Information for parents and carers

What is the national data collection?

The Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (the national data collection) is an annual collection that counts the number of school students receiving an adjustment due to disability and the level of reasonable adjustment they are receiving.

The national data collection counts students who have been identified by a school team as receiving an adjustment to address a disability as defined under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (the DDA). The DDA can be accessed from the ComLaw website at www.comlaw.gov.au.

What is the benefit for my child?

The aim of the national data collection is to collect quality information about school students receiving an adjustment due to disability in Australia.

We are requesting for volunteers to make traditional meals in bulk and packed in take away containers for students and guests to purchase at lunch time.

We request any foods and sweets must not contain nuts.

We are unable to provide cooking facilities or heating so all donated food should be ready for purchase.

During the school holidays, Liam McRae spent four days immersed in the world of Historically Informed Performance (HIP). 47 students from 22 schools throughout Sydney and beyond came together in the beautiful Santa Sabina College to play Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony. Musicians of the Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra tutored the students in rehearsals, sectionals, and workshops, applying musical stylistic practices from Mozart’s time. Students were able to experience period instruments and learn about how European musical styles have changed through time. Finally, the Haffner Symphony was brought to life in an exceptional performance for friends and family which showcased the abilities of our Young Mannheim Symphonists.

Last Thursday, on the 1st of June, a group of ten year nine boys including myself and Ms M. Kaur travelled to the Concourse, Civic Pavilion in Chatswood, to take part in Altitude day. Altitude day is a one-day event created by yLead to empower year 9 students in this important stage of our school journey. Altitude day incorporates multiple activities that force us out of our comfort zone, memorable advice about unlocking potential and achieving our goals and inspirational speeches by remarkable guest speakers to teach us about developing into young, passionate leaders.

The day was run by yLead’s CEO, Matt Kershaw. Once we arrived at the Civic Pavilion, we were handed booklets containing quotes and activities for the day, before we immediately underwent a challenge. The challenge was called; “Offline social networking challenge”, in which you had to find a person from a different school, introduce yourself and tell them about your interests, and vice versa, before departing that person and meeting someone new.
