Roncalli Fair - this Sunday 20 October from 10.00am - 1.00pm

Senior Conferencing


Dear Parents/Caregivers

Senior Conferencing Monday 14 October 2019

 We wish to invite you to Senior Conferencing on Monday 14 October. Classes will not run on this day but we expect all senior students and their parents to attend Conferencing with their teachers, during arranged interview times. Students are not required to wear College uniform. Junior students will be participating in the Work Day to raise funds for the new Roncalli Community and Sports Centre. Formal classes for Term 4 will begin for all students on Tuesday 15 October. This will be Day 2 of our timetable.

Conferencing is the formal opportunity for both you and your student to receive detailed feedback and feed forward on their academic progress and the next steps to improve learning outcomes. Conferencing works best when all three parties, the student, parents/caregivers and teachers are present. If due to unforeseen or exceptional circumstances you are unable to attend conferencing, we ask that another significant adult attends with the student as it is critical that all students have the opportunity to be part of this dynamic and formal reporting event.

This round of conferencing is the final formal reporting opportunity for 2019. This conference will provide your student with feedback and feed forward from recent assessments which is vital as we lead up to NCEA external assessments and end of year internal assessments.

Subject teachers will be available between 9.00am and 6.00pm in the Gymnasium. Interviews are for 5 minutes duration only. If you need more time for an interview, please arrange an alternative time to meet the teacher concerned.

Booking Your Conferencing times

  • Please log on to and follow the instructions. The school event code is 8gk4w. At the conclusion of booking interviews, your interview timetable will be emailed to you. You are able to return to the site and change your interview times if necessary.
  • Please ring the College Office if you have any questions or do not have access to the internet; office staff are able to make appointments for you. Bookings close at 11.00am on Friday 11 October. 

NCEA Progress and Term 3 Attitude to Learning reports are available on the portal. Attitude to Learning reports are designed to assist parents and students to gauge progress and complement the student conferencing that takes place at the end of the month. If you have not had the opportunity to view these yet, this information can be viewed by visiting the parent portal.  We suggest you go to the student report > caregiver reports and download the PDF document to more easily show any trends. If you are unable to log onto the portal, please telephone Mrs Richards at the College Office on 688 6003 extension 824 and she will be able to assist you with this.

We would also like to give you advance notice of our Course Selection / NCEA Evening for Year 10-12 students. This is on Thursday 17 October from 5.00 - 6.30pm. More detailed information will be emailed closer to the time. 

We look forward to seeing you at Senior Conferencing on Monday 14 October. 

Yours faithfully 

Belinda Leckie

Academic Advisor
