What do I do if I want to see my child’s teacher?

We encourage parents to arrange a meeting with their child’s teacher.  However, you will need to:

  • Ring, send a note or email the teacher to arrange a meeting for either before or after school. 
  • Teachers are responsible for all of the children in their class between 8.15am and 2.50pm.  Please do not interrupt. There is no such thing as a quick minute! Teachers will respond to emails within 48 hours. 
  • Common courtesy is required by all involved in a meeting.  

Please remember we are a team and we work together for all our children.

Whakawhanaungatanga: At Glenbrook School we work as a community together.
