Year 12 Academic Plenary Meeting Evening – Friday 23 February 2018

Academic Plenaries are opportunities for students, supported by teachers, to share their learning progress with their parents. Teachers will be available for 5-minute meetings from 3:30pm to 6.30pm in the School GymnasiumShould you have a matter to discuss that will take longer than the allocated time, we request that you make an appointment with the class teacher.

Bookings for the Plenary meetings are made using PTO free App or website (instructions below). The system is now open for bookings and will remain open until midnight on Thursday 22 February. On the day of the Plenaries, changes or cancellations will need to be advised by email.

 Year 7 Laptops

The students in Year 7 were all very excited to receive their laptops this week. We ask the girls to look after their device by using the laptop carry case provided, and to be mindful where they use their device so that it does not accidentally fall off a chair, desk or lap.

We encourage the appropriate use of  laptops for digital organisation and to enhance learning. To this end, the Year 7 Advisors lead the girls through a series of rotating workshops.  These  included understanding how to perform backup through “Backup and Sync” in the Google Suite via Google Drive, the creation of folders, how to use Outlook mail folders and rules, the basics of Word and an introduction to Canvas.

If your daughters have any issues with their laptop please  encourage them to ask teachers for advice, visit the staff at the IT help desk or email me.
