Marmara Student Led Conferences: Friday 8th May 2015

Dear Primary School Parents,

The Student Led Conferences are a time when students show their academic growth through the year in homeroom and single subject environments.

The Student Led Conferences are scheduled for Marmara on Friday, 8th May. Each student will have a 30 minute appointment time to share their learning with you in their homeroom. Kindly indicate your preferred appointment session via the Google form link below. Teachers will then collate the preferences to construct a schedule of appointments, which will be posted on class websites early next week.

Google Form Link: http://goo.gl/forms/IQ3jzsXeam

Students would like to share their learning in all of their classes, both homeroom and single subject environments. The single subjects are Music, PE, French, Turkish, Art, EAL and learning support. There will be an Art Exhibition to share the students’ artwork. For appointments after 3pm, we recommend that families visit single subject areas first in order to ensure that your child has sufficient time to share their learning.

Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact your classroom teacher. We look forward to seeing you on Friday, 8th May.

Yours sincerely,
The Primary Leadership Team
