Book appointments for October three-way conferences

Feedback is one of the most important tools to help students grow, and a stronger connection between parents/guardians, teachers and students is integral to their continued academic development. The Upper School’s three-way conferences provide an opportunity for both to take place. It’s important that you and your child meet with as many Term A faculty members as possible.

Term A virtual interviews will be held on Friday, October 15, in five-minute intervals, for Year 8 to 12. Students are expected to attend and participate in these interviews with their parents to encourage ownership over their learning and develop self-advocacy skills.

It’s important that you access the Google Meet link at the time of your scheduled appointment and not before. Please use your email address and not your child’s UCC email. If you do not have a Google account, you will need to create one in order to log in to the meeting.  You will be placed in a “waiting room” until the meeting begins. At the start of the meeting, introduce yourself so that the teacher can confirm that the conversation is about your student. Please keep each conversation to the scheduled five minutes so that our faculty members can meet with all families.

Term B interviews with subject teachers and advisers will take place on November 17.

For instructions about booking a meeting time through Pick-a-Time (bookings begin on October 1 for the Term A meetings), please see below.

Warm regards,
Jeff Aitken
Head of the Upper School
