Year 9 Parents’ Consultation Evening – Tuesday, 12th January 2016

 Dear Parents/Guardians

You are invited to attend the Year 9 Parents’ Consultation on Tuesday, 12th January 2016 where you will have the opportunity to meet and consult with teaching staff to discuss your son/daughter’s progress as well as any specific questions about subject choices for next year. We would encourage your child to attend the parents’ evening with you.
Our Careers and Higher Education Counsellors, Mr Campbell and Mr Stott, will both be available on the evening for those parents who have more general questions about the (I)GCSE options process and the potential future impact of choices.
Beginning Tuesday, 5th January (at 12.00pm), you can make appointments to see your children’s teachers via the Gateway in the Parent Consultation module. The booking system will close at 12.00pm on 11th January. Please refer to the following link for instructions on how to make appointments:
In addition, there will be an opportunity to listen to a presentation by Mr. Campbell and Mr. Stott about how our (I)GCSE programmes relate to future pathways and career choices. This seminar will be held in Room 231 at 4.15pm and will be repeated again at 5.30pm. The seminar will last approximately 30 minutes, so please be aware that during your selected seminar you should avoid making appointments to see your child’s subject teachers. Please reply to Ms. Allie Cho at chos6@stconline.edu.hk to confirm which session you wish to attend and how many people will be in attendance.
This year the consultations will be taking place in the classrooms along the third floor corridor, the Senior School Centre and the Library and Learning Centre. A map will be provided on the evening showing the locations of all the teachers.
I would be grateful if you could bear this in mind when making your appointments as you may need more time in between appointments to move around teachers and locations.
You are advised to bring the confirmed appointment listing with you on 12th January. This can be printed via Gateway.
The Gateway can be accessed at the link https://sc.tg.esf.edu.hk. If you have any difficulties logging into or using the Gateway please email our support desk at gatewaysupport@shatincollege.edu.hk.
We look forward to seeing you on the Tuesday, 12th January.
Yours Sincerely,
Mrs Sian May                                        Ms Mary Paciello
Head of Middle School                       Head of Year 9
