Thank you to parents and carers who provided relevant information that will be considered when allocating class lists for next year. Please be aware that a great deal of care and time is taken with decisions about class placements. Information provided by parents will be considered, however it is important to acknowledge that not all requests may be able to be met. A dedicated team of staff work very hard and are committed to ensuring class groups are designed around student needs. Class lists will be posted on the windows outside the Administration block on Friday, 19 January at 3.00pm. We are also aiming to email parents with the class allocation of your child at the same time. If you have any questions relating to this process, please discuss with your child's class teacher or contact the office.

Moggill State School (MSS) is proud to be part of the Curiosity and Powerful Learning project. This is an innovative school improvement methodology that identifies 10 Theories of Action (ToAs) that when implemented successfully, create dynamic improvements in school culture and academic results.
On Wednesday the LINK to the parent survey on learner protocols has gone live.
As a school we are justifiably impressed with the work we have already done on the following ToAs: Adopting Consistent Teaching Protocols; Committing to Assessment for Learning; Harnessing Learning Intentions, Narrative and Pace; Connecting Feedback to Data; and Establishing High Expectations and Authentic Relationships. The work however, like learning, is never complete.
The next critical piece of our school improvement strategy is developing Consistent Learner Protocols. These are the core set of values or attributes that underpin everything we teach and the way that we teach it. These Learner Protocols delve into the heart of our practice: the skills or 'gifts' we want our Moggill children to have at the core of their learning. But we need your help to do it.
Please take the time to respond to this survey about Learner Protocols and give us your feedback. It is the collective feedback you give the school that will enable us to shape the children of MSS into the types of learners that you believe is critical to their future.
