ES News

On 20 February 2009 Elementary School had it's first portfolio conference for Preschool to grade 6.

The morning was busy with students practicing for their conference which was to take place in the afternoon. Each guest was personally invited by the student to come and view their portfolio. Guests included parents, other teachers, High School students & family friends. Students showcased their work which included projects, essay etc from each subject. They spoke about their work - how it has improved and what they were required to work on. Guests in turn asked questions & shared their views on the student's work.

At the end of the session guests commented on how they had appreciated being part of an experience that enabled them to learn more about the students. For most of the guests & students it was a very emotional and proud moment. As a school we are looking forward to conducting the portfolio conference on a regular basis.
