Reports & Parent Teacher Interviews

Progress reports are issued to parents in both Term 2 and 4.

Parent/Teacher interviews are conducted in Terms 1 and 3. Parents are invited to discuss their child’s progress by making an appointment with their teacher.


Solar Generation & Energy Consumption Studies

Thorpdale Primary School is able to monitor its energy consumption and generation through its solar panels in real time through data provided online from Solar SETS. This data is available on the Thorpdale Primary School Page of the SETS website.

The SETS website provides an essential learning framework with a range of resources and related units of work, integrated studies outlines, as well as suggested science, numeracy, literacy and sustainability based learning activities. This provides a great starting point for our teachers to initiate discusssion with students on the importance of managing our precious energy resources.
