2019 Parent Teacher Interviews (PP-Yr 6)

At St Damien’s Catholic Primary School we believe in the benefits that evolve from strong relationships and communication between teachers, parents and students. Part of this process is the dialogue that exists in regards to student progress at school. Parent /Teacher Interviews provide a structured platform for crucial conversations to occur. We warmly invite all parents to maintain contact with their child’s teacher throughout the whole year to ensure that the best possible chances of development can be made.

In 2019 we are using for parents to book for their Parent / Teacher Interviews.

These Interviews are being held on Tuesday, 18th June, 2019

Please remember this day is an early finish (12pm) for all students.
