These conferences take place three to six times in a year. The purpose of the conference is for the student to celebrate achievements, reflect on their learning journey, and set goals for the future. This is the beauty of the IB-PYP Program. Student-led conferences can take a number of different forms, but roles stay the same. A student-led conference is similar to a parent-teacher conference, but the student is present and in charge of leading the discussion. It provides an opportunity to discuss how the teacher and parents can help the student succeed. Parents admire how much their children can take responsibility for learning, in a child-centered school.
