Were among the highlights of the acquaintance session.
To complete the ‘meet and greet’, the parents were given the chance to talk and discuss with their children’s class teachers and subject teachers on matters related to students’ academic activities and progress in school. Furthermore, the stakeholders got to know what to expect this Academic Year 2020.
The favourable response of the parents as shown in the attendance speaks much of their willingness to work closely with the school. After all, they truly play an important role in their children’s academic journey. As the saying goes, “At the end of the day, the overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents. With this, we in Seri Mulia Sarjana School express our sincerest gratitude to our partners in learning for their utmost support at all times!
To the SMSS parents, thank you for sharing your time with us. We hope for more opportunities to work closely with you.
We get to personally talk to their teachers and some school officials. They inform us about important matters related to our child’s progress in school, academically and even socially. For those who have any subject area problems, parents are also given tips on how to help their sons and daughters cope in class; and if lucky enough, extra study sessions with the teacher in charge,” Diwata shared further.
Many schools organise orientation programs for parents of children who are about to join primary school, middle school and high school. Such orientation programs are fantastic opportunities for parents to know what to expect in the coming year and also equip themselves for it. They also get to know the teachers in the different classes. The schools explain the pattern for conducting examinations, the extracurricular activities, the support required from parents etc.
I firmly believe that communication between ANS parents and the School is very important. Clearly, student achievement is not just about what happens in the classroom but also requires a strong partnership between home and school. I encourage you to get involved in the learning of your child. You can do this by making sure your child attends school daily, completes homework assignments, is prepared for school, and most importantly that he/she gets the support they need at home. Your child’s teacher is your first school contact for questions, concerns or information about academic activities and progress. Please make sure the communication is open and fluent with him/her throughout the year. Also, I invite you to visit the ANS webpage, www.ans.edu.ni, regularly and read the information sent home so that you are kept up to date on activities, programs and initiatives.
