Dear Parents and Caregivers,
On Tuesday 5th July, Wednesday 6th July and Thursday 7th July, 2022 from 2.15pm-6.00pm we will be holding Year 7 and 8 3-Way Conferences.
School will close at 2.00pm on these three days. School buses will still be at 3pm and those students needing to catch the school bus or who have to be picked up at 3pm will be supervised until this time. Please make an appointment immediately so that you book a time that suits you and your whānau.
You will have the opportunity to discuss with your child and their classroom teacher how they have progressed so far this year, review any testing results to date and receive their Mid-Year School Report. For Year 8 students this will be an opportunity to discuss their transition to High School. It is important for your child to be present. During this 3-way Conference your child, with assistance from their teacher, will be asked to explain.
- Which level he or she is currently on – “What level am I working at?”
- What it means to be on this level and where they are likely to be by the end of the year- “What I can do at this level”
- What they need to work on to progress to the next level – “What do I need to do to get to the next level?”
They will be asking you for your help and assistance to get them to their next level.
