Students responsible for their own learning!
In order to help you better understand what is going on with your child’s learning, we are continuing to hold Student Led Conferences this semester.
Students will be leading the meeting and explaining to you what they have been learning in various subject areas this year. Your child has reflected on their learning and is preparing to share their reflection and some of their work with you. This will include information about their efforts, achievements and continued focus areas.
Why Student Led Conferences?
Student Led Conferences provide an opportunity to encourage students and share their learning journey. Students are encouraged to reflect on and discuss their learning honestly and openly.
Student Led Conferences encourage and support students to manage and take responsibility for their own learning. They guide students to develop respect for their learning and the learning of others in the school environment.
Student Led Conferences are an opportunity to meet collaboratively with students about their learning
Value: Pride and Personal Best
Students are learning to assess their own growth through reflecting on their work and learning goals. They are encouraged to consider their learning strengths, challenges and goals. Student Led Conferences are an opportunity for parents and students to recognise effort, perseverance and achievement. They enable students to demonstrate pride in their achievements and learning
