A Learning Conference is an annual meeting to help develop a strong learning partnership between the student, their parents/caregivers and their Ako Teacher, and as such it is very important for all parties to attend if at all possible.
Each Conference will be 20 minutes which your daughter will facilitate, with the support of their Ako Teacher. There is one booking per student. In the junior school (Yr9 & 10) the discussion will focus on the progress students have made to date and re-establishing goals set earlier in the year. Senior students (Yr11-13) will discuss their learning progress, personal assessment calendar, tracking and talking about future pathways.
There is a link below to a letter you can take to your employer informing them of the importance of the Learning Conference, should you need to take time off from your work.
Please come to the Main Reception area in Matairangi five minutes before your meeting time to find out where your meeting will take place. Our Careers staff will be on hand with careers information in the Cafe area and your student's Dean will also be available there if you want to meet with them.
You can book your appointment online (link to instructions below). Bookings open Monday 22 March at 9.00am. Please book your appointment as soon as possible. If we see you haven’t booked an appointment the Ako Teacher will contact you before Learning Conferences. Access to bookings will close on Wednesday 31 March at 9.00am
