Book your WCS Student Led Conferences ONLINE!

November 07, 2019

Did you know that Student Led Conferences occur twice per year in all of our schools. The reason for having individual students lead their own conference is so:

  • Students can share a portfolio of their daily work.
  • Students can more easily see the relevance of their daily work if they know someone beyond the walls of the school will see it.
  • It can individualize the learning experience so that parents/guardians can see the learning experience through the perspective of their child rather than the teacher.
  • Students have the ability and desire to tell their story through the contents of the portfolio.
  • Students attach meaning to a portfolio item so that it increases learning and relevance.
  • A student’s achievements can be celebrated with their parent and teacher.

Student Led Conferences are facilitated by a homeroom teacher or advisory group teacher and are to be scheduled for every student so that all students have an opportunity to share their learning with their parents.  Student Led Conferences are a great opportunity to be engaged in your child’s education.  If you are unable to attend on the nights of conferences please arrange to attend at a different time.  

We look forward to seeing you at Student Led Conferences!​
