The 3 Ways Parents can Help Teachers
Be involved in your child’s education – show them that you care and create a positive ‘triangle’ relationship between yourself, your child and your child’s teacher.
Educate yourself on the current trends in education – how is your child’s teacher
educating your child. Times change and so does the way we teach. We encourage parents to explore the new ways of learning, to best support and guide your
child through their learning journey.
Send them to school happy – Give your child a hug before they walk out the door and
you head off to work. Look them in the eye and tell them how much you love them, how
proud of them you are and boost their confidence every day. They will be more secure
and ready to start a positive day of learning.
The Value of Students Coming to School Every Day
In the event the your student is unable to attend school please send excuses in the following day with your child.
It is important to have our students attend school regularly. Please make every effort to schedule appointments after school hours when possible.
In the event that you need to pick your student up early for an appointment or if they are ill, please have photo identification ready when you come to the door. We hope you understand that the safety of your children come first
