DS just brought home his report.  Apparently he is a valued member of the school AFL team.







He doesn't play AFL.  At all.

Still, probably no worse than the one he brought home saying that James could do this and that in Maths.  My son's name is NOT James.

Hmmm... Proof reading and editing seems to be overlooked as part of the writing process at that school!

I got a report and a certificate as a kid made out to Georgiana. Which is awesome, but my name is completely different, doesn't even start with a G. The certificate made me really mad, they wouldn't give me a new one. rant.gif

Reminds me of my year 12 report that said that I was an active participant of the school swimming comp and the athletics comp  roll2.gif roll2.gif  I took the swimming comp off to go shopping with mum for my 18th birthday party supplies and just didn't go to the Athletics one.

I must admit having just got DS's report, I am not convinced it was his.  Very happy mum!!

We had one of those last year which mentioned his active participation on grandparents day..... Which was really interesting as we were in London at that time.

Oh dear, reminds me of the time I went to dd's school teacher/parent interview and the teacher sat rubbing his chin saying:
"hmm xxxxx now which one is she?, who are her friends?" ohmy.gif

I once sat through a parent-teacher interview with my sons yr 11 maths teacher, and wondered who the hell he was talking about. He was reading notes regarding test results, and a school report.
Turns out it wasn't my son at all, he was reading some other kids report and relaying his findings to me, and didn't seem to connect that the lanky blond kid sitting next to me was not the subject of his notes.
That wasn't the only instance where I had an interview regarding a child I didn't know and I stopped going to them eventually. Big waste of time. And the school reports were so generic they weren't worth the paper they were copied and pasted on.

That is bad.

But, the way reports are done these days is mostly pick a comment here, tick a box there and it isn't surprising that sometimes these things happen.  I really would love to write a report in  my own words.

As for a teacher mixing up a child at an interview, that is pretty poor.


#15 The Awesome One

Posted 07 December 2012 - 05:44 PM

Wow I would be a little peeved if that happened to us. The worst I can think of is when as a child they had spelled my name wrong on my certificate, I pointed it out to my teacher and she sent me straight to the office so they could issue me with a new one.

Now the hospital I birthed my twins at however  mad.gif I had half of DDs notes written in DS2s book and vice versa, thank god I knew what was going on with each one as they sure as hell didn't (each one needed different tests after birth due to their positioning and due to cysts found near DS2s spleen while I was pregnant)

Apparently, the fact my son's name is mispelled 'Eric' 85% of the time is thanks to the autocorrect on the school's system. And yet, they manage to spell all the foreign and uneekly spelled names correctly... So far, Erik's high school isn't making this mistake - maybe their system doesn't have autocorrect?

My High School PE teacher said I excelled at Water Polo, I never even got in the pool that year. HOWEVER, the teacher did admit to me he did it as he didn't know that my mother knew that I was avoiding the swimming classes and didn't want me to get in trouble.

DD1's school report has a spelling mistake in the comments section for English.

Erm...you do realise that reports are due BEFORE holdays begin?

And as for '12 weeks of holidays'  rolleyes.gif

we don't have ours yet & being in Vic won't be getting any comments, but in mid year apparently 90% of the school was doing good skipping practice for sport & for one of my friends, her grade 3 daughter had a comment of "he is well regarded as school captain" - a role for grade 6's only.

LOL. That is pretty bad.

Too funny.  DS's last year kept referring to him as 'she' and how 'she' participated in xyz excursion - err, we were away... huh.gif

He is so good at AFL that he doesn't even have to play to be good at it! Now THAT is talent.

Term 1's Parent-Teacher this year was abysmal. The teacher was an idiot and told me nothing good then said "he makes noises in class". I stared at her for a couple of beats and saaid slowly "he has autism. It is a verbal tic. He can't help it". She replied "Oh, I know" and I answered "no you don't, or you wouldn't have mentioned it". She also said he was 'not good" in maths, yet the year before he was advanced in maths.

I cracked the sh*ts, walked out and went to the pricipal. She organised another one in the new term, and this time, the teacher came prepared, with all his results and work. I asked about maths, she said he was far ahead of the other years 2's and doing some year 3 work. I said "well why did you tell me he was 'not good' last time?" She said "well, hmm, I don't know!"  blink.gif I said "well I was starting to think you had the wrong kid!" She replied "Oh, I think I might have!"

Great way to instill confidence!

I must be doing something wrong lol.. no cut and paste here my reports are still handwritten and come as part of a testing package and show proof of the comments backed up by the child's own work.  Although cutting and pasting does sound much easier  lol
