Recent Parent-Teacher Meetings

Thank you to all who attended recent P/T meetings. If you havent met your child’s teacher(s) and wish to do so, please contact Sue in the school office to make an appointment.

Based on feedback from all concerned it seems the online booking and meeting on one day were successful and we hope to continue with that system next year. It is also agreed that a small increase in the time slots to about 10-12 minutes each would be beneficial to avoid too much waiting around.

Please remember if you are concerned about anything in the school, please contact the class teacher or Principal to make an appointment to discuss.
