Student Progress Meetings

26-October-22

Upcoming Transition Year Student Progress Meeting (online scheduler now open!)

In-person Student Progress Meetings will take place from 4:15pm to 6:45pm on Wednesday, 14 December and each individual teacher slot will be maximum 5 minutes. To ensure that there is efficiency to the meetings and to be mindful of people’s time, we are going to schedule the meetings in advance, using our scheduling software (just like last year).

What will the Student Progress Meeting be like in Transition Year?

The Student Progress Meeting in Transition Year is a different process. When you meet with the teachers, students will be asked to present on the learning they have been doing in that subject since September. It is a super opportunity for the students to take ownership of their learning and present it in an effective clear way with the support of the classroom teacher. Students will be given adequate time in school to plan for what they will talk about in the various subjects.

!!Deadline to schedule appointments is 5pm on Friday 02nd of December 2022!!

  • Before 5pm on Friday, 2nd of December we ask that you use our scheduler to schedule appointments for 9 teachers only. The website we are using for this is https://ptmorg.com.
  • On the page that opens, click ‘Parent/Guardian Login’
  • You will then need to put in the School Roll Number (this is 68307J for Firhouse ETSS) and the VSware ID associated with your child.
  • The unique VSware ID for your child can be found within VSware under ‘Personal Info > School’ (this is true for both the desktop version https://firhouseetss.vsware.ie and school app version of VSware).
  • When you enter these details, it will bring you to a page where you will see only the teachers your child has. You will then need to rank the teachers in order of preference so a schedule can be created (ranking 9 of them from 1-9).
  • The schedule for the entire year group will be created once the deadline of 5pm on Friday 2nd of December has passed. It will not be possible to schedule meetings once this date has passed.
  • When the deadline has passed, you will be able to see your unique timetable using the same login details on the same website.

Important things to note about scheduling appointments:

  • Due to the huge number of teachers and subjects, and the 150 minute window for the entire year group, it will only be possible for you to meet with a selection of teachers. So please rank only rank 8 subjects from 1-9 and leave the others blank with a number 0. This tells the computer which 9 teachers you’d like to meet.
  • Preference matters – you give your number 1 to the teacher you most wish to see, followed by number 2, and so on until 9 have been preferences.
  • When you have the preferences done correctly, be sure to submit by clicking ‘I Will Attend This Meeting’ in the bottom right hand corner.
  • If you are unable to attend, we still need to know. You can do this by clicking the 'I Will Be Unable To Attend This Meeting' in the bottom left hand corner of your child's scheduling page.
