Heads Up

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

Student-led conferences

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.

An overview:
Primary student-led conferences will take place on Thursday, April 13 from 8 a.m. until 5 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.
