School Reports and Three Way Conferences
We will be sending out our student report cards on Friday the 1st of February. We will be making a change this year by sending them as a pdf document and not as a printed report. This is due to our move to becoming a more paperless school and of course it is better for the environment.

We do understand that reports are needed for applications to schools and so any family who needs a signed and stamped paper copy can ask at the school office and we will provide one. 


You will soon be receiving invitations from your homeroom teachers to sign up for a time to join your child and teacher for a progress meeting. For parents new to the school we call this a three way conference as it is for you and your teacher but also your child to join the conversation. We hope you enjoy the experience!
