Mid Year Interviews- online booking system

During the last week of this term commencing Monday, 23rd June- 27th June, parents will have the opportunity to book a fifteen minute interview with your child’s class teacher. Parent/Teacher interviews are an important avenue for two- way communication about the progress of your child’s learning and therefore we strongly encourage you to avail yourself of this opportunity.

Bookings are done on-line by accessing the website at www.schoolinterviews.com.au

Commence by entering the school code which is: KAVPP and then click GO.

The rest is done in three easy steps:

  1. Enter your name, your student’s name(s) and your email address.
  2. On the next page choose the teachers you wish to meet. Don’t forget the Specialists!
  3. Then you’ll see a timetable showing when your chosen teachers are available. Simply click on the times that suit you.

When you have finished, your interview timetable will be emailed to you. If something comes up and you need to make a time change, you can return to the site and change your times.

 The website will open at 9-00am on Friday 6th June and close on Sunday 15th June at 8-00pm.

The Specialists also include Raine Stoncius (Reading Recovery Grade 1); Jan Coleman (Literacy Intervention P-2); and Jan Trend (Science Leaders and Senior Science)

The above information will also appear on your class blog at http://grade1laburnum.global2.vic.edu.au/

If you have any queries please contact the school office on 9898 5811.
