Kia ora Parents and Caregivers

Wellington College continues to review the methods we use to communicate our students’ academic progress and performance.

In 2018, we are holding two Academic Conferences. 

Format

The academic conferences will be 15 minute, one-on-one meetings between tutor, student and parent – the first will take place early in Term 2 and the second towards the end of Term 3. At the first meeting, the student’s first term report, his academic performance thus far, his attendance, his pastoral care record and his goals will be discussed. The student will be expected to make a plan of action to enhance his academic attainment, and his tutor will give parents feedback during the year as to how he is progressing with this. At the second meeting, the student’s progress and his second set of reports will be reviewed. This second conference is deliberately placed before the practice external examinations so students and parents can still make meaningful changes, if necessary. 

The feedback from the 2017 Academic Conferences was very positive and we will continue to make changes to improve the feedback that both parents and students obtain.

So please make note of the dates of these 2018 Academic Conferences. They are 16 May and 29 August. More information with regards to bookings will be sent out closer to these dates.
