Every year our families and teachers have 20 minute Family Conferences, where students introduce their caregivers to their work, goals are set and open discussions had about how families and students can work together with the school to achieve those goals.
Our style of family conference is more effective than rushed parent/ teacher interviews that some parents tell us they have experienced elsewhere. We promote ongoing involvement, realising this is not always easy for families to achieve with rapidly developing teenagers.
A typical parent comment from this year’s conferences: “Always a pleasure to speak with the teacher about our children. Family conferences are reassuring that this school cares about our kids”
