Primary Parent Teacher Conferences (Mar 2021)


Primary Parent Teacher Conferences
March 26th, 2021

Dear Primary parents/guardians and students,

You are warmly invited to attend our second Parent Teacher Conferencewhich will be held at our school on Friday the 26th of March. In a Parent Teacher Conference (PTC) you will have the opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss your child’s progress. This will be a teaching free day, therefore only students who are attending the conferences with their parents or guardians should come to school..  ** Please also note there is no childcare on that day.


*NEW Primary PTC format 新的小学部家长会形式:

As we continue on our journey towards creating knowledgeable and reflective learners your child will be demonstrating student agency and leading the conversations about their learning on Friday! Students are, therefore, encouraged to attend these conferences with you so they can articulate their accomplishments and goals. Students will be asked ahead of time to reflect on what they have learned, and also think about what they find challenging. This will be framed as “Two Stars and a Wish” to provide some scaffolding for students. If students are unable to attend, the teacher will still have these documents available for reference.


Please find attached the “Two Stars and a Wish” framework that teachers will be using.

Please also be aware that you will be receiving an End of UOI summary report on March 24th via SeeSaw (just prior to the conferences). This Unit of Inquiry report can also inform the conversations you have on Friday.


*NEW Booking appointments 新的家长会预约途径:

This PTC we are aligning with our Secondary school moving forward and using School’s Buddy for appointment bookings.  (The same program you use for CCA’s). There will be detailed instructions sent regarding how to do this.

这次家长会我们将与我们的中学保持一致,并使用Schools Buddy进行预约。(与报名CCA一样的网站)。关于如何使用Schools Buddy预约家长会,会有详细的指示发送。

*NEW Y3-5 MAP information and results 新的3-5年级MAP考试信息和结果:

Year 3-5 parents and students will be able topick up their first round of MAP results and discuss what this data means for that child.  MAP assessment data will give you a thorough picture of your child’s learning, what they’re ready to learn, and the specific skill gaps they need to master.


There will be a general meeting for all parents of  Year 3-9 students from 2:00pm to 3:00pmin the theatre where leadstaff will talk about MAP as an assessment tool, and also how the data can further inform teachers and students about learning goals.
