Parents/Legal Guardians are naturally interested in their children’s progress through the school. Every year teachers are called on to explain just how and why children are placed in the various classes. Children’s birthdays and enrolments fall more or less evenly through the year; the children in the school have a variable time in which to cover the basic six year course.
Junior classes will normally occupy from one and a half to two and a half years, but continuous progress and sustained effort will be the criteria employed when promotion is being considered. Children vary in intellectual experience, social, emotional and physical development. Parents can see that promotion is a fairly complicated business and to be effective must be managed on the basis of a child’s progress and educational needs.
