3-Way ConVERSOs: Time to Share, Connect and Reflect

Dear Middle Loop Learners & Families,

We would like to invite and welcome parents and learners for a ConVERSO on Friday, 17 May. We are offering a face-to-face ConVERSO or a Google Meet Video Call ConVERSO.

  • There will be NO  lessons or instruction for LL and ML on Friday 17 May
  • There will be NO ECAs for LL and ML learners on Friday 17 May
  • Only UL classes and ECAs will be held as usual
  • ConVERSOs are between LDs, parents/guardians, and learners.
  • Learners will attend and leave the ConVERSOs with parents/guardians.

Once you have selected the appointment(s) that suit you from the Sign-Up link provided below, we will then reach out to confirm your 20-minute or 10-minute ConVERSO slot according to the below four groupings.

For parents who choose to join us in a face-to-face ConVERSO use the room number below and show up 5 minutes before your ConVERSO.

For parents who opt for a video call, you can click on the Google Meet in the Google Calendar invite to access the video.

Whether you book a F2F or video call, each LD you have made the appointment with will email your VERSO email address with a google calendar invite before 3:00pm on Wednesday 15 May.

We need all appointments to be made before 3:00pm, Wednesday 15 May  Learning Designers will confirm after this to secure your desired time slot.

During this ConVERSO, Learning Designers will be driving the ConVERSO to share what learners have been learning and their progress. Learners will also be sharing their learning. This is all part of promoting leadership, building confidence and strengthening communication skills. There will also be time for parents to ask questions and learn more about other labs and workshops.

Please contact the Learning Designer directly if you have any specific questions. 

All email contacts are outlined below.

While this day is a school day, it is not an instructional day for learners. Please join us for your ConVERSO appointment and then your child/ren are to go home with you. If parents have opted for a video call, learners are to stay home. Learners are invited to continue to work on any workshop or lab using the HeadRush task board.

If you wish to also connect with your child’s single subject Learning Designer, please use the link to secure a 10-minute time slot. All single subject Learning Designers will be available for a 10-minute appointment in a designated room shown in red below.

We encourage all parents to meet with their child’s Community Time LD for C5-6 or Math Lab LD for C7-8 for a 20-minute ConVERSO.

Parents then have the option to also meet other single-subject LDs for a 10-minute ConVERSO.
