Sarah's mum: Hello Mrs Marsh, you're Sarah's English teacher aren't you?
Mrs Marsh:  Yes, that's right.
Sarah's mum: I'm Maureen, her mum and this is Robert, her dad.
Sarah's dad:  Hello
Mrs Marsh: Nice to meet you. Well, I'm happy to tell you Sarah's doing great, really well, especially considering the amount of time she had off because she was in hospital. She seems really well now though and she's studying hard.
Sarah's mum: She loved the literature books, she was reading them during her time in hospital!
Sarah's dad:  She's always got her nose in one book or another.
Mrs Marsh: She's always polite and on time. I have no problems at all with Sarah.  Do you have any questions at all?
Sarah's dad: No, that's great. Just what we like to hear!
Sarah's mum: Yes, thank you Mrs Marsh
Mrs Marsh: You're welcome.
 
Sarah's dad:  Mrs Wiggins, you're Sarah's art teacher.
Mr Wiggins:  er yes.
Sarah's dad:  well... is Sarah doing well?
Mr Wiggins:  ...I'm afraid Sarah has problems with this subject.
Sarah's mum: what do you mean 'problems?'
Mr Wiggins:  I didn't see Sarah at all last term.  I know she was in hospital for a few weeks, but I didn't see her at all for 15 weeks.
Sarah's dad: She was only in hospital for 2 weeks! She just had her appendix out.
Mr Wiggins: Where was she the other 13 weeks?
Sarah's dad: Don't worry, I'm going to ask her that question myself! What about recently, has she been in your class?
Mr Wiggins: For the last 2 weeks, yes, she's attended class. We've been doing pottery. In my opinion she's not really interested in art and I don't believe she has much talent in this area.
Sarah's dad: Why do you say that?
Mr Wiggins: The only art she seems interested in is drawing on her school bag. She also likes chatting to her friend Rachel a lot.
Sarah's mum: I can't believe this! This doesn't sound like Sarah!
Sarah's dad: Maureen, we don't know what Sarah's like at school, that's why we're here.
Mr Wiggins: I'm sorry. I can't give her a good report. She's only produced one painting all year and that was only average.
Sarah's dad: Like I said, I'm going to talk to Sarah when I get home. I'll be very interested to see what she says.
Mr Wiggins: If her attendance doesn't improve then I'll ask the headmaster to write to you. Is she going to other classes?
Sarah's mum: We've only spoken to her English teacher so far. She's very happy with Sarah's progress.
Mr Wiggins: OK well, hopefully after you've talked to her, she'll start attending my classes and her art can improve.
Sarah's mum: I'm very sorry about this.
Mr Wiggins: No problem, hopefully I won't need to speak to you soon!
Sarah's dad: I'll make sure of that!
 
Sarah's mum: Mr Gardener, hello, you're Sarah's geography teacher is that right?
Mr Gardener: Yes I am. Hello.
Sarah's dad: Can I ask if Sarah has come to all of your classes?
Sarah's mum: Robert!
Sarah's dad: I'm just checking.
Mr Gardener: Yes, of course. She obviously missed a couple whilst she was in hospital but otherwise her attendance is very good. I do have one or two concerns about Sarah though. She talks too much with her friends in class, really, she never shuts up!
Sarah's mum: I know she's a bit of a chatterbox but is she really that bad?
Mr Gardener: I've given her 3 detentions this term! She's very intelligent but if she doesn't apply herself and study there's the possibility that she'll fail the exams in June. There's a lot of work in this year's syllabus and she's behind from her time in hospital anyway. You really need to talk to her.
Sarah's mum: I will. Can you recommend any books for her to study.
Mr Gardener: I'll give you the name of a book, plus there are a couple of websites that could help her with revision too.
Sarah's dad: Thanks very much. That'd be really helpful.
