Plenary Meetings

Plenary Meetings

Members of staff at the school meet with students and their parents to discuss their academic and extra-curricular pursuits, their social and emotional learning, their faith and values.  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 Academic Plenary Meeting is held in Term 2.   These 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. This is an opportunity for the student to reflect on her learning across the range of her academic subjects and to discuss all aspects of her learning with her parents and the teacher of each subject.
  • The Holistic Plenary Meeting is held in Term 3 and involves the student, her parents, and her Advisor.  Each student shares her reflections on her growth across the FACE elements in all her learning experiences – across each subject, as well as in  her extra-curricular pursuits and across any community service experiences.  Holistic Plenaries are compulsory for students in Years 7-9.
