THREE WAY CONVERSATIONS
Week 10, Term 1 (April 2-8) each year we hold 3 Way Conversations, involving parents, students and teachers. A 3 way conversation is a genuine partnership between home and school. There are no secrets, students feel empowered and respected and acknowledged contributors to their own learning. We want students to share the responsibility for their own learning. Consequently they need to be part of the decision making, goal setting and feedback process. The format of this conversation is to
- Allow the student to discuss their learning goals and display the work they have achieved so far this year.
- To provide parents with the opportunity to discuss how their child is going.
- To provide teachers with the opportunity to give an overview of your child’s progress and learning needs.
We have allowed 10 minutes for the conversation. (We will be holding these conversations during Week 10; April 2-8). If you have specific concerns you would like to discuss for a longer period of time please arrange a meeting time at a later date with your child’s teacher. Specialist teachers will be available if anyone wishes to make an appointment to see them. 3 Way Conversation bookings are made through SOBS our on-line booking site. SOBS will be open for bookings from Wednesday 21st March. At this stage Year 1 will not be open until Term 2, Week 1. See our latest newsletter for instructions. If you are having any trouble at all with our online booking program please don’t hesitate to contact your child’s teacher.
