Year 11 Parents’ Consultation Evening Bookings via Gateway

Dear Parents/Guardians,
Year 11 Parents’ Consultation Evening Bookings via Gateway
You are invited to attend this Parents’ Consultation on Wednesday, 9th November 2016 where you will have the opportunity to meet and consult with teaching staff to discuss your son/daughter’s progress. We strongly encourage the Year 11 students to also attend as this can greatly help with discussions about their learning.
Beginning Monday, 31st October at 12.00 noon, you can make the appointment to see members of staff you would particularly like to meet. This will be done via Gateway, in the Parent Consultation module. The booking system will close at 12.00 noon on Tuesday, 8th November. Please refer to the following link for instructions on how to do this:
Instructions on How to Use the Parent Consultation Module:
There is a detailed floor plan attached to this letter which indicates the location of all subject teachers. Therefore, please use this as you are planning your appointments to ensure that there is sufficient movement time between teachers and locations. We recommend a minimum of five minutes between appointments.
Floor Plan:
You are advised to bring the confirmed appointment listing with you on 9th November. This can be printed via Gateway. There is no need to make appointments with GTS teachers as students have not yet completed a major assessment and GTS teachers also teach other exam subjects.
Year 11 students will be having one to one discussions with their tutors in the week commencing the 7th November in order for such meetings to run parallel to subject feedback.  These meetings will be used to discuss Post-16 academic choices and future career pathways as well as set academic targets and discuss study strategies for the forthcoming IGCSE mock exams after Christmas.  It is always a priority for these meetings to also focus on issues of individual student well-being.
The Gateway can be accessed at the link https://sc.tg.esf.edu.hk. If you have any difficulties logging in to or using the Gateway, please email our support desk at gatewaysupport@shatincollege.edu.hk.
We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday, 9th November.
Yours faithfully
Sian May                                    Debbie Hanley
