Parent teacher night for Years 7 to 10 will be held over two nights this year: Thursday 20th July and Monday 24th July. You can book on one or both of the nights. Please see information below.
Parramatta High School has adopted the EdvalPTN Interview Scheduling System for parent teacher nights.
EdvalPTN is a web based electronic scheduling system for interviews, where parents initially ‘request' interviews as opposed to booking them. This important difference allows better results for participants, including better equity, educational benefits, and far more compact time schedules for both teachers and parents who are considered as a whole. Research shows that removal of students from the booking process greatly increases the level of parent involvement. Less focused students do not always book interviews well, and traditional paper booking systems don't provide time-efficient schedules for all.
Once the majority of parents have requested interviews, the overall schedule is generated by the school. Parents may then adjust their granted bookings online if needed (or add more). Training videos are also available on the site if desired, but it is very simple to use.
The site parent-interviews.com has information on how the EdvalPTN system works, with parent tips, and comparisons of all other methods of scheduling parent teacher interviews.
Instructions on how to book online are emailed to students and parents within 2 weeks of the evening.
Please visit edval.com.au/book to book your interview time.
If you are having difficulties with the system, please ask your child to see their year advisor, their deputy principal or Mr Wise to assist. They will need the times you are available and a list of teachers you wish to see.
Your final interview schedule will be available 2 or 3 days before the evening and you can print it off. You will be notified when it is available.
