Understanding NCEA Information presentation
Wed March 21 – 6pm – CBHS The Hall
Many parents feel frustrated when talking with their son about academic progress at school because they don’t feel as though they know enough about how the NCEA system works? If this sounds like you then you are certainly not alone. NCEA was introduced into schools between 2002-2004. As parents we did not go through this system so it can seem very foreign to us. The staff at CBHS are keen to assist you in gaining a better understanding of how NCEA works and become more involved in your son’s education.
We are very aware that families who take an interest in what their son is studying and who understand how the assessment and grading system works feel more confident when discussing their son’s academic progress. I strongly encourage you to take the time to learn how the NCEA system works as it may feel like you are left in the dark with so much new terminology and statistics. This presentation will allow for Q+A throughout.
