The first opportunity will be to have an online Microsoft Teams meetings on Thursday 30 June from 3:30 pm to 7:30 pm. The second opportunity will be the next day on Friday 1 July where interviews will be conducted in person on site at the College. These will be from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm.
Please note that the conferences on Thursday 30 June that will be held online as a Microsoft Teams meeting, 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 son in developing a greater sense of responsibility for his learning. It will be compulsory for students to attend all scheduled meetings with their parents. Students will be expected to take an active role in leading their parents 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 and teachers will then discuss some learning goals as they approach the Semester 2 assessments and strategies to address areas of challenge and achieve learning growth. It will also be a good opportunity to discuss the Semester 1 Report that will be published to the Parent/Student portals prior to the conferences.
The Learning Conference bookings will be managed with an internet-based booking system called Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO). Using this system, you will be able to book the conference times that suit you best. All conferences will be seven minutes in duration.
When you book for an online conference, the teachers will contact students on their device at the scheduled time via a Microsoft Teams meeting. This will mean that parents and students will need to be available at booked times with Microsoft Teams open.
When you book for a meeting at school you will need to go to the room indicated when you arrive at the College. There will be Year 12 prefects directing parents and students. This process and the process for student reflection will be further explained to students at upcoming year meetings.
Access to the system will be available from Tuesday 14 June at 7.00 pm and will be closed off for bookings the day before interviews.
