Year 11 and 12 Parent Teacher interviews
It has been decided it is in the best interests of all to change the format for the upcoming Years 11/12 Parent Teacher Interviews. It is important parents have the opportunity to receive feedback on their son’s learning if they so wish.This is going to be a difficult process to manage for all students. Please request a 5 minute phone interview if you have serious questions about your son’s learning at this time. If you would like to request a call from your son’s teacher in any subject please complete this form by midday Tuesday next, 24 March 2020.
We will continue to document our changes and inform you each at least each week of the decisions that have now been taken.
