Conferences: Pick A Time

The ES Student Led Conference for Elementary School is scheduled to take place on 30 & 31 May

G5 students will not have a conference with their classroom teachers as they will have their Exhibition instead, but parents can still book conferences with the G5 Specialist teachers.

What is Student Led Conference

Student Led Conferences involve the student and the parents. The students are responsible for leading the conference, and also take responsibility for their learning by sharing the process with their parents. The conference involves the student discussing and reflecting upon samples of work that they have previously chosen to share with their parents. These samples have been previously selected with guidance and support from the teacher, and could be from the student's portfolio. (Making the PYP happen: A curriculum framework for international primary education, 2009)
