Three Way Conferences
Thank you to all families who engaged in three-way conferences this week, a wonderful opportunity to share and celebrate learning this term through virtual conversation.
Parents, students and teachers enjoyed sharing reflections and work samples that demonstrated outstanding progress in learning, and candidly discussed surprises and life lessons learnt through the remote learning experience. Many thanks to our teachers (and you!) for supporting our students to feel empowered and celebrated in this process.
Congratulations to all our students who responded to a number of whole school initiatives that have taken place this term.
