Background history: During 2016, we began to implement Sentral on a number of levels from organising Parent Teacher Meetings, recording welfare and first aid notes, reporting to parents, distributing newsletters and a range of other functions. In 2017 we plan to use more functions that will enable us to communicate frequently with parents about student leanring, where thay are at and what the next level of learning is. We see this as an opportunity to make the curriculum visible to parents and know where your child is at in English in Mathematics initially. Please be patient as we as a staff learn how this will work.

We are also working on a few “how to” manuals for parents. This will be available here soon.

We have also developed a Reporting overview for parents so you know when various things are coming or can be expected. We are always reviewing our procedures and will be tweaking some reporting aspect in 2017. Stay up to date via the newsletter but click   2017 Report timelines  for an overview (Published in Newsletter week 2 of 2017).

Parent Teacher Meetings for 2017 

COMPLETED! February 16th, 2017 – “Getting to know you” meetings

Dear Parents & Carers,

Now that the students have settled in and hopefully you have established some family routines, our staff want to catch up with you to discuss your child’s learning and find out how we can help them during the year. This is a chance for you to share with your child’s teacher and set some goals based on last year’s report (except the Preps!!!).

While we dedicate a longer day on Thursday 16th Feb as the ‘Interview Day’, we understand some parents will not be able to attend and each teacher has opened up other times that may suit. Please see individual classroom teachers’ times when you login to Sentral.

We have tried to create a simple process for you to follow and minimize disruptions in the office. Go to the Parent Portal at http://chilwellps.vic.edu.au/parent-information/sentral/ click on the logo and follow the prompts. New families will need to set up a parent portal. The email address you have given the school will be the email address Sentral will use to set up your Parent Portal and manage your bookings.

We will set up Skoolbag with reminders too but please be prompt with your bookings and not leave it until the last minute!

TIMELINE: Please respect this timeline

  • NOW – update your email details with the office staff – essential for your booking
  • Tuesday 7th Feb @ 4pm – Sentral opens for parent bookings via the SENTRAL logo on the school website – http://chilwellps.vic.edu.au/parent-information/sentral/
  • Monday 13th Feb Sentral bookings close – you can edit up until 11am on the 13th.
  • Interviews will begin from Tuesday 14th Feb (teacher dependent)

Thank you for your on-going support and partnerships in developing your child’s education.

 

 

June 2017…Mid year: Student-Teacher-Parent Meetings (3 Way interviews)

Dear Parents & Carers,

It’s approaching that time of the year where our staff want to catch up with you and your children want to show off and celebrate their achievements. Sentral will be used again to book times as we did with the initial meetings earlier this year. This time our students will be taking a major part in communicating their report and results and next stages of learning.

Later in Term 2, Sentral will be open for you to book in a time to discuss your child’s progress with the teacher. This is also a time to listen to some of the achievements presented by your child.

While we dedicated  Wednesday June 28th as the ‘Interview Day’, we understand some parents will not be able to attend and each teacher has opened up other times that may suit. Please see individual classroom teachers’ times when you login to Sentral.
