Term 3 Parent Teacher Interviews using Microsoft Teams

We welcome families to join in the educational conversation at any opportunity.

Parent, Student, Teacher Interviews provide an opportunity for parents and students to meet with subject teachers, Pastoral Group Leaders, Heads of House and Learning Enrichment coordinators to discuss student progress, acknowledge the areas in which the student is doing well and provide suggestions for ways in which the student can continue to improve their performance.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, Term 3 Parent Teacher Interviews for students will be held online using Microsoft Teams on

Thursday 10th September
Thursday 17th September
from 4:00pm - 7:30pm

Teachers across all year levels will be available for each session. We encourage parents and students to attend the online interviews to reflect on their child’s progress and performance and determine future learning and wellbeing goals to increase their success.  Parent, Student, Teacher Interviews together with the Term 3 Remote Learning Work habits and Online Progressive Feedback via Notre Dame Engage provides multiple opportunities for parents and students to receive genuine feedback.  We encourage all parents to attend Parent, Student, Teacher Interviews and to regularly review their child’s performance via Notre Dame Engage.
