Parent Teacher Meetings

If you need to meet with your child’s class teacher you must make an appointment. This can be done by contacting the teacher concerned by note or by ringing the school office. Teachers cannot leave their classes unattended to talk with parents on the telephone or to meet without an appointment. Formal Parent Teacher Meetings usually take place towards the end of Term 1.
