In the coming weeks, you are invited to meet formally with your child’s class teachers at the Year Level Information Night and the ‘Meet the Teacher’ interviews. These occasions give parents and teachers opportunities to share information that will be important for the students’ learning this year.
Year Level Information Evening for Prep to Year 6
At these information sessions, teachers will highlight some key features of the Year Level’s programs for 2019 and discuss class expectations and special extra curricula activities such as camps and sporting events relevant to each year level. The information sessions will be held on the evenings of Monday 11 and Wednesday 13 February at the following times:
Monday 11 February
Year 1 6.30pm – 7.15pm Library
Year 2 6.30pm – 7.15pm Year 2 Classrooms
Year 5/6 6.30pm – 7.15pm Performing Arts Room
Wednesday 13 February
Prep 6.30pm – 7.15pm Library
Year 3 6.30pm – 7.15pm Year 3 Classrooms
Year 4 6.30pm – 7.15pm Performing Arts Room
Please indicate your intention to attend the Information Evening sessions via the Insights section of Compass.
Meet the Teacher Interviews
These interviews will be conducted on the afternoon and evening of Tuesday 19 February from 3.40pm to 8.10pm. This meeting time provides a wonderful opportunity for you to tell the class teacher anything about your child that may be relevant to their learning this year, and for you and the teacher to discuss your child’s educational needs early on in the school year. We will be using the Compass Online Booking Service for the scheduling of appointments.
Prior to the discussion, we would like you spend a little time to complete the attached form, “Observations by Parents – February, 2019”, for each child in the family who is at GIPS. Please return the form to the class teachers by Wednesday 13 February.
Booking an appointment for the Meet the Teacher Interviews on Compass
Go to Compass Home Page – Select Parent/Teacher Conferences or go via Community – Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences. Select the session applicable to your child. Follow the prompts.
Interviews will be limited to 10 minutes. If you are booking appointments for more than one teacher, please ensure that you do not book back-to-back appointments. Please leave at least 10 or 15 minutes between each appointment, to give yourself time to get to the next meeting.
BOOKINGS OPEN: Thursday 7 February at 9.15AM
BOOKINGS CLOSE: Thursday 14 February at 4.00 PM
We look forward to meeting with you on these evenings.
