Parent-Student-Teacher Interviews - Online Bookings open

Parent-Student-Teacher Interviews - Online Bookings open Tuesday 13 September

Parent-Teacher-Student interviews will be held online in Term 3 on Monday 19 September (4:00pm-6:00pm) and Wednesday 21 September (4:00pm-6:30pm) via Microsoft Teams. Each interview has an allocated 6 minute timeslot. If you need to speak to a teacher on a more in- depth basis, please contact the teacher directly.

This is a mutually beneficial opportunity for parents to discuss their daughter’s progress with the class room teacher.  Including your daughter in the interview helps promote independent learning.

If your daughter’s teacher is requesting an interview with you, in regard to either Achievement or Application, you will receive an email indicating this.  Please note: a teacher may request an interview both to commend a student’s performance as well as discuss any concerns about progress. If teachers do not request an interview with you, you are still encouraged to make appointments with any teacher to discuss your daughter’s progress.

Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO) Booking Instructions

You will be using the “Parent Teacher On-Line” (PTO) web-based software for these interviews. This will allow you to book the interview times that suit you from any internet-connected computer or from your smartphone.  If you wish to book appointments from your mobile you will need to download the free PTO app from either the apple app store or the google play store. Instructions on how to use this app and the relevant school code are available from the PTO login screen.

You will have access to the Parent Teacher On-Line (PTO) system from Tuesday 13 September. If you currently have an email address lodged with the College you will be able to:

  • Go to the school’s website page,
  • Click on MY MERICI, left hand corner
  • Click on PTO icon as displayed on bottom right corner
  • You will then be directed to the Merici PTO web site
  • Enter your surname and either obtain your PIN/enter your PIN

(NB - First time access will be to obtain your pin. Pins are generated and do not remain the same from the previous semester).

Once you have requested your pin an email will be sent to the nominated family email address. This email contains a secure link that when clicked will log you straight into PTO for you to make your bookings. If you do not receive an email, please contact the College as we may have an incorrect email address recorded for you.

For those families where the College has no current family email address on file, we would appreciate it if you could contact the College and provide a family email contact if at all possible.

Full instructions are provided to you after log in.  Please note the following points:

  • When you log on, the system displays only your daughter’s teachers.
  • Every parent/guardian receives a login and pin on request – you can make a booking using one as a family booking or both if you want individual bookings.

  • Please leave 6 minutes between appointments to allow for time to move between online rooms.

  • Please note that bookings cannot be made after 8:00am on the day of the interview.
