Each year Killara High School schedules three student progress review meetings when parents can speak with teachers about their child's learning progress before too much of the year has passed.
The first Student Progress Review meeting session for Years 7 and 11 was held at the end of Term 1 with the Years 8 and 12 session held in week 4.
The final Student Progress Review Meeting for Term 2 is for:
Years 9 & 10 is on Tuesday 18th June (Week 8).
We hope parents can take advantage of this opportunity to discuss with teachers their children's progress to date.
On 28th May, parents of students in Years 9 and 10 will receive an email invitation allowing them access to the computerized booking system. This enables parents to indicate their availability for a meeting and to indicate which of their child's teachers they would like to see. All Years 9 and 10 parents need to ensure that they indicate their preferences at this stage to maximize their opportunity to see all teachers with whom they wish an interview. This access will close at 3pm on Thursday 6th June.
Interviews between parents and the nominated teachers will then be scheduled between the hours of 3.30pm and 8.00pm taking into account parent and teacher availability.
The schedule of interviews will be open for parent access on 12th June so that parents may print out their schedule. Some limited adjustments of appointments may be possible depending on the availability of teachers. This access will close again on 17th June at 3pm. All parents will then need to login and print out their list of appointments.
Please note –
- The venue for all interviews will be the Kerrabee Centre hall. Signs around the walls of the hall will indicate course/ faculty locations and signs on tables will indicate locations of individual teachers.
- Interviews are of five minutes duration. Parents and teachers are asked to restrict their discussion to that time in fairness to all families seeking interviews. If teachers and/or parents feel the need to discuss matters further, another mutually convenient time should be arranged.
- Interviews must be prearranged. To drop in on the off chance of speaking to a teacher can prove very frustrating to those with appointments and such requests may not be able to be accommodated. Please give consideration to the needs of other parents and the staff during these evenings.
Please take advantage of these opportunities to meet with the school staff to discuss your child's progress. Year Advisers, a School Counsellor, Careers Adviser and the Learning and Support Teacher will also be present. A translation service can also be made available through the school. Please contact the school no later than June 3rd if you require translator services
