Secondary Parent Teacher Meetings

Newsletter | Secondary Update

One of the Core Values that I believe we do very well here at Melton Christian College is our Core Value of Community. What better way to create Community than to set aside an entire day, allowing time for teachers and parents to meet with each other and discuss ways in which we can partner together, with the single aim to support and guide our students. We do have a day set aside for this; we call it Secondary Parent Teacher Meetings. It is only through partnership, that is supported through these meetings, that we can achieve great results.

Ecclesiastes 4:12 states that ‘though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.’ Isn’t a cord of three strands a perfect analogy of what we seek to be? These three strands – student, parent and teacher – working together in partnership. Parent Teacher Meetings can support this partnership of three strands.

You would have received an email from me by now notifying you of these upcoming Parent Teacher Meetings.

They will be held at the end of Term One this year on Thursday April 7, 2022. There was an overwhelming positive response from parents last year around Parent Teacher Meetings being held on ZOOM and being accessible to many more parents, even those who could not leave work to travel to the College, and because of this, and along with the necessity to avoid large gatherings for COVID safety reasons, we have decided to continue our Parent Teacher Meetings again on ZOOM this year.

All you need to do for the moment is click on the link you will find in the latest email sent to you and book the times you are available for each teacher. You only need to see each teacher once, even if that teacher has your child for more than one subject and you only have to see the teachers you would like to see. Closer to the day, I will send out further information on how to access each teacher’s ZOOM room on the day.

Please contact the College if you have any questions or concerns around the upcoming Secondary Parent Teacher meetings.
