Kia ora tatou,
This coming Thursday, 23 August we will be holding our whole school Whanau Conferencing between 2pm and 7pm in the Hall. This is an opportunity for you to meet with the teachers who work with your children.
Year 11 - 13 students have approximately 36 school days until they head away on study leave in November. This does not include the first five days of Term 4 when they will be sitting their practice examinations.
These interviews will be a good time to catch up with teachers in order to check that your children are on track as well as to find out how best you can support them over these 36 days. One thing that you can do is make sure that they are consistently revising at home - very few senior students will have "no homework". There is always revision to be done.
Year 10 students all have NCEA assessments under way, and should also be very focused on their work and revision at this time.
Year 7 and 8 Conferencing is only for the specialist subjects as they have already recently had conferencing with teachers for the core subjects.
Please book your interviews via the normal website (www.schoolinterviews.co.nz) using this code p8z5x.
School will close at 12:50pm. Students are welcome to stay in the library until 3:15pm to catch a bus. If your child is intending to stay at school please inform the Main School Office on 208 9060 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please be in touch if you have any concerns or questions.
I look forward to seeing you next week.
Assistant Principal - Teaching and Learning
