Welcome to Our Learning Portfolio!

Welcome to Our Learning Portfolio!

The Learning Portfolio is where you will tell your All Saints’ story.

The focus of the Learning Portfolio is on reflection, on looking across your subjects and semesters and the various tasks and assignments throughout your school life. By means of the portfolio you will manage and track your growth as a learner over the course of years – in school and beyond in cocurricular and other activities that demonstrate your learning in vital areas such as community service, innovation & enterprise, teamwork & leadership and creative & critical thinking. The portfolio will also offer evidence of your achievement and your progress on personal goals.
