ISHCMC Primary - Parent Teacher Connection Conference Information

On Wednesday the 28th September we will have our Parent Teacher Connection Conferences.

These conferences have a focus on connection and relationships. Research tells us that connection between home and school is critical to learning and achievement. We seek to understand our students and you, their parents and work together with you to enhance learning and personal growth.

Protocol for the Connection Conference:


Teachers will connect with you sharing a little about themselves and also asking about you and your child/children.

Sharing information…

Teachers will ask if there is anything you wish them to know about your child/children. Teachers will share a little around what they have noticed about your child/children, offering observations around:

  • Friendships

  • Engagement

  • Approaches to learning

  • Life at home / outside school

  • Language profile at home
