Learning Conversations - Tuesday 2 July (early finish at 1pm) and Thursday 4 July

As per our note in the last newsletter, we are going to take a slightly different approach to our mid-year meetings with parents.  We are going to trial moving to Learning Conversations this year, which provides students with a different way to share their learning with you.  While the majority of parent feedback over the past 2 years has been very positive about Student Led Conferences, we know some parents would prefer a 1-1 hui (meeting) with the teacher.  Next year we intend to move back to a Student Led Conference.  

The Learning Conversation will be in the form of a 15 minute time slot booked just for you and your child with the teacher.  Your child will still lead this conversation and it is important they are at the hui.  If you want some 1-1 time without your child present, you can let the teacher know prior and this can probably be arranged within the timeframe or at another time, depending on what you want to discuss.  Dates for these meetings have been set for Tuesday 2 July and Thursday 4 July.  

In order to fit all the appointments in, the first appointment will be 2pm on the Tuesday.  Therefore, we are asking those parents who can, to pick their child up early at 1pm on Tuesday 2 July.  If you can’t pick your child up early, we will have a small number of staff available on site to provide cover for them here at school.  Please complete this google form to ensure we know what the arrangements are for your child.  You only need to complete the google form if your child will be staying at school.
