During 2020 at Baden Powell College Grade 5 and Grade 6 at the Tarniet campus will now become separate year levels. The change from composite grades now allows students the flexibility to have more choice in their learning.

 

What happens in home-group and Personal Growth classes?

What is meant by ‘Learning Tasks’?
This is how a variety of tasks and assessments are referred to on Compass. Learning Tasks are set by teachers are uploaded to Compass. There will be a description of the task set. When the task has been submitted and marks, feedback will be given. This can be scores, written comments or statements such as “At expected level”. Some of these Learning Tasks will make up the semester reports.
