Student Led Conferences
Thursday March 08
(No school for children on this day)
In order for your son/daughter to gain the best from their conferences scheduled for Thursday March 08, it is important that you understand the format we use at OIS for Student Led Conferences.
Student led Conferencing:
Student Led Conferences involve the student and their parents. Students showcase their learning and understanding with their parents.
Students are responsible for reflecting upon work samples they have chosen to share, that have been selected with guidance and support from the teachers.
All of the participants must understand the format and their roles prior to the conference. The format may differ depending on the age of the child.
The role of the Student is to be on time, stick to talking about the prepared work and to speak clearly.
The Parent’s role is to be on time for the conference, be positive, concerned and interested, to ask questions and to listen.
The role of the Teacher is to facilitate the conference.
Your home room teacher will post on your class blog their organisation for the day.
As always the staff are available to talk through any queries you may have regarding the progress and development of your children and I would ask, that should you wish to talk about any issues you may have, that you contact the office to make an appointment with the class teacher, rather than raise these in front of the children at their conference.
Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.
Head of Primary
March Media Mentor Month
In an age when devices and digital communication are the norm, not the exception; when children are learning technology in the same manner we acquired language skills, we need to walk beside them, participate and partner in their developing understanding and use of digital technologies.
Which one are you?
In order to continue supporting our sense of community and family, we would like to invite you to participate in March Media Mentor Month. Each day, for 31 days, you and your child/children will connect by learning about and learning through technology.
It is again hard to believe that we are now at the end of another month and soon it will be March.
We have 4 notices:
The Cafè Conversation to be held on February 27 has been cancelled. The next Cafè Conversation is scheduled for April 03 when the topic will be "Keeping your child safe with Technology."
