Your Individual Education Meeting is one of the most important components of Ao Tawhiti Unlimited Discovery. At this meeting your son/daughter has an opportunity to discuss their passions, interests and needs and be a major part of the decision making around their learning for the coming term. The student, parent(s) and Learning Advisor negotiate together to create an individual learning programme that meets the needs of the student. As the first educator of your son/daughter you play a major role in the direction of the learning for the term ahead. You should also expect to hear about how your son/daughter has been going with their previous term’s goals and be able to factor this information into what goals are set for the coming term.
It is absolutely imperative that we have one of these meetings per term to create the plan for the term that follows. IEMs take place on a needs basis. For most students it takes place at least once a term, but can be as regular as needed. These meetings are not optional and you do need to book one.
In preparation for the upcoming term we would like you to spend some time looking through the available classes and discussing some appropriate goals for the term ahead.
