Parent-Teacher Connect Meetings

 Bookings are now open for the Parent-Teacher Connect Meetings on Thursday 15th February, running from 12.30pm to 8pm.  As per last year,this year the meetings will be in-person.

You can book times via Compass.

Students are dismissed at 12pm on the day, but we are able to supervise students from then until 3.30pm if you are not able to collect your children earlier. Please advise your child’s teacher or the Office Staff, or send an email to emerald.ps@education.vic.gov.au, if you need to have your child/children stay until 3.30pm.

These meetings are a great opportunity for parents and carers to help teachers to get to know their child/children, reflect on the student’s learning growth and data from 2023, and to establish the ongoing learning partnership to support the students to do their best throughout the year.

Please contact me at the school if you have any queries:
emerald.ps@education.vic.gov.au
or (03) 5968 4311.
