Why should you attend?

The evening will include:
  • Practical strategies for home and school
  • Opportunity to expand your knowledge and skills for your children and yourself
  • A chance to meet and work with parents and educators, all striving to support children/students
  • Ways for you to increase your voice and influence

The evidence is consistent, positive and convincing: Families have a major influence on their children's achievement. When schools, families and community groups work together to support learning, children tend to do better in school, stay in school longer, and like school more.
