Welcome to Highwood School

Meet the Teacher Conferences


Meet the teacher conferences will be taking place on Thursday, September 22nd and Friday, September 23rd.  Conferences will be 15 minutes long and provides an opportunity for you to share information about your child with the teacher.  We will no longer be using the online system Pick-A-Time to book an interview, but instead use CBE’s online system. This is the same system that is used to make fee payments online.  The online booking system starts on Friday, September 16 at 8:00am.


Please click the MY CBE Account button located on the left side of this web page.
