Parent/Teacher/Student Learning Conferences
We have been delighted to see our students approaching their learning with such enthusiasm and focus throughout Term 1. It is our intention to provide feedback to both parents and students on a regular basis, as we know that this impacts the learning process in a positive way and allows us all to work together in supporting our students. Parents are now receiving regular personalised communications regarding student progress and personal learning via the ‘In Time Reporting’ process. Further to this, a summative end of Semester Report will be completed in July.
We anticipate that for the majority of parents, the ‘In Time Reporting’ will have provided the information needed to establish a good understanding of how your child is progressing. If, however, you wish to discuss the progress of your son/daughter further with staff, Parent/Teacher/Student Learning Conferences will be conducted from 4:00pm to 6:00pm and 6.30pm to 8.30pm on:
Thursday 26th April for both the Junior School, Prep–Year 4 and Middle School, Years 5 – 9
Parent/Teacher/Student Learning Conferences are 10 minutes in duration. If any parent requires a longer conference time, please discuss this with the relevant teacher prior to your selected time-slot.
Teachers Mr Nick Ward and Mrs Nicola Morrish will not be available for a learning conference on this date as they will be on leave. Parents of students in these teachers classes are welcome to contact them directly via email or via reception to arrange an alternate conference time.
Please note: We are asking all students in Years 3 to Year 9 to accompany their parents as part of our Learning Conference process. Research suggests that student learning can be impacted positively through the teacher providing direct feedback to individual students. It also provides opportunity for reflection, questions and discussion pertinent to goal setting. We feel that parents will also benefit from these opportunities for discussion and feedback.
