New Reporting System at the College

We have been selected this year as a pilot school by the Catholic Education Office, Diocese of Parramatta (CEDP) to trial a new student reporting system. Through this process, we have been supported by CEDP in learning the new reporting system, however, as a pilot school, we are addressing technical issues as they arise, and this is taking time. The Semester 1 Reports will look different to previous reports in the new reporting system and it is likely that it will not be possible to report attendance. Be assured that the College Semester 1 Reports will still meet all mandatory reporting requirements.
