Student Led Conference Booking Code

Student Led Conferences - Tuesday 2nd July  3.15pm -7.45pm

Your children are preparing to share their learning with you.  Remember, there are six conferences happening in the classroom at the same time.  The teacher will make contact with every family at some point during the conference.  They are there to support and prompt if necessary but won’t take over from your child.

On the night of the conference you will be given your child’s mid year report.  The report states how well each child is doing according to the National Curriculum Levels and what their level of effort is.  The report also includes how well your child is developing within the Key Competencies.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at the Student Led Conferences.  The code you will need to access the online booking system is kkqya at

  • There are six conferences happening in the classroom at the same time.  The teacher will make contact with every family at some point during the conference.  They are there to support and prompt if necessary but won’t take over from your child.
  • Your child will share celebrations and successes and what they might be working on in Life Long Learning and the RICH Hearts.

Strike Information

Dear Parents and Caregivers

The NZEi have advised the Red Beach School Board of Trustees that the principal and teachers at our school will be taking strike action on Wednesday 29th May 2019 for a full day. 

The Board has carefully considered the availability of teaching staff, and unfortunately decided that we can’t provide the normal teaching services during the strike so the school will officially be closed for instruction on this occasion. 

Accordingly, it’s important that you make alternative arrangements for the care of your child/children during the period of the strike. 

Our onsite holiday programme “Kelly Club” will be offering a programme on this day – please contact Kelly Club directly if you have any questions: .

We know that this is inconvenient for parents and students alike, but please be assured that student safety is our main concern.

Thank you for your understanding.

Yours sincerely

Andrew Short
Chair Board of Trustees
