The Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools School Improvement Survey (MACSSIS) will take place this year in the period Monday 28 August to Friday 15 September, the last two weeks of Term 3. MACSSIS is the primary method used by the Melbourne Archdiocese to gather feedback about schools from everyone involved in a school community – students, school staff, parents and guardians.

As the title of the survey indicates, it is an important component of the ongoing efforts to sustain and monitor improvements within schools, such as:

  • School climate
  • Student safety
  • Family engagement
  • Communication
  • Catholic identity.

When the survey opens on Monday 28 August, members of the OLMC community will receive an invitation to participate in the online survey and instructions as to how to do so. Parent and guardian participation in the survey is voluntary but when you receive an invitation you are encouraged to complete it, as MACSSIS is a particularly reliable way for us to receive feedback from parents. Further updates about MACSSIS will be provided in following Term 3 OLMC Newsletters.

If you would like more information, or if you would like to volunteer for participation in MACSSIS, please contact me at the College: sconlan@olmc.vic.edu.au or 9455 2511.
