    Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences

    Term 1 Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences

    On Wednesday March 18th, Term 1 parent/student/teacher conference bookings will be accessible to parents and guardians via the Xuno parent portal.

    Given that we now use the Canvas Learning Management System to provide ongoing student feedback and published results there will be no interim reports issued this term as has been the case in previous years.

    As a result, these end of term conferences remain a very important opportunity to meet with teachers to discuss your daughter or son’s current progress as provided to you via Canvas.

    Bookings will be accessible via the parent portal from 4pm on March 18th until 9am on March 26th when bookings will be closed to allow teachers to prepare for the scheduled conferences. If any teachers are unavailable for these conferences, you will be unable to book an interview with them in this way. Should that occur, you are invited to email that teacher directly and organise a subsequent meeting at a mutually convenient time.

    The conferences themselves will commence at 4pm on Thursday March 26th and continue through till 8.20pm that evening with a dinner break for staff between 6pm and 7pm. They will resume the next day, Friday March 27th at 9am and conclude at 12noon.

    For your clarification, Friday March 27th will be a student free day and the final day for Term 1 classes will be Thursday March 26th.

    The venue for the upcoming conferences will be indicated in a subsequent newsletter but to ensure your availability, please record the dates and times in your diaries at this point.
