There are many ways in which parents can be involved in their child's education including:
- becoming involved in their children's education at school and in the community
- asking them what they learnt at school today
- helping them to meet assessment task deadlines by helping them set goals, manage their time better
- reinforcing the expectations of the college in relation to uniform, behaviour and work ethic
- attending parent-teacher interviews
- attending college information evenings
- being involved in the various parents bodies of the college e.g. P & F, Support Groups
- coming along and watching them perform in their musical, cultural or sporting groups or teams
- helping out in their child's classroom
- taking an interest in what they are doing at school (both in and out of the classroom)
- emphasize effort at least as much as achievement.When parents ask what they can do to help their child the reply is ‘be interested in everything that they do and above all, as often as you can, be there to watch then in action in this most exciting phase of their life.
We see your child's growth and development as a shared responsibility. After your, the child spends up to seven hours a day or thirty-five hours a week in the care of the college.
Parents have the key role in character making, modelling philosophy and building attitudes, values and self-esteem.
Where these values are shared we can only back you up, and will.
