Teachers visit their students throughout the year. During visits, they aim to develop positive working relationships and familiarise themselves with their student’s learning environment and facilities. They work with students, assess progress in English and Mathematics along with a particular emphasis on practical activities in the areas of the Arts, Science, Technology and Physical Education. The teachers also use this opportunity to assist students and home tutors in the areas of school focus and individual need. Teachers consult with home tutors, collaborating on programme modifications, supporting the team and giving advice.
The principal will also visit families, with and without the student’s teachers, as required.
After a teacher home visit, the teacher will write a report and forward it to the principal and the family involved.

In addition to Teacher Home Visits other ‘Face to Face’ opportunities for teachers and students include Home Tutor’s Seminar, mini Camps, major Camps, In-School Weeks and Year 4 – 6 School of the Air Muster in Perth.
