Whanaungatanga- 3 way Parent-Teacher-Child Interviews

Hi families

Whanaungatanga:  3 Way Parent-Teacher-Child Interviews

Please note these interviews will now take place a week later on Tuesday 23rd and Thursday 25th February.

This year we have made a change to our normal goal setting interviews. We want these interviews to be based around the concept of whanaungatanga which is about relationships, kinship, and a sense of family connection. We know that we are better able to understand and teach your children when we have strong and positive relationships with them and you, their parents / caregivers. We want this to be a time where we all share information - It will be a chance to talk to your child’s teacher and your child about the year ahead and how we can work together to help your child be successful. These interviews will take place on Tuesday 23rd and Thursday 25th February.

Please take this opportunity to come and talk with your child and their teacher. It is very important to get involved in your child’s education.

These interviews will take place starting at 2.15pm with the last interview being at 6.45pm.  To book a time slot, please go to and use the code B7LYY.  If you have no internet capability please book at the office. 

Please note that school will finish at 2pm on both of these days.
