with interactive whiteboards. These facilities provide the opportunity for classes to participate in a
wide range of interactive experiences on any given topic.
Our large library and excellent IT facilities enable our students to participate in resourced based and information technology learning in a comfortable environment.
Our shaded playgrounds and Gym provide safe venues for physical education opportunities.
Assessment and Reporting
In accordance with DECD’s policy, all staff present to Parents/Caregivers twice a year a written report covering all areas of study from the South Australian Curriculum and Accountability Framework (SACSA) – a Mid Year and end of year report. Students are graded from A to E in all learning areas, C meaning they are operating at their year level.
Parents/caregivers and students in years 3, 5 and 7 receive an additional report on aspects of literacy & numeracy demonstrated in the basic skills test that occurs in Term 2.
Reporting about student learning happens both informally and formally.
