It’s that time of the year when we celebrate the achievements of our students and the want to share this with you. It is also a great opportunity to discuss next semester’s learning goals and strategies with the class teacher. 3-Way Interviews or Student Lead Conferences will be held in the students’ classroom on Wednesday 24th June. This is a Pupil Free day but your student must attend the meeting with you. The booking site (PTO) will open on Tuesday June 2nd at 5pm. You can retrieve your passwords via the PTO link on School website. Lesley will be available to assist you on Thursday 4th June between 12pm–1pm if you have any troubles. A computer is available in the Library if you need access to the internet. Please click on the link to book a time. If you are unavailable on this day, please let your child’s teacher know so an alternate time may be arranged. We thank you in advance for your support in continuing to improve and support the education of your children.
Reminder: A NEW PASSWORD WILL BE GENERATED EACH TIME INTERVIEWS ARE CONDUCTED. PLEASE DISPOSE OF ANY PREVIOUS PTO PASSWORDS or LOGINS.
