Student Led Conferences – Term 3
Event Details
Thursday 25 July 2024 12 : 00 AM - 12 : 00 AM
During Term 3 parents/carers, teachers and students will have two opportunities to meet online and reflect on the learning that has taken place this year to date.

The dates and details for Student Led Conferences will be:

  • Thursday 25 July (Week 1) from 4.00 pm to 7.30 pm
  • Thursday 1 August (Week 2) from 4.00 pm to 7.30 pm

These conferences will be held online via Microsoft Teams. Teachers will call the students on their Microsoft Teams account at the scheduled booking time to make contact – students must ensure they are logged in to Microsoft Teams using their St Edward’s College email. It is preferable that students use their school laptop for this. Microsoft Teams meetings will not be recorded by teaching staff and we request that parents and students not record meetings either.

All conferences are intended to support your child in developing a greater sense of responsibility for their learning. It will be compulsory for students to attend all scheduled meetings with their parents/carers. Students will be expected to take an active role in leading their parents/carers and teachers through a reflection on their learning in that subject. There will be an expectation that students complete a reflection on their progress for each subject prior to the meeting. The student, parents/carers and teachers will then reflect on and evaluate the learning goals set and discuss strategies to address areas of challenge and achieve learning growth throughout Semester Two.

The Student Led Conference bookings are managed with an internet-based booking system called Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO).
