Three way interviews take place during term 2 after half yearly reports. A three way interview involves the parent, teacher and student, with the central focus on the student presenting their work and talking about their learning and achievements. Student portfolios are the centrepiece for a three way interview.
Positive parent partnerships are critical to our success. Recent research indicates that parent involvement in their children's education has a significant and positive effect on educational outcomes. Your child's teacher will contact you in the first week of school to introduce themselves and invite you to a parent meeting early in the year. We encourage you to contact your child's teacher if you have any queries or concerns. There are many ways in which you can become involved in your child's school: from participation in the P&C, School Board or as a parent volunteer in the classroom.
All permission notes for activities outside the school must be returned to the school signed by a parent/carer. Students cannot attend an excursion without a signed permission note.
The school cannot generally be held responsible for the intervening acts of third parties that occur to lead to the loss, damage or theft of student’s personal property.
Parents /carers and students are advised that schools do not provide private insurance cover to automatically compensate for the loss, damage or theft of personal property and nor will they be legally liable for their loss.
School staff is under no obligation to take responsibility for students’ personal property. However, where such a responsibility is taken, staff will ensure that valuable items are kept in an appropriately secure location that has limited access.
No responsibility will be accepted for property inadvertently left on school premises.
Parents / carers and students are reminded:
• To avoid bringing valuable property to school;
• To take steps to insure all valuable items;
• That valuable items are bought to school at the personal risk of the owner and that schools decline any responsibility for the damage, loss or theft of students’ personal property; and
• To report any suspicious activity to school staff.
