Student Led Conferences the Years 5 and 6 Way

Angie and I had a chat about how children and parents could maximize the time they need to talk about and share the learning. 15 minutes is not a lot of time for a conversation about the successes and challenges of the past 6 months.
This time Angie prepared several support/guide sheets and the parents and child were given an hour to share via Google docs and Google slides.
Rochelle, Jude and Angie roam between the four groups and talk about specific learning goals.

The preparation by the children and teachers is a credit to them.
All three teachers had made provision to keep siblings quietly occupied while the child at the centre of the conference had an uninterrupted time to share.
I was delighted to be able to see the sharing in action and I know that I would have loved this opportunity as a parent instead of rushing in and being hustled out after 15 minutes. Well done Harakeke Team.
the siblings kept busy
