Parent Teacher Conferences 13/14 April


As you will be aware, the forthcoming Parent Teacher Conferences are primarily designed to achieve the following:

  • To formally meet to share information which will provide both parties with a better understanding of your child, including their interests (academic, cultural, sporting, recreational), successes, aspirations, and other factors (e.g health) which may have an affect on your child’s education, health and well-being.
  • To allow you to share your aspirations and goals for the year.

School will finish at 12:30pm on Wednesday 13 April 2016.  Parents are encouraged to collect their children at 12:30pm.  If your child requires supervision at school until 3.00pm please complete the bottom of the form sent home.

Discussions will be limited to 15 minutes, and if more time is needed an arrangement can be made for a later meeting.  Because of a very tight interview timetable it is essential that you arrive on time.  

Interviews are booked online. You will need to book online at www.schoolinterviews.co.nz.
The school code you will need to enter is  75y5r. You will need to enter your details and choose your child’s classroom teacher. If internet access is a problem or you need help please contact Linda or Tristan in the office (office@maraetaibeach.school.nz) or phone on 536 6570. This will need to be done by Friday 8 April.

Thank you for your assistance
