Head of Middle School

We have had an exceptionally smooth start to the school year. This is largely due to the quality of the information you provided to us last year, your attendance at the Parent Information Evenings and supporting our boys as they come to grips with the increased expectations, which are a step up from where they were last year. Thank you.

In Week 5 and 6 we have set aside time for Parent Teacher Interviews. These are short 10 minute meetings with your son's Homeroom teacher that focus on engagement, organisation and participation. For new families it is also an opportunity to get feedback on how your son has transitioned into Scotch College and Middle School, how his friendship group is developing and a chance to ask questions about programmes and opportunities. It is also a forum for you to give feedback to the teacher on how you think your son is coping and the highpoints or the struggles you feel he is wrestling with. For Boarding families we will offer a Boarders Parent Teacher Interview session on Thursday 2 April, following the Senior School session.

A global email was sent out last Thursday with instructions on how to book a session, via www.schoolinterviews.com.au with your son's Homeroom teacher. It is important to know that whilst we have these formalised meeting and interview opportunities throughout the year, if you ever feel you need to talk with a teacher, that opportunity exists all year round, homeroom and specialist teachers alike, by simply contacting your son's teacher.
