In 2018 Lavalla Catholic College will be moving from a 4 period day to a 5 period day in a 10-day cyclic timetable. This change has come about after a period of research, consultation and discernment. While there are a number of reasons for this change, essentially is it is seen as another tool to improve student learning.
The change to the structure of the day will not impact on start or finish times:
8:45am start, 3:15pm finish
|Description of Bell||Bell Time|
|Period 1||9:10am - 10:08am|
|Homeroom / LA||8:50am - 9:08am|
|Period 5||2:17pm - 3:15pm|
|Lunch||1:31pm - 2:12pm|
|Period 4||12:33pm - 1:31pm|
|Period 3||11:33am - 12:31pm|
|Recess||11:08am - 11:28am|
|Period 2||10:10am - 11:08am|
At the beginning of 2018, students will receive timetables which reflect this new arrangement. Throughout the year we will monitor student progress to assess the effect of the 5 period day. During Learning Block meetings parents will be invited to offer feedback about the impact of this change.
