Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Primary student-led conference sign-up

Student-led conferences are used as methods of self-assessment and reflection in our Primary Years Programme. Using his portfolio, a student shares his finished work, processes, skills and understanding in the context of his daily learning environment. In addition, families have an opportunity to celebrate and appreciate their sons’ hard work and accomplishments.

With the help of their teachers, students identify areas of success and where improvement is needed, and construct goals for the remainder of the term. The benefits of the three-way conference include: identifying strengths; ensuring areas for improvement and specific goals are clear to the student, his teachers and his parents; promoting the student’s understanding of how he learns; building the student’s accountability for his learning; and contributing to the student’s self-confidence.

An overview:

Primary student-led conferences will take place on Thursday, April 16 from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Your son won’t attend school on the conference day, but will accompany you to school for the conference time you book. Although your conference time will only be 15 minutes, you should be prepared for these conferences to take between 45 minutes and an hour. Your son is expected to be in number one dress.

You’ll be able to schedule your April student-led conference by signing up online from 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, April 7 until 4 p.m. on Monday, April 14. The system won’t be accessible outside of these dates.
