Information about the Parent – Teacher Conferences

We are holding our Year 11, 12 & 13 Parent Teacher Conferences on Wednesday 18th & Thursday 19th May from 3:30 – 5:30pm in various locations at Garin College.

The length of each conference is five minutes and will enable you to discuss with our teachers the learning, progress and next steps in learning for your son or daughter. 

Please make sure when making a booking that you allow one interview space (5 minutes) before moving onto the next interview as they occur across several rooms throughout the College. 

Please note Mrs Eggers & Mr Kersten (Year 13 & Year 11 Deans) are there in a teaching and learning capacity. If you would like to set a meeting with them, please send this through an email to them directly. 

If there is a teacher who you would like to see and are unable to on both days, please email them and they can organise an email response for you.

The system will allow only one interview per Garin learner per teacher for each of the days. In order to allow all whānau equal access to book appointments, please do not book for the same learner and teacher on both days. Multiple bookings will be removed.
