Parents and teachers in the school for parent-teacher interviews

Parent-teacher interviews

 

Parent-teacher interviews can sometimes be a little daunting, especially if we weren’t the most enthusiastic students ourselves. But these opportunities to touch base with your child’s teachers are important and you shouldn’t miss them.

Volunteering at school

 

Helping out at school is a great way to get involved in your child’s education as well as get to know the staff and other parents and carers. Research shows that children benefit when their parents or carers are actively involved in their education and school life.
