Parent / Student / Teacher Conferences Term 3
5.30 PM Start
Next week there will be an opportunity for parents and guardians along with students currently enrolled in Years 7 to 11 to participate in Parent/Student/Teacher conferences via Zoom on Wednesday September 16th and Thursday September 17th.
Requests for individual conference bookings will be made via the Xuno parent portal [as per normal] and will be open from 9am on Friday September 11th. Please note that bookings will close on Tuesday September 15th at 3pm if not fully booked prior to that time.
Each conference will be no more than ten  minutes in duration and conferences will commence from 4pm through to 5.30pm each night before resuming from 6.00pm to 7.00pm. As Year 12 students and those Year 11 students doing a Unit 3/ 4 study have already had the opportunity for Zoom conferences earlier this term, these particular end of term conferences are intended for students across Years 7 -11 who have not yet had a formal conference with any subject teachers due to the extended periods of remote and flexible learning in 2020.
Each subject teacher will have a maximum of 13 bookings available on either night. As there are limited conference spaces available, parents and guardians are respectfully asked to ensure that they only book one conference time with any teacher who teaches one or more of their children for multiple subjects.
As in previous years, some teachers may be unavailable for some or all of this time and should that be the case, parents and guardians are invited to make contact with these teachers to organise an alternative time for a conference related to student progress or performance.
Parent and Guardian preparation prior to Conferences
It will be important that parents or guardians are ready for these conferences when contact is made by the subject teacher for that particular conference to commence.
Please note that these conferences will be conducted using Zoom via the student’s laptop.
Information and instructions with screen shots to assist everyone to access these conferences will be emailed to all parents and guardians of students in Years 7 to 11 inclusive on Thursday September 10th.
