Learning Conferences - Week 2 Term 3 - 2nd and 3rd August 2017

posted Jun 21, 2017, 9:09 PM by Reception @TMCS   [ updated Jun 21, 2017, 9:12 PM ]

We invite all Year 3 - 6 parents to join your children at their Learning Conferences and 3 Way Interviews, in Week 2 of Term 3. Bookings for these conferences will be online as usual on a first come first serve basis. The interview booking system will go live next week, please keep a look out for an email advising of the access code early next week.


Maungatautari - Year 5 & 6 will be trialing a new format this year and each teacher will have two slots A & B running at the same times. Students will be leading their learning journeys for 20 minutes with the teacher moving between two families within that time.


 Pirongia - Year 3 & 4

Our Year 4 Students will be joining in ‘Three Way’ learning discussions with their teachers to share their learning and goals with you following their Mid-Year reports going home.


This year, all Year 3 parents are also invited to make an interview time, regardless of whether you have received an anniversary report or not. This interview will be a progress update to reflect and build on what was discussed in Term 1.

Maungatautari & Pirongia Syndicates - Early Finish Option Wednesday 2 August


To enable all of our Year 3 - 6 students to have a quality Learning Conference in a focused environment, our Pirongia and Maungatautari student lessons will conclude at 12:20pm on Wednesday.   Children can then be collected and return for their conference.


If you are unable to collect your child, classroom care will be provided for children either in Taupiri classrooms or with a Relief Teacher.


Please note the option to finish at 12:20pm is only available for our middle and senior syndicates, regular school hours are in place for Taupiri students.  After School Care will operate as normal, as will our School Bus service.


Taupiri - Years 0 - 2

For parents whose child has received, or are receiving, an anniversary report in Term 2 we also invite you to make a time for a Parent Teacher Interview on Wednesday 2nd and Thursday 3rd August, Term 3. A letter will be sent home with your child to remind you.  Please make your interview time directly with your class teacher rather than via the online booking system which will be used for our older student conferences.  


We look forward to meeting with you to discuss your child’s progress and achievements.  


The online booking system will go live next week with the following time blocks:
