Pick-a-Time Instructions for Upper Parents

Parent-teacher interviews will be held on Monday, Oct. 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. They’ll also be held on Thursday, Oct. 30 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

We’re piloting the student-led conference format for Year 1 and Year 2 students in the Intermediate Division only. Developing a student’s understanding of how he learns, taking greater responsibility for his learning and helping him to set constructive goals are driving this change. Depending upon the success of the new format, we’ll consider it for the Senior Division.

Year 1 and 2 parents and students will be able to book a five-minute conference slot with their son’s adviser. Because of teacher course assignments, we’re able to make time in the two days for these meetings for these advisers. Changes to the total conference time would be required to offer this to Senior Division parents and students.

As always, Senior Division parents are able to email or telephone their son’s adviser to consult on any matter at times other than the conference days.

You’ll be able to access the parent-teacher interview booking system link from the school’s website here.

The booking site will be available at these times:

Open: Thursday, Oct. 16 at 9 a.m.
Closed: Friday, Oct. 24 at 4 p.m.

Open: Tuesday, Oct. 28 at 9 a.m.
Closed: Wednesday, Oct. 29 at 12 p.m.

You’ll be able to book your interviews for Oct. 27 and 30 during these times.
