The second trimester is the time for student-led parent conferences at St. Boniface Catholic School. Because St. Boniface follows a multi-age school curriculum, assessments are based on oral, written and project-based portfolio materials. In the multi-age school model, students lead a conference using their portfolio as a tool to discuss their academic progress and goals with their parents. This conference gives students an active role in their education and helps them accept responsibility for their learning.
