The School welcomes you to the Year 8 Academic Conference evening. The details for this evening are:
on Thursday 9 May 2019
beginning 6:00pm and concluding at 9.00pm (check your individual schedule)
to be held in the Snow Centre
all Year 8 teachers as well as Heads of Student House will be present
students (in school uniform) should attend with their parents
refreshments will be served in the Snow Centre foyer
A key focus of this evening is to provide you and your child with a fair and honest assessment of how they
have transitioned from Year 7 to Year 8.
A list of the appointments will be publish on CGS Connect shortly. All appointments will be for five minutes. As far as possible we
have tried to allow a break between interviews to allow you to move between them, however we have tried to group interviews together to avoid a lengthy evening for you. It is very important for the smooth functioning of the evening that interview times are
strictly observed, both the beginning and the end. Please remember to bring the appointments schedule with you.
Our directions to staff are to keep to their schedule, so please understand when you are late for an appointment that the teacher
may need to ask you to return at a later time in the evening when he/she is free. It may mean a subsequent phone call to the teacher the following day.
Your schedule of appointment times may indicate “Not requested”; you should take this to mean that the teachers have no serious concerns
about your child. Nevertheless, they will be present from 6:00pm until 9:00pm, and may have some time available for unscheduled interviews. Teachers hope to talk briefly to as many parents as possible.
If you are unable to be present on the evening I would appreciate hearing from you. Please contact the Academic Office, Ms Lee Miller
via email email@example.com.
We look forward to welcoming you on Thursday 9 May during your allotted interview times.
