Parent /Student /Teacher interviews


Three way interviews will be conducted during the week commencing Monday 22 June 2015 as part of the Mawson reporting process. Teachers will be available before and after school on most days and until 6:00pm on the evening of Wednesday 24 June 2015. Interviews will be approximately 10 minutes.

These interviews will be “three way interviews:” which means that they involve teachers, the student and their parent /carers. It is important that everyone involved has a chance to contribute to this process.


To co-ordinate the interviews we have employed an online booking system to assist parents in securing their preferred interview times. The procedure is as follows:

  • To secure an appointment time using this system you will need access to the internet.  If you do not have access to the internet your local library may be able to help, or alternatively you can call the school office.


  • The booking system will only be accessible from Thursday 11 June 2015 through to 12:00pm on Monday 22 June 2015.
