Thanks to all the parents, caregivers and whanau who made time to attend our Student Led Conferences this week. It is another example of the outstanding support and encouragement you give to our tamariki and kura. The conferences give students the opportunity to take a lead role in reporting their progress to parents. They help students to understanding that their efforts are integral to making a positive difference to their learning and allow them to accept a share of the accountability and responsibility for their progress. Even very young students enjoy explaining their learning with parents/caregivers. As they get older, they are increasingly able to show independence and articulate their learning challenges and successes effectively.
