Plenary Meetings

Plenary Meetings

Members of staff at the school meet with students and their parents to discuss their progress.  These meetings are called Plenary Meetings.

Plenary Meetings provide an opportunity for parents to enter into their daughter’s learning in an authentic and highly significant way. Each student presents her learning and holistic growth to her parents in an environment which is both structured and supportive.

Plenary meetings promote independence, reflection, sound communication skills, positive relationships, understanding and recognition of a student’s own identity.  They also demonstrate clearly the integration of the FACE elements across the curriculum.

The Plenary Meetings take two forms:

  • The Holistic Plenary Meeting is held in Term 2 and involves the student, her parents, and her Advisor.  The student will share her reflections on her growth across the FACE elements in all her learning experiences – subject specific as well Integrated Learning; learning both inside and outside the classroom.
  • The Academic Plenary Meeting is held in Term 3 after the Semester One report has been received.  This meeting promotes independence, reflection, sound communication skills, positive relationships, understanding and recognition of a student’s own identity. They also demonstrate clearly the integration of the FACE elements across the curriculum. This is an opportunity for the student to reflect on her learning in a particular academic subject and to discuss all aspects of her learning with her parents and the teacher of that subject.
